Discover DEP: the Official Podcast of the NJ Department of Environmental Protection

Episode 3-Air Quality Awareness Week with Melinda Dower, Air Program Research Scientist

May 4, 2016

This week marks the 10 year anniversary of Air Quality Awareness Week. Here in New Jersey, the DEP is celebrating by keeping residents informed about air quality and the changes they can make in their daily lives that can improve the quality of the air we breathe. While New Jersey’s air quality has improved greatly, ground-level ozone, commonly called smog, is one of our most long-lasting and pervasive air quality issues. Bob Bostock sits down with Melinda Dower, a Research Scientist at the DEP, who explains the science behind ozone and how it is formed so that we can identify how our everyday actions impact ozone.
