Notes

Abstract: Citizens are being increasingly concerned about the local air pollution of natural gas fracking activities. An advanced statistical method (Kolmogorov-Zurbenko filter) is applied to the ozone time-series data measured by sixteen state monitoring sites over the course of fourteen years in Dallas-Fort Worth area. According to the results, sites surrounded by fracturing activities show worse long-term trends in ozone reduction than those located farther from gas wells. Also the findings show that the uneven spatial distribution of gas wells has skewed the spatial extent of local ozone problem. This study, for the first time, is demonstrating the long-term negative effects of fracking activities on local ozone pollution.
