Gujranwala MAP AIR QUALITY ANALYSIS AND STATISTICS

Are there high pollution levels on the air quality map for Gujranwala?

Air pollution readings in Gujranwala will show up on the air quality map with some significant or prominent readings, that can be seen throughout much of the year. There are a number of polluting sources occurring constantly throughout Gujranwala, with some areas being subject to higher pollution concentrations than others. Regarding the air pollution levels present in Gujranwala, many came in within the higher rating brackets, which are shown as colored discs on the air quality map above. Many cities, particularly those with cleaner air, will see many discs showing up with green color-coding along with a US AQI reading that is below 50. This is the most optimal level of air quality that can be obtained, with closer to 0 being even better. The closer the US AQI figure is (or the air quality index reading) to 0, the lower the pollution concentration will be along with any other harmful materials such as ultrafine particles, many of which can be just as damaging as some of the gases released into the atmosphere from the standard polluting sources.

What can the air quality maps tell you about the air pollutants in Gujranwala?

The air quality readings present on the map above are aggregated by several main pollutants, which are used to calculate the US AQI reading not just in Gujranwala but throughout the world. The reason for this is their prevalence and release from many of the main polluting sources, and although there are many variations possible, these remain core components in calculating the overall pollution levels into an easy-to-understand number, that of the US AQI reading. Also present on the regular city pages are the various concentrations of the different air pollutants present in Gujranwala and other cities. For air quality measures from years past, PM2.5 is also used, due to it being a very common and dangerous air pollutant that is present almost everywhere (and is also figured into the US AQI reading).

Other pollutants used to form the US AQI figure (as well as inform users as to what pollutants they are most likely to be breathing when they are in an area with high pollution readings) are carbon monoxide, ozone, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide, along with the two forms of particle-based pollution, PM10 and PM2.5. The aforementioned PM2.5 is one of the more insidious ones, and can cover materials ranging from spores, bacteria, metals, nitrates and sulfates, water and oil droplets, silica dust, and black carbon, along with many other materials (some of which can have severely adverse effects on the human body, particularly amongst children or those who are unwell) that fall into the category of being 2.5 micrometers or less in diameter, hence classing them as being PM2.5.

Which people may see benefits from using air pollution maps in Gujranwala?

Whilst all members of society in Gujranwala can most definitely benefit from referring to both the air quality map, or air pollution map pages, as well as the city map pages that show the pollution level as an average throughout the city (as well as giving forecasts and concentration levels of certain pollutants), there are those who due to some reasons, may need to monitor both their health and the air cleanliness levels more closely. For those that are more prominently affected, preventative measures may need to be put into action to stay as safe as possible from breathing any potentially harmful pollutants, looking at both chemical compounds in the forms of gases as well as ultrafine particles that can permeate the air, causing health issues as well as aggravating pre-existing ones amongst inhabitants of Gujranwala. To elaborate on who may benefit from referencing air quality maps and staying up to date with pollution forecasts, such people would fall into certain categories or demographics within the population of Gujranwala. They include people such as the elderly, who are particularly vulnerable to ailments that affect the respiratory tract, on occasion seeing simple or mild infections of the throat or chest turn into ones that lead to more severe complications.

Air quality maps can allow elderly citizens within Gujranwala to be able to spot areas of higher pollution concentrations, and thus avoid them, significantly reducing the amount of haze, chemicals, or clouds of ultrafine particles that one might come into in such areas. Once again, the pollution levels shown on the air quality maps in Gujranwala are generally very good, but can still be useful during times of excess pollution due to a lack of strong winds or rain in certain areas allowing pollutants from cars, industrial sites and power plants, along with ultrafine materials coming from construction sites all potentially accumulating under the right circumstances, which is when the air pollution maps can be of great use. Others include young children and babies, so as such families who are taking care of younger ones can utilize the air quality maps to avoid any higher areas of the city, which can prevent young children from developing potentially lifelong health issues such as asthma, as well as preventing their aggravation.

In closing, others that benefit from the use of air quality maps include those with the aforementioned pre-existing health conditions (particularly of the cardiac or pulmonary variety), those with compromised immune systems, as well as individuals who have a hypersensitive disposition toward certain chemical compounds, gases or particles.

Keeping up with air pollution forecasts on the city pages can allow users to pre-empt when there may be spikes in the US AQI levels, and as such the air quality map itself will show exactly where in Gujranwala these pollution levels are at their highest, so the most vulnerable groups of people can more easily avoid them, along with healthy individuals and those who wish to keep their pollution exposure to a minimum.

What health issues can air quality maps help prevent in Gujranwala?

Air quality maps that inform their user base about which areas of Gujranwala are the most highly polluted, can help avert or at the very least lessen a wide spectrum of different health issues. These include ones such as pulmonary or cardiovascular diseases, as well as issues that affect the skin, such as psoriasis, acne, and eczema. Damage to the circulatory system can take place from excess pollution inhalation, as many ultrafine particles can cross the blood barrier in the lungs due to the minute size, and enter the bloodstream. This can lead to strokes, heart attacks, and cancers of various areas throughout the body, along with damage to lung tissue, causing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) related illnesses to appear, which include pneumonia, bronchitis and asthma.
