Early air quality warning system deployed for Mumbai

Residents of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) can now access real-time and forecasted data on air pollution levels through the Air Quality Early Warning System (AQEWS). Developed by the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), the system provides hourly data on PM2.5 and PM10 pollutant levels across the city. The AQEWS relies on weather forecasts, satellite data, and on-ground data from 24 air quality monitoring stations. The tool can provide actionable forecasts for the near future, allowing citizens to minimise their exposure to unhealthy levels of pollution.
