    If memory serves, Ravines is 5 miles (8km) away.

    Default Ravines and Presi's Cam

    Going by my ruler and my AMC map that measurement of 5 miles from Wildcat is right on. However, the measurement from Mount Oscar (Bretton Woods) to the summit is harder to come by as they are not on the same map. I think Bill's estimate of 8 miles is probably very close, though.

    It seems all the junk travelling west to east is all stuck against the Presidential Ridge and doesn't want to move up and over, causing it to be much more hazy on the west side than on the east. Just my opinion, I'm sure someone more knowledgable could confirm or reject this theory.

    Now that I think about it that 3 miles is a big difference. If those measurements are correct the Presi cam is 60% farther away. Its also looking through 60% more air particles than the Ravines Cam. Not a trivial amount.

    I also think that Kevin is right. The air to the west of the Presidentials should contain more particulate matter and ozone.

    Interesting article here on the tailpipe theory.

    Default Tailpipe

    So, if I'm reading this right, the article is saying that northern New England's pollution is coming from Boston and New York and is blown north and west by sea breezes.

    Could be true. I'm no scientist. Just seems the opposite of what I've heard and read.

    I think this is just one study of one potential source of pollutants. I still would not disregard other sources.

    I'm sure when the winds are right a lot of pollutants come out of places like Detroit, Cleveland, Toronto and even Ottawa and Montreal.

    Just a little difference in visibility right now from Wildcat and from Bretton Woods. Might be a little more than just due to the difference in distance.
