Explanations & Credits

The above prediction is based on composite meta model, computed using several Air Quality Forecasting Systems (AQFS):
  • The MACC2 ("Monitoring Atmospheric Composition and Climate") near-realtime surface ensemble forecast ,
    by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).
  • The irCELine (Belgian Interregional Environment Agency) for the Belgian Regions.
  • The LCSQA (Laboratoire Central de Surveillance de la Qualité de l’Air) for France.
  • The RIVM (Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu) for the Netherlands.
  • The SILAM (System for Integrated modeLling of Atmospheric coMposition) for Northen Europe.
  • The EURAD (EURopean Air Pollution Dispersion) for Central Europe.

The above map is based on the PM2.5 surface level modeling, and colors are following the US EPA AQI standard.
The map is computed and updated daily. It is also available for the Asian continent as well as for the whole world.

About the Air Quality Levels

AQIAir Pollution LevelHealth ImplicationsCautionary 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
