Lubbock is situated at an altitude of a little over 3000 feet at the edge of a caprock. A moderate desert climate allows for arid land farming and ranching and an agricultural economy which includes wheat, cotton, sorghum and other crops, as well as cattle and horses.

Our air is clean, with our principal pollutant being dust from the combination of the arid land and significant winds.
