Dinosaur National Monument has added a new view that also serves a practical purpose. Researchers have set up some new equipment around the Quarry Exhibit Hall and Visitor Center. Dinosaur National Monument shares that there is now a solar powered webcam that points southwest into the Uintah Basin so that researchers can look at the air. They especially want to watch cold air inversions during winter that have trapped pollution in lower areas. They also installed new instruments on the ozone station with four new filters that will measure different kinds of particulates in the air. By identifying the how and why of the view changes at different times of year, researchers hope to mark ways to make improvements to the Monument’s air quality to keep it as clean and clear as possible.
