"The Tribal Air Monitoring Support (TAMS) Center strives to develop tribal capacity to assess, understand, and prevent environmental impacts that adversely affect health, cultural, and natural resources."
In 1999, the Tribal Air Monitoring (TAMS) Center was created through a partnership between tribes, the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). It is the first technical training center designed specifically to meet the needs of tribes involved in air quality management and offers an array of training and support services to Tribal air professionals.
The TAMS Center provides technical training of tribal environmental professionals and technical assistance in obtaining and analyzing air quality data. Training sessions occur at scheduled 3-5 day workshops at the Virgil Masayesva Environmental Learning Center and on an individual request basis. The TAMS Center also provides gravimetric laboratory service for tribes conducting particulate sampling. Filters and the gravimetric analysis are provided to the tribes by the TAMS Center.
