“The air quality is poor now. Postpone exercises outdoors!”
“The air is clean. Open the windows that are not on the side of the street!”
Often the weather can be the cause of air pollution. In cold winter nights without wind, there is a higher possibility the air quality to worsen due to temperature inversion.
Particulate matter is removed primarily by rainfall. If the pollution level of the air is moderate to high and it starts raining, about 60 minutes are needed to see a difference. This is why weather can cause and solve the air pollution problem.
The higher AQI score the more it damages your health, it especially worse for people who have respiratory, or heart disease.
* AQI is an abbreviation for Air Quality Index. This is an index for reporting an air quality in the most user-friendly and understandable way. It converts the measured pollutant concentrations in the air to a number on a scale of 0 to 500+.
It is generally thought that AQI below 100 is satisfactory for your health and AQI above 100 as unsatisfactory. As the AQI increases, a large percentage of the population is likely to experience severe adverse health effects.
