Description: The majority of Class I wilderness areas in Region 2 is high-elevation wilderness. Management of these areas is also regulated by the Wilderness Act of 1964, which states that these areas should be managed such that humans cause little if any impact. When considered in concert with the Clean Air Act, this implies that an adverse impact in a wilderness area is any unnatural change, regardless of whether it may be perceived by humans as positive or negative. With this in mind, the Terrestrial Ecosystems Group proceeded to identify sensitive receptors and LACs in support of our efforts to protect AQRVs.

Keywords: air quality, air pollution, wilderness, aquatics, visibility
