Abstract (300 words maximum)

Human impact on the world today, through issues such as air pollution and climate change, have become a growing topic as the population and problems continue to increase. This research was conducted to provide data, in the form of maps, to depict how human influence has caused areas from major cities to National Parks within the United States to become highly polluted. With a large portion of the nation believing that air pollution primarily stems from major cities, this research provides a look into the growing issue of air pollution, due to the burning of fossil fuels through sources including agriculture and industrial emissions, within National Parks. The results of the research are used to provide a sense of urgency when it comes to improving the nation’s air quality and provide a better understanding of how these issues are arising.
