Remarks:

(1) NO2 - nitrogen dioxide, PM10 - respirable suspended particulates, PM2.5 - fine suspended particulates

(2) The AAQI is updated monthly. The AAQI is calculated based on validated monitoring data.

(3) An AAQI greater than one indicates that the health risk resulted from long-term exposure is higher than that of the WHO's annual AQG, whereas an index below one means a lower risk.

(4) WHO’s annual AQG (2006):


Annual WHO AQG
(μg/m3)
NO2 40
PM10 20
PM2.5 10
