Abstract

Air pollution is a major problem in today's world. It affects things from global warming to respiratory issues. The purpose of this project is to analyze the levels of certain air pollutants in Illinois throughout nine months. Studying air pollution is important because it can be harmful to life and contribute to global warming. The pollutants that we looked at were SO2, NO2, O3, and CO. Data was gathered from the online source data.world. We used the average daily amount of units of pollutant that was detected per day that was given by the data set to find the monthly average for the nine months per pollutant. One possible solution to the air pollution problem are to use green energy sources because the production of energy is one of the largest contributors to the pollution problem.
