About

Aggregate data about the emission of air pollutants especially those potentially harmful to human health (although it is not a requirement to include information on greenhouse gas emissions). Aggregate means national-level or available for at least three major cities. In order to satisfy the minimum requirements for this category, data must be available for the following pollutants and meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Particulate matter (PM) Levels
  • Sulphur oxides (SOx)
  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Updated on at least once a week.
  • Measured either at a national level by regions or at leasts in 3 big cities.

PortalU is a central portal for environment data including sources at the national and the federal state level. The portal aggregates metadata and links to decentralized datasets and services: http://www.portalu.de - however, the cooperation between the federal states and national government has been terminated, PortalU will go offline on December 31, 2014.

Data on air and water pollution can be found at the the German version of the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register, http://www.thru.de. It allows searching for a specific site, company or field of industry (http://www.thru.de/search/?no_cache=1) as well as downloading the entire database in bulk (http://www.thru.de/fileadmin/SITE_MASTER/content/Dokumente/Downloads/PRTR-Bundle_Herbst-2014_rev1.zip). Searches can be stored as PDF or Excel files, map features can be obtained via WMS. The database is updated twice per year, every April and October. The database covers 2012 as the most recent year, which is due to the rather complicated European reporting system. The most recent update was in October 2014.

The terms and conditions are a bit unclear, as they mainly refer to general use of the site (http://www.thru.de/nutzungsbedingungen/). The terms also state that any use of the data is okay as long as the source is attributed and content is not altered or manipulated. I would interpret this as: "You shall not change values in the database, but everything else is alright", especially because thru.de has an own article on its site claiming they are open data (http://www.thru.de/thrude/auswertung/top-thema/thrude-ist-open-data/).

Realtime and recent historical data about observed levels of air pollutants and particulates at 128 automatic observing stations across the UK are at http://uk-air.defra.gov.uk. Pollutants covered include Ozone, Nitric oxide, Nitrogen dioxide, Nitrogen oxides as nitrogen dioxide, Sulphur dioxide, Carbon monoxide, PM10 particulate matter, Non-volatile PM10, Volatile PM10, PM2.5 particulate matter, Non-volatile PM2.5, and Volatile PM2.5. All this data is under the Open Government Licence. An RSS feed of latest data is available at http://uk-air.defra.gov.uk/rss/current_site_levels.xml , although this points to HTML pages such as http://uk-air.defra.gov.uk/data/site-data?f_site_id=ACTH&view=last_hour . The Data Selector http://uk-air.defra.gov.uk/data/data_selector allows a custom table to be constructed and either viewed or sent to the requestor as a CSV file. However there is a limit on the extent of the query (one test-drive for the Census gave "The selection you requested will return 1176 rows of data in 770 columns. This exceeds our limit of 256 columns."). This meets the Census requirement, apart from bulk download. In addition national estimates of annual emissions of 36 air pollutants from 1971-2011 are downloadable in CSV format under the Open Government Licence from http://naei.defra.gov.uk/data/data-selector, but again this is in the form of a table-builder and it does not seem possible to download all the data in bulk. Further public environmental data for the UK is maintained by several public bodies (mainly the Environment Agency for England and Wales, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, plus Defra and DECC). Broadly speaking, data on major sources of pollutants is readily available via Government websites and public mapping applications. Some complete datasets are available as open data, notably from Defra: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-for-environment-food-rural-affairs/series/air-quality-and-emissions-statistics. Some environmental data is subject to additional licensing arrangements - see for instance http://www.geostore.com/environment-agency/WebStore?xml=environment-agency/xml/ogcDataDownload.xml

Reviewer 2014 - Data continues not to be available in bulk. Added link to the license.

2015: No changes from 2014.

8 Russian Federation

Brief Description

We tried to find this data many times but it's not centralized and most likely unavailable as unified dataset. Russian government delegates ecological issues and pollution monitoring to regional level of the executive government branch. But regional government rarely publish pollution monitoring information and pollution sources. I know only a few public data sources available like Mosecomonitoring (Moscow ecological survey). But even whose data source do not publish source of pollutants, they publish only level of pollutants measured by monitoring stations. Even this information rarely available as datasets, most often this is only "images" and "graphics". So availability of pollutants data for Russian Federation is about 80% - for "No", and only about 20% for "yes". The only available sources: - http://dynamic.igce.ru/ (not up to date) - pollution monitoring and radiation monitoring (by Rosatom) - http://www.russianatom.ru/ I suggest this dataset for following review.

  6. Available in bulk?
    No, data is not in bulk

  7. Openly licensed?
    No.

  8. Is the data provided on a timely and up to date basis? Yes

Comment: Nothing changed since 2014 year

update by Reviewer 2015 it seem the data is existent from-Research Production Association "Typhoon"Russian Participation in GEOSS

also form the site of The Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe

he Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring in the Russian Federation (Roshydromet) is responsible for the operation and development of the state system of environmental pollution monitoring, and for maintaining the Uniform State Databank on the State of Natural Environment and its Pollution. Roshydromet operates a system for the prompt identification and investigation of dangerous ecotoxicological consequences of emergencies. A system of global baseline environmental monitoring is maintained in Russia, and six integrated monitoring stations are located in biosphere reserves. Air quality monitoring is undertaken by the Institute for Global Climate and Ecology, which prepares the annual Survey of the Pollution of the Natural Environment in the Russian Federation http://www.igce.comcor.ru; and the Russian Aerospace Agency (Rosaviakosmos), which developed a system for environmental monitoring in space http://www/rosaviakosmos.ru. Air pollution monitoring is carried out in more than 350 Russian cities. It covers all major industrial centres and almost all cities with a population of over 100,000. The system includes 1,200 stations for monitoring air pollution in cities and other settlements. Around 4 million samples are analysed annually for more than 20 air pollutants. According to long-term observations, in more than 75 percent of Russian cities maximum concentrations of air pollutants (dust, CO, NO2, ammonia, hydrogen sulphide, phenol) exceed established limits. Thus air quality in most Russian cities does not comply with established sanitary and hygienic norms. - See more at: http://www.greenpackonline.org/english/environmental-components.php?id=01-06-07-04#sthash.2EJ4mckw.dpuf

Luftkvalitet.no has data available for download, but you have to be registered: http://www.luftkvalitet.info/omnettstedet.aspx This seems to be so that they can add you to their mailinglist where you get information about downtime due to maintenance etc. You are not given an individual user account.

This year I've updated the 'available in bulk' to 'no' because the web form requires a minimum of 300 submissions to extract all the data - as per this ongoing FOI request: https://accessinfo.hk/en/request/collated_air_quality_data

NB: the FOI response is currently asking for a large sum to provide the data in bulk, but I have not altered the 'available for free' setting from 'yes' because in theory, the data is available for free if you are willing to use the web form sufficient times.

Air polution monitoring data is published once a month. Queries can be made for custom time periods. Measurements include the maximum concentration of carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone and particulate matter.

Air quality measurements are taken by automatic DOAS OPSIS stations ensuring continuous registration of polluting substances.

Update (2015):

  • Not sure if we should consider this dataset timely or not. Changed the answer to "unsure" for now. While the dataset is published regularly and in a timely manner, each location has just one measurement set per month.

  • This dataset has 3 types of measurements out of 5 listed in the census criteria. It does not include measurements for Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and Carbon monoxide (CO).

For 2014's review, it was noted that the main data has not been updated since September 6th 2013 16:17hrs. INECC's web site (http://www.inecc.gob.mx/acerca/831-pol-privacidad) does not use an open license. Under it's privacy statement, it indicates "Some rights reserved" and in the policy legend does not explain the terms and conditions for the use of the data besides explicitly prohibiting parcial or total reuse of content for commercial purposes: "Queda estrictamente prohibido la reproducción total o parcial con fines comerciales de los datos, gráficos e información contenidos en esta página, por cualquier medio y de cualquier forma salvo para fines bibliográficos que reconozcan al autor de los documentos publicados en este sitio."

For 2015: There is no air quality data to other regions beside Mexico City. The information in the portal above does not contain the relevant pollutants. Therefore, I indicated the data as does not exist. The link to Mexico City air quality data - http://www.aire.df.gob.mx/default.php

It seems that all the data is collected monthly but not released by the government. Although a web site of the European Commission publishes data for many cities in France http://www.airqualitynow.eu/comparing_home.php

The previously registered dataset http://www.stats.environnement.developpement-durable.gouv.fr/Eider/series/export/csv.do from Ministère de l'Environnement only provides yearly aggregates at a national level by regions of the required air pollutants emissions. The dataset stopped in 2009 and no update has been published since. Moreover, whereas the dataset requires regular measures, the data offers historical mean annual data. We think this is sufficiently old and unprecise to not be considered here.

Some cities provide data on the national OpenData platform, for example in Nantes http://data.nantes.fr/donnees/?keywords=pollution&sort_search=date, Lyon http://data.grandlyon.com/search/?Q=pollution or Saint-Malo https://www.data.gouv.fr/fr/datasets/indice-iqa-de-la-qualite-de-l-air/ but it is also updated yearly.

In other cities such as Paris, this is closed data http://www.airparif.asso.fr/.

Air quality data on CC-zero license

from open data site of Sweden The air pollutants that are commonly present in both urban and rural air come principally from traffic, combustion and industrial processes. Data from Swedish municipalities on particulate matter (PM10 and PM2,5), nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, benzene, carbon monoxide, benzo(a)pyrene and certain metals are reported annually to the European Commission under Directive 2008/50/EC and Directive 2004/107/EC. Measurements in rural air and precipitation (e.g. ozone, nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxides) are conducted by the Swedish EPA.

in short the data is Exist but not main site of the Government make it the is fond on each municipalities Available in bulk left in Unsure in the statistics sweden site of Sweden shold be a file with all the data for a year but its not fond in During the visit of the site in 22-10-2015 so data is Is the data machine readable and

Qatar Information Exchange publishes some data about gas emissions, but this data is very old (2007).

It is worth noting that Qatar is a very small country and it is unlikely that a city level breakdown could be provided for such data.

add by yaron one city is engeh for Enough for Qatar Because Qatar is a very small country -all air pollution is Monitor except VOCs

from the news Amid ongoing concern about air pollution in Qatar, a new environmental report shows harmful airborne particles exceeded recommended levels for 159 days of the year in 2012. The Environment Statistics Annual Report 2013, recently issued by the Ministry of Development, Planning and Statistics, breaks down Qatar’s air quality levels from 2008 until its latest figures in 2012. It follows data released by the World Health Organization earlier this year, which suggested Doha’s air is among the most polluted in the world.

Pollution

The WHO’s ambient (outdoor) air pollution in cities database 2014 examined air pollution levels in 1,600 cities in 91 countries.

It measures particulate matter, which are small and large droplets in the air. It concluded that Doha had the 12th highest average levels of small and fine particles, known as PM2.5, which can penetrate the respiratory tract and increase the risk of respiratory infections, lung cancer, heart disease and stroke.

According to the US Environment Protection Agency, these particles – which often cannot be seen with the naked eye – are made up of heavy metals and toxic organic compounds, and originate from vehicle exhaust, smelting plants and the burning of organic materials.

Larger particles – PM10 – are mostly caused by dust and smoke. In this category, Doha ranked just outside the top 30.

Standards

While the ministry’s recent report didn’t benchmark Qatar against other countries, it showed that local air pollution levels frequently exceed the WHO’s recommendations as well as Qatar’s own targets, which are more lax than the international standards.

For example, Qatar’s national air quality standards for PM10 are 150 ug/m3 for 24 hours average concentration and 50 ug/m3 for the annual average concentration.

By comparison, the WHO’s standards for PM10 are 50 ug/m3 for the 24-hour average – one third of Qatar’s target – and 20 ug/m3 for the annual average concentration, which is less than half of the national figure.

The MDPS report uses statistics from the Ministry of Environment, which measures air quality at three monitoring stations in Doha – at Qatar University, Aspire Zone and the Mövenpick Hotel on the Corniche.

Levels highest at QU

All three monitoring stations recorded pollution levels above the recommended national and global levels. However, concentration levels of the larger particulates (PM10) were highest at QU station in the north of Doha. That location also recorded the most days when air quality levels did not meet international standards.

Air Quality study - fig14In 2012, the national quality standards were breached on 159 days, or 44 percent of the year

info on AIR QUALITY INDEX of Guatemala(google Translate)

AIR QUALITY INDEX (ICA) The results are on the map of the country and in other sections of this website are referred to as Index Air Quality (ICA), which is an indicator of how clean or polluted the air at the site of measurement associated the health effects that people may experience in a few hours or days after breathing that air. The ICA is calculated according to the established form of calculation for the AQI (Air Quality Index) of the EPA, and while not have a national law governing the matter, it will be based on the standards of air quality provided equally by EPA, considering the following parameters: ozone, particles, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. The ICA ranges from 0 to 500, where 500 represents the highest level of contamination and therefore the highest risk to health. Generally, a value of 100 corresponds to the Air Quality Limit, so the values ​​less than 100 are considered satisfactory. When the ICA reaches values ​​above 100, the air quality in the place is considered unhealthy to start for certain sensitive groups of the population, and then for all citizens to the extent that the ICA increases. It is understood as sensitive groups for sick people (especially those with respiratory disease), elderly and children. http://www.insivumeh.gob.gt:8080/calidadaire/indiceconcepto.htm

These guidelines have been derived from available scientific and human health data, and basically represent "safe levels" below which no adverse health effects have been observed. The MAAGs are generally comparable to the corresponding air quality standards recommended by the World Health Organization and other countries.

The averaging time, which varies from 1 to 24 hours for the different air pollutants in MAAGs, represents the period of time over which measurements is monitored and reported for the assessment of human health impacts of specific air pollutants. As such, the air pollution indices are normally monitored and reported for the same averaging times as those employed for the air quality standards/guidelines.

The API values are reported for varying averaging time as follows:

a) PM10 and SO2 on 24-hour running averages. b) CO on 8-hour running averages. c) NO2 and O3 on 1-hour running averages.

The API for PM10 reflects specifically levels of particulate matter with a diameter of less than 10 micron pollution and it may not be linked directly to visibility factors, as visibility is often determined by results of semi-quantitative observations over relatively shorter time periods.

The API value reported for a given time period represents the highest API value among all the sub-APIs calculated during that particular time period. The predominant parameter contributing towards a particular API value is normally indicated alongside the API value. This approach is an effort to promote a uniform and comparable API system. Ideally, all sub-API values exceeding the API 100 threshold limit should also be reported in addition to the predominant API value per se.

To determine the API for a given time period, the sub-index values (sub-API) for all 5 air pollutants included in the API system are first calculated using the above mentioned sub-index functions for the air quality data collected from the Continuous Air Quality Monitoring Stations (CAQMs). The corresponding air quality data are subjected to the necessary quality control processes and quality assurance procedures, prior to the sub-index calculations. Source of information -

link to a Report Improvement of Legislation on Assessment and Management of Ambient Air from the Report 2.1. OVERVIEW OF AIR POLLUTANTS RELEVANT TO AZERBAIJAN Monitoring of pollution of ambient air in Azerbaijan is conducted by the Department of National Environmental Monitoring in accordance with the statute “On the rules of implementation of state monitoring of the environment and natural resources” prepared by the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, and approved by the resolution No.90 of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Azerbaijan dated 1 July, 2004. There are 3 categories of observation and control stations in order to determine concentration of sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, dust, phenol, and other noxious substances. Observations on the pollution of ambient air are carried out at stationary and mobile stations. Stationary and mobile stations are supposed to be established by taking into account the area, landscape, industrial development, mobile pollution sources, and number of population of each city (settlement) as follows:  50 000 inhabitants - 1 monitoring station;  50 000-100 000 inhabitants - 2 monitoring stations;  200 000-500 000 inhabitants - 2-3 monitoring stations, etc. Monitoring and observation of pollution of ambient air is regularly conducted at 26 observation stations located in eight big industrial cities of the Republic of Azerbaijan (Baku, Sumgayit, Nakhchivan, Ganja, Mingachevir, Shirvan, Lankaran, Sheki),covering basic polluting ingredients (dust, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide), and specific harmful substances corresponding to the industrial profile of each city. The number of stations is compliant with the above-mentioned criteria, except for Baku city, where there are fewer stations than it would be necessary

(No change from 2013) 2015: The agency website is no longer accessible

16.10.2015 : it seem National Agency for Environmental Protection is Monitoring Air Quality data from a CONFERENCE PAPER of Hassen Kchih from the Agency Tunisian Air Quality Monitoring Network Presentation no data was fond in their web site

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/274076911_Tunisian_Air_Quality_Monitoring_Network_Presentation ABSTRACT It is among the basic missions of the National Agency for Environmental Protection (NAEP) to preserve and improve the quality of our nation's air. In order to accomplish this mission, the Agency must be able to evaluate the status of the atmosphere compared to clean air standards and historical informations. That's why the NAEP established since 1996 an Air Quality Monitoring Network (AQMN) composed by thirteen permanent monitoring stations, two mobiles laboratories and a data elaboration centre with the aim of characterizing human health exposure and public impacts of conventional pollutants. In Tunisia, that extends over 163900 km² and includes 24 metropolitans towns, there are several permanent monitoring stations located in many towns like Tunis, Sfax, Sousse, Gabès Tozeur, Kef. In this paper, some stations of Tunisia and its monitoring networks have been selected as representative sites of the investigated area. In Tunis, the selected monitoring stations were located in Traffic area (Bab Saadoun), in urban area (El Mourouj) and in a suburban area (Nahli). Each station is provided with automatic analyzers of O 3 , NOx, SO 2 , PM10, CO and with meteorological sensors such as temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, solar radiation, wind speed and direction. Nitrogen oxides, NO and NO 2 , were analysed using the chemiluminescence method. The measurement of ozone is based on the capacity of such gases to absorb ultraviolet rays with opportune wavelengths, generated by built-in lamp. Carbon monoxide CO is analyzed infrared rays absorption (IR). The measurement of PM10 is based on the beta ray attenuation method while SO 2 is analysed using a fluorescence method. For all parameters, the data are collected by the monitoring network every hour. The data were validated according to this protocol: first, a preliminary validation was carried out by the software, which invalidated all the data occurred in calibration hours and the data identified as artifacts then a manual calibration was carried out by the operators, considering the relations among the parameters. This way it is possible to verify that eventual critical data are related to real pollution situations. Moreover, meteorological data (wind speed and direction) were used to investigate about the influence of natural events on high or low concentration situations

The Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) provides 5 days forecast (6 hours) for Air Pollution, as well as monthly reports for actual observations [http://nwp.gov.eg/index.php/air-pollution]. The Following measurements are required by the Index, and in between square brackets we list what is provided by EMA:

  • Particulate matter (PM) Levels [DUST in forecast, and Particulate Matter (PM10) in the monthly report]
  • Sulphur oxides (SOx) [Sulphur Dioxide]
  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx) [Nitrogen Oxides Forecast only]
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) [Only forecast for Organic Carbon and Secondary Organic Aerosol]
  • Carbon monoxide (CO) [Carbon Monoxide Forecast only]

Reports vary in the measurements shown there. Most of the measurements are missing in recent reports, while they existed in last year's reports. Some other measurements are only shown as forecast but not in reports for actual measurements. The data is only shown in charts, which makes it not possible to extract daily measures. Finally, the most recent report was for May 2015, and it is for one station only (Cairo), older reports had measurements for more stations.

Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) has 5 stations to measure the background pollution around Egypt. The stations are Cairo, South Valley, Marsa Matruh, Hurghada, and Farafra. However, as stated above, the recent reports only shows results from Cairo station, while measurements of other stations were only shown in older reports.

No data is available online for air pollution but it seem the data is Measured -no pm data Exist so the data is Considered non-existent http://www.unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/env/epr/epr_studies/kazakhstan.pdf

The four basic pollutants (SO2, CO, NO2 and dust) are monitored, as are some site-specific pollutants such as heavy metals, HF, HCl, NH3, arsine, phenol, formaldehyde and chlorine. There are no ground-level ozone monitoring data available. Data on lead and other heavy metals as well as benzo(a)pyrene, which were monitored regularly in the past, are scarce at present. No information on PM 10 or PM 2.5 is available. Air quality is assessed according to the so-called IZA5 indexes, which record the exceeding of maximum permissible concentrations (MPCs) of five representative pollutants, together with their toxicity classes. The air is considered polluted, if this index is higher than 5. As shown in table 4.6, air quality has improved slightly in recent years, but still needs to be improved in most cities. Moreover, due to a lack of money monitoring has suffered some inconsistency over the past years, reducing the number of monitoring sites as well as the number of monitored pollutants. The indexes are therefore not always calculated from the same set of pollutants, and this may result in inconsistency. For example, if in Almaty benzo(a)pyrene, also in the highest toxicity class, was included in calculations of the IZA5 index, it would amount to 54. When benzo(a)pyrene was no longer measured, the value of the index fell, but this does not necessarily mean that air quality in fact improved.

Air Quality Report For EIA of The Cayman Islands Berthing Facility

1.1.2 Baseline Air Quality Environment The Terms of Reference (ToR) calls for focus on certain pollutants: nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2), and the finer size fraction of airborne particles (PM10).   The ToR also calls for quantification of Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHGs) focusing on carbon dioxide (CO2).  Together, in this assessment, these four substances are termed compounds of potential concern (COPC). Air quality monitoring is not routinely undertaken on the Cayman Islands, and no data is publicly available on existing levels of air pollutants.   Due to the lack of existing ambient air quality monitoring data available within the study area, a three month survey for nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and sulphur dioxide (SO2) was carried out using passive sampling devices (PSDs) as called for in the ToR.   Use of the small, portable and passive monitors provided readily deployable methods without requirements for local power, and thus allowed for flexibility in sampling site selection.    The objective of the air monitoring program was to determine an initial indication of background (baseline) levels of target contaminants.  http://www.doe.ky/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/App_G_AirQuality_FinalDraft.pdf

The body responsible for environmental issues in Oman is the Ministry of Environment and Climatic Affairs. The Ministry of required by law to regulate a variety of activities relating to pollution (e.g. Ministerial Decision 107 / 2013 requires keeping records of private sector equipment and activities that could deplete ozone - link http://www.mola.gov.om/Download.aspx?Path=decision/107-2013.pdf ) However, it does not appear that the Ministry makes any of the information it collects available to the public.

data is only measured for 1 city -Sohar so its not sufficient to be exist data from-http://aqicn.org/sources/(look for Oman)

Comment: “Data on environment are not available from the Ministry of environment. Few years ago The Cameroon’s National Institute of Statistics did a study on the pollution of surface and ground water in Yaoundé and its impact on population health.. http://www.statistics-cameroon.org/fr5/downloads/EPESS_Note_synthese_version_12_juillet_2013.pdf (this study is not available).”

The data about pollutants emissions have been collected and managed by the Department of Sanitation and Prevention of Environmental Risks. The data have been collected the first time in 2007 with the funding from the worldbank, the Belgium Development cooperation and EuropeAid and concern only the city of ouagadougou. The collection have been realised under the "clean air initiative" of the world bank. Since 2007, an other data collection have not been realised yet, due to unavailability of funding. The data is available in the study report that is available at the direction. There is a project initiated by the Burkina Faso Open Data Initiative to use sensors on arduino, to collect pollutants emissions. This will lower the cost and make available real time data.

Maroc Meteo (marocmeteo.m), has air quality measurements in this page (http://www.marocmeteo.ma/aircasa/public/), you can see the forecast for the current day, and two days ahead, and measurements for previous dates; all shown on a map and you need to hover to get the values (not machine readable). The following pollutants are being measured, PM10, Sulphur Dioxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, Ozone and IQA (Air Quality Index), which according to this (http://www.marocmeteo.ma/?q=fr/indice_atmo) includes the aforementioned pollutants. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs, e.g. Chemicals containing hydrogen (H), carbon (C) and possibly other elements, that evaporate easily, Organic Carbon and Aerosol) and Carbon monoxide (CO) are not measured/reported.

Previous year's comment below: The agencies responsible for this data are The High Commissioner for Water, Forests and Desertification Control and the Ministry of Environment. No data exists at all. The rare details in reports are all non machine-readable (PDFs or static webpage with a chart as JPG or PNG). They do not appear to be up-to-date. Lastly, the reports are not openly licensed (instead, they are property of the institutions that publish them).

The data is in a PDF file from 1994. There is not more data published by the Minister. I am not sure if the data is update, I should request the info to the Minister.

For the ODGI I asked the Ministry of Enviroment and they mentioned that the data is not available anymore, because they got money from international cooperation to do the first reports, but they don´t do it any more.

2015 update data for Air Quality is for one city and only for pm 2.5 the data is updata and is by The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources raw pm 2.5 data is in this link http://www.snet.gob.sv/googlemaps/calidadaire/monitoreo.php for data that of Air Quality Index (ICCA)- http://www.snet.gob.sv/ver/meteorologia/monitoreo/calidad+del+aire/
