Ozone Maps of Iowa
Ozone is a major
element of urban smog. Ozone can limit the ability to take a deep breath,
and it can cause coughing, throat irritation, and breathing discomfort.
There is also evidence that ozone can lower resistance to respiratory
disease (such as pneumonia), damage lung tissue, and aggravate chronic
lung disease (such as asthma or bronchitis).
The ozone season
for the U.S. begins May 1st. However, some states including Iowa begin
the ozone season April 1st. Ozone maps are currently available for Iowa.
