What is it?
.ANY VISIBLE OR INVISIBLE PARTICLE OR GAS FOUND IN THE AIR THAT IS NOT PART OF THE ORIGINAL, NORMAL COMPOSITION
NATURAL: FOREST FIRES POLLEN, DUST STORM UNNATURAL: MAN- MADE; COAL, WOOD AND OTHER FUELS USED IN CARS, HOMES, AND FACTORIES FOR ENERGY
How is it measured
AQI: AIR QUALITY INDEX INDICATES WHETHER POLLUTANT LEVELS IN AIR MAY CAUSE HEALTH CONCERNS RANGES FROM 0 (LEAST CONCERN TO 500 (GREATEST CONCERN
Air Quality Air Quality Index Protect Your Health Good 0-50 No health impacts are expected when air quality is in this range. Unusually sensitive people should consider limiting prolonged outdoor exertion Moderate 51-100 Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups 101-150 Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion Unhealthy 151-200 Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion, everyone else, especially children should limit prolonged outdoor excertion. Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion everyone else, especially children, should limit outdoor exertion. Very Unhealthy (Alert) 201-300
The measured polltants
5 Major PollutantS. I..) Carbon Monoxide 2.) Sulfur Dioxide 3.) Nitrogen Dioxide 4.) Particulate Matter Ground Level Ozone
Sulfur Dioxide eproduced when coal and fuel oil are burned .present in power plant exhaust .narrows the airway, causing wheezing and shortness of breath, especially in those with asthma
hese 5 together form...
.Combination of gases with water vapor and dust .Combination of words smoke and fog .Forms when heat and sunlight react gases (photochemical smog) Occurs often with heavy t high temperatures, and calm winds
.1st smog related deaths were in London in 1873; death toll 500 people; can you imagine 71 how much worse the atmosphere is now? Limits visibility Decreases UV radiation Yellow/black color over cities Causes respiratory problems and bronchial related deaths
