Key: PM-10 and PM-2.5 = airborne particulates of less than 10 microns or 2.5 microns, respectively.

Notes: Transportation emissions include all onroad mobile sources and the following nonroad mobile sources: recreational vehicles and boats, airport service equipment, aircraft, marine vessels, and railroads. Lead includes onroad mobile sources only. EPA discontinued lead emissions estimates in 2001. Trend lines shown differ from previous editions due to a new EPA estimating methodology.
