Just to follow up on this thread, I didn't experience any problems
accessing the air monitoring data with the RAQSAPI package that I
anticipated from the US EPA's Air Quality System (AQS) Data Mart
database website. I didn't have to qualify with an agency affiliation
at all, just an email address.

Thanks again, Karl, for suggesting this.
