Air Pollution in Egypt

The Egyptian enviromental affairs agency is providing three days forecast for quite many places in Egypt: eeaa.gov.eg/موضوعاتبيئية/الهواء/نوعيةالهواء/التنبؤاتبنوعيةالهواء and eeaa.gov.eg/.../airqualityforecast

Unfortunately, there is not any recent information available for real-time air quality data, despite indications that there should be such a network (لقد تم اختيار مجموعة من الملوثات البيئية ليتم رصدها بواسطة برنامج المعلومات والرصد البيئي - A set of environmental pollutants has been selected to be monitored by the Environmental Information and Monitoring Program, ... ). The Cairo University Center for Environmental Hazard Mitigation (CEHM) - www.cehm.gov.eg - has an air quality lab (معمل جودة الهواء), but real-time air quality data is unfortunately not available either.

Measure the air quality in your neighborhood
Participate with your own air quality monitoring station

The GAIA air quality monitor uses laser particle sensors to measure in real-time PM2.5 and PM10 particle pollution, which is one of the most harmful air pollutants.

It is very easy to set up: It only requires a WIFI access point and a USB compatible power supply. Once connected, your real time air pollution levels are instantaneously available in on our maps.

The station comes together with 10-meter water-proof power cables, a power supply, mounting equipment and an optional solar panel.

About the Air Quality Levels

AQI Air Pollution Level Health Implications Cautionary Statement (for PM2.5)
0 - 50 Good Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk None
51 -100 Moderate Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution. Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
101-150 Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is not likely to be affected. Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
151-200 Unhealthy Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid prolonged outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion
201-300 Very Unhealthy Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected. Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid all outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit outdoor exertion.
300+ Hazardous Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects Everyone should avoid all outdoor exertion
