About WARMS »

The Wyoming Air Resource Monitoring System (WARMS) is an air quality monitoring network maintained by Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming State Office (BLM-WSO). The WARMS network began operation in 2000 as a collection of existing meteorological stations and equipment which were modified through efforts by the USGS and Wyoming BLM to measure particulate concentrations according to Clean Air Status and Trends Network (CASTNET) protocols. Use of weekly average concentrations is used by CASTNET to measure trends in seasonal and annual average concentrations and to model depositions over many years. Air Resource Specialists (ARS) assumed operation of the sites from USGS for the BLM in 2002, and WARMS sites formally became a part of the CASTNET network in 2012.
