AVERAGE AIR QUALITY INDEX BY DAYS LAST WEEK
This graphic shows the minimun, average and maximun values of AQI for each day of the week, helping us have a first glimpse of the conditions for each day. In the next graph you will see how the patterns can change greatly throughout each day.
on day of the week and time of the day.
UNDERSTANDING THE AIR QUALITY INDEX (AQI)
We use the European Air Quality Index (AQI) to help us understand the data measured by air quality monitoring stations.
AQI takes into account the concentrations of different harmful pollutants:
- Particles less than 2.5 µm (PM2.5)
- Particles less than 10 µm (PM10)
- Nitrogen dioxide (NO2)
- Ozone (O3)
The value corresponds to a scale from 0 to 100 and represents the air quality situation at the given hour at that station.
|EXTREMELY POOR||May cause respiratory issues in healthy people, and serious health issues in people with lung/heart disease.|
|126 - 200|
|VERY POOR||The pollution level has reached a critical level. Even healthy people may show symptoms for short exposures.|
|101 - 125|
|POOR||Effects can be immediately felt by individuals at risk. Everybody feels the effects of prolonged exposure.|
|MODERATE||The air has reached a high level of pollution. Higher than the maximum limit for 24 hours established by WHO.|
|FAIR||The air is moderately polluted. A long-term exposure constitutes a health risk.|
|GOOD||The air is pure, ideal for outdoor activities.|

TRENDS SINCE THE START OF MONITORING
ABOUT THE CITY CHALLENGE
Since the launch of its Air Quality Project in 2018, World Athletics has been working closely with a growing number of cities, sporting venues and events around the world to raise awareness about air pollution and to help find ways to protect athletes by effectively monitoring the quality of the air they breathe. This is done through a network of monitors that are being installed in cities around the world that collect air quality data in real-time.
With the Run Smarter City Challenge, World Athletics is now taking the project directly to running communities throughout the world to help them run healthier and therefore, smarter.
The data presented in this report are collected with sensor technologies that are not regulatory-grade instrumentation following Directive 2008/50/EC.
Therefore, the results presented should be considered informative and not be used for regulatory compliance or checking purposes. Visit www.kunak.es for more info.
