this is the link to the introduction for the video series, which also includes videos on each of the top air issues Alaska Tribes face in
rural Alaska: diesel emissions; indoor air quality; road dust; solid waste burning; and wood smoke (you might have to link each one individually,
or just link to the EPA page).

Should I Consider Air Monitoring?
Air monitoring can be expensive, very time consuming, and may lead to more questions than actual solutions. Therefore, it is
important to carefully consider whether or not performing air monitoring is of use to solving a problem. Monitoring is often
used to determine unknown severity of a problem, whether an air quality control is effective, or to rule out some pollutant as
an air quality concern. here is a map to help guide the decision of whether or not air monitoring should be considered. Provided
