Nakhon Ratchasima now has air quality maps in use in a far more accessible fashion, which can enable users to get the most up-to-date information regarding air quality from these air pollution maps. With many air quality monitoring stations in use throughout Nakhon Ratchasima, the air quality maps are fed constant updates which show the US AQI levels in detail, with each station showing the pollution level in the immediate and extended vicinity. This high prevalence of air quality maps in Nakhon Ratchasima has a number of uses, which will be explained in greater detail throughout the article. As such, citizens and even those visiting Nakhon Ratchasima can benefit from referring to the air quality maps and air pollution maps that are now available for the city.
By referring to the pollution levels as shown on the air quality maps in use in Nakhon Ratchasima, many individuals may be able to lessen the severity of any health problems that they have, as well as being effecting in preventing them outright due to the informed decisions that air quality maps can aid in. Some quick examples of severe health issues that can be avoided in Nakhon Ratchasima by following the information meted out by air quality maps include respiratory tract infections, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart attacks, skin problems, strokes and many others that can cause the premature death rate to go up, indicating just how necessary it is for individuals to avoid pollution exposure in Nakhon Ratchasima. This can be achieved by utilizing the air quality map above, along with using the AirVisual app or referring to the city pages.
Whilst the city pages typically pertain to a more generalized overview of pollution levels in any given city, using forecasts as well as graphs to highlight not only the US AQI and PM2.5 concentrations, but also show the amount of other chemical pollutants in the air, if such data is available. Of note is that certain cities have more data available than others, with larger and densely inhabited cities being far more likely to have better access to concise air quality data, with demand for this information growing each year as people start to become more conscious of their health, helped largely by many studies confirming the severe damage that air pollution can have on the human body. Regarding the air quality map and air pollution map pages, we are privy to seeing the US AQI levels across a whole range of different areas throughout Nakhon Ratchasima. In understanding what goes into forming the US AQI aggregation, it is formed from the concentrations of several main pollutants, which are utilized as such because of how prevalent they are not only in Nakhon Ratchasima but also worldwide, being released from the standard pollution sources, that includes cars, construction sites, poorly paved roads, natural disasters and factory or industrial area emissions.
Taking a deeper look at the US AQI level, the number shown on the air quality map above is ascertained from the calculation of several chemical compounds, which include among them ones such as ozone, or smog, as it is more commonly referred to when it accumulates in larger (sometimes visible) amounts on the ground level in Nakhon Ratchasima. As it is well known as one of the vital components above the earth that aids in shielding us from ultraviolet rays, when substantial quantities of smog accumulate on the ground level, it can cause a myriad of adverse health problems for those living in Nakhon Ratchasima, along with also raising the pollution readings present on the air quality maps. Further pollutants that are used for calculating the US AQI aggregate as shown on the air pollution maps are nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, along with the two main types of particulate matter, the ultrafine variety (PM2.5) and the larger or more coarse variety (PM10). Due to the number of fine particles that are released into the air in Nakhon Ratchasima from many different sources, they can also play a large part in the pollution readings that can be seen above on the air quality map page. For more in-depth information regarding their concentration in the air throughout Nakhon Ratchasima, the city page can be observed for graphs showing how prevalent these particles are in the air throughout the city, as they are also picked up by air quality monitoring stations.
When the air pollution maps show a higher reading of US AQI, there will be varying levels of the aforementioned pollutants in the air, with some having more prominence than others as a result of what is causing the pollution to occur in any given area (with nitrogen dioxide typically being seen around areas that have a high volume of traffic, so much so to the point that nitrogen dioxide levels that are high in any given area will usually indicate that there are large amounts of traffic in the surrounding area, although it can also be released from numerous other combustion sources). As such, the air quality maps in Nakhon Ratchasima can indeed be indicative of the general pollutants found in the air when higher figures are seen on the air pollution maps, with these main pollutants taking center stage, alongside a huge amount of other hazardous microscopic particles and other chemical compounds, which can include other pollutants such as volatile organic compounds and black carbon. VOCs can maintain a gaseous state at lower temperatures, due to their volatile nature. This makes them much easier to breathe and thus of a greater danger to exposed individuals. Of note is that VOCs are one of the main causes of indoor air pollution levels. Whilst these are not necessarily shown on the air quality maps in Nakhon Ratchasima due to these pollutants being extremely localized (and as such, they may raise pollution levels if an air quality monitor was set up inside a home or place of business). VOCs can arise from the use of many common household items such as deodorants, scented candles, and cleaning products, as well as from strong glues, varnish and fresh coats of paint.
Air pollution maps can be very helpful for many individuals living in Nakhon Ratchasima, as was mentioned in the first question of the article. However, those that may benefit the most from air quality maps (as there will always be certain groups that need greater assistance in reducing their pollution exposure) include those such as the elderly, young children and babies, pregnant mothers, as well as those with pre-existing health conditions. Consistent reference to the air quality maps can help these groups to keep their exposure to a minimum, making air pollution maps particularly vital for the more ‘at risk’ or vulnerable demographic in Nakhon Ratchasima.
