AirNOW time zones -- KBenedict May 10, 2007

In the AirNOW dataset that is accessible through DataFed, what is the time zone for the stations data?

Hey Sean, I know Tim may be out roaming the world, so I need a small favor. Would you check with the AirNow cast in your office what is the time zone on the OBS files that we are accessing for the Airnow data. We need to fix the DataFed WCS service so the times are properly encoded with the time zone for each station. Thanks in advance,

Rudy, According to the AIRNow folks here, the time zone depends on the OBS file and is specified in the header (TZONE). The example you linked below is in EDT.
