Air-Quality Resources for Iowa Animal Agriculture (PM 1936): This provides a list of current publications related to air-quality issues, links to air-quality resources in Iowa and links to research reports.
Air Quality and Animal Agriculture (EDC 162H): This is a four-page publication that documents past and current research efforts in air-quality studies at Iowa State University. The brochure also outlines plans for future air-quality initiatives.
