AIR QUALITY ANALYSIS AND STATISTICS FOR Anatoli

Does Anatoli have bad levels of air pollution?

Anatoli is located in the Ioannina regional unit of Epirus, with a population count of some eleven thousand citizens living there, as per a census conducted in 2011. It has seen some heightened levels of air pollution in recent times, coming in with elevated readings of PM2.5 over the course of 2020. This continued on into 2021, with US AQI readings also coming in above average levels.

In June of 2021, Anatoli presented with a US AQI reading of 66 in the early portion of the month, a reading that placed it into the 'moderate' ratings bracket, which requires a reading of anywhere between 51 to 100 to be classified as such. This rating is also color coded as yellow, for ease of reference and navigation when looking at the air quality maps and graphs throughout the IQAir website. Of note however, is that June is one of the cleaner months in Anatoli, based off of the information gathered from 2020. The more polluted months of the year will be discussed in further detail later in the article.

US AQI itself is a number aggregated from the various chemical pollutants found in the air, drawing on the main ones and calculating their volume to come up with the US AQI reading. The pollutants involved in this aggregation are ones such as sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and ozone (O3), along with the two forms of particulate matter, PM10 and PM2.5.

Out of both of these, PM2.5 is counted as the more dangerous of the two, in fact being one of the most dangerous pollutants found in the air, due to its incredibly small size of 2.5 micrometers or less (also capable of going down to sizes many microns smaller), and as such is used as a prominent measure of air pollution in its own right, often used to take yearly measurements of air quality. As the PM2.5 for Anatoli in 2020 stands, it came in with a yearly average of 25.5 μg/m³, placing it into the 'moderate' ratings bracket once again (which is taken in micrograms per cubic meter for PM2.5 readings, or μg/m³).

This reading also placed Anatoli in 541st place out of all cities ranked worldwide, as well as in 1st place out of all cities ranked in Greece, as of 2020. This shows that whilst Anatoli has many months of the year that came in with more appreciable readings of air pollution, it also has the direct opposite, with other months coming in with significantly higher readings. As such, the pollution levels should be monitored and appropriate measures taken when they exceed safe levels.

Vulnerable groups of people such as the elderly, pregnant women and those with pre-existing health conditions may need to resort to wearing particle filtering masks, avoiding outdoor activities, as well as sealing doors and windows in their house, along with running air purifiers if possible. Such hourly pollution updates can be followed via the air quality map and graph found on this page, as well as on the AirVisual app.

What health risks can occur from pollution exposure in Anatoli?

Health issues that can present themselves when high pollution spikes appear would be ones that typically afflict the pulmonary and cardiac systems, along with a multitude of other diseases and ailments appearing due to the extremely pervasive nature of PM2.5 and its ability to make its way around the body via the circulatory system (with its extremely small size allowing it to penetrate deep into the lung tissue, causing both scarring and inflammation as well as passing through the alveoli and into the bloodstream).

Once small particles have entered the bloodstream, they can cause all manner of ailments such as damage to blood vessels, ischemic heart disease, elevated risk of cancer, along with strokes, heart attacks, arrythmias and even death in more severe cases, when exposure is both high and prolonged.

Other health issues include ones that fall under the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) bracket, which includes pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma and emphysema. Dry coughs, as well as increased chance of respiratory infection can occur. When the aforementioned inflammation or scarring of the lung tissue occurs in younger members of the population, stunting of both physical and mental growth can occur, due to impaired pulmonary function leading to a host of issues such as poor blood supply, along with the numerous other effects that chemical exposure can bring.

What are some pollutants that can be found in Anatoli?

Some of the main pollutants that would also be found in the air in Anatoli alongside the ones that go into the US AQI aggregate would be ones such as heavy metals, with lead, mercury and cadmium all being found around construction areas as well as certain factories or processing plants.

Black carbon, the main component in soot, along with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are both released from the combustion of both fossil fuels and organic matter such as firewood, dead plants or charcoal. Some examples of VOCs include chemicals such as formaldehyde, toluene, styrene and benzene.

When is pollution at its highest level in Anatoli?

Observing the PM2.5 levels taken over the course of 2020, it can be seen that Anatoli came in with some extremes of air pollution during the first and last months of the year. January and February, along with November and December all came in with elevated numbers, with respective readings of 75.5 μg/m³, 37.3 μg/m³, 51.4 μg/m³ and 35.5 μg/m³.

This placed February, November and December into the 'unhealthy for sensitive groups' bracket, and January into the 'unhealthy' bracket, color coded as red and requiring a PM2.5 reading of 55.5 to 150.4 μg/m³. This would make January the most polluted month of the year, with air that would be significantly more permeated by smoke, haze and clouds of hazardous particles.

When is the pollution level at its lowest in Anatoli?

In contrast to the high pollution levels seen during the winter months, Anatoli came in with some very clean readings in the mid portion of its year. The months of May through to September all came in with the lowest readings of air pollution, and out of those, May and June presented with the best readings at 10.4 μg/m³ and 10 μg/m³ respectively, making June the cleanest month of the year and the only time in which the world health organization's (WHO's) target goal of 10 μg/m³ or less was met, for the most optimal quality of air.
