Bangkok MAP AIR QUALITY ANALYSIS AND STATISTICS

Does Bangkok have air quality maps?

Bangkok now has access to constant data regarding air quality across the various parts of the city. By checking the air quality map on this page, users can find large amounts of informative data that can help them make decisions that may have a significant impact on their health and wellbeing. Air quality maps and air pollution maps are now available on the IQAir website and cover vast areas across Bangkok, as well as many other major cities in Thailand. Incorporating the use of air quality maps into daily life requires little more than checking the air quality map itself and seeing how the US AQI levels are across different parts of the city. For further information regarding the US AQI levels and how they are formed, the following questions will cover this along with many other aspects pertaining to the air quality maps and air pollution maps in use in Bangkok.

Can air pollution maps reduce health issues across Bangkok?

By referring to the pollution levels as shown on the air quality maps in use in Bangkok, 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 Bangkok 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 Bangkok.

This can be achieved by utilizing the air quality map above, along with using the AirVisual app or referring to the city pages.

Can air quality maps give you more insight into what pollutants you may be exposed to in Bangkok?

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 can now see the US AQI levels across a whole range of different areas throughout Bangkok.

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 Bangkok 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 more in-depth look at the US AQI figure, the levels shown on the air quality map higher up on this page 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 Bangkok.

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 Bangkok, 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 Bangkok 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 Bangkok, 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.

Are there certain groups of people that can benefit more from air quality maps in Bangkok?

Whilst many citizens and tourists that inhabit Bangkok can all benefit from frequent usage and checking of the data provided on the air quality maps and air pollution maps, there are certain groups of people in the city and its extended areas that would benefit more from these air quality maps. As has been touched upon numerous times in the previous questions, air pollution maps provide a constant stream of data for users to check, and simply by referring to the air pollution maps at any given time of the day, one can see which areas of Bangkok are the most polluted. The US AQI readings shown on the air quality maps in Bangkok can rise and fall over the day, with some spots that were cleaner suddenly becoming subject to sudden spikes in pollution levels in particular areas on the air quality map. Certain people that may want, or need to steer clear of such areas of higher pollution as shown on the air quality maps would generally fall into several categories.

You have individuals that are conscious about their overall level of health and pollution exposure, particularly with the knowledge that living in a city such as Bangkok, one can be exposed to very high levels of air pollution (once again these areas and times can be seen on the air quality maps) that may get trapped within the many tall buildings of the city, lacking the strong winds to allow the particles and chemical compounds to disperse. As these pollutants accumulate, the readings on the air quality maps will also go up, and individuals that partake in activities such as jogging or other outdoor activities can benefit greatly from checking on Bangkok's air quality map throughout the day, as well as for the year. This also goes for other individuals that as of yet do not suffer from any pre-existing health conditions and the like, but simply wish to keep their exposure levels to a minimum, which is an increasingly wise action to partake in, as pollution levels continue to rise across the world with factors such as population growth, industrial growth and increased vehicle ownership all contributing to large spikes in air pollution levels that can be seen on the air quality maps, both in Bangkok and other cities in Thailand and indeed worldwide.

Other categories of people that may find it very necessary to safeguard themselves from higher US AQI readings shown on the air quality maps include those such as the elderly, along with young children, babies, and pregnant mothers. Parents of children or those who are expecting can refer to Bangkok's air quality map frequently at any given time, and thus gauge how badly polluted any given area is. Plans can be subsequently changed according to the readings shown on the air pollution maps. Others that will also benefit from air quality maps in Bangkok include those with pre-existing health conditions, particularly those that affect the lungs and heart (pulmonary and cardiac systems), as well as those that have compromised immune systems (with this going hand in hand with the pre-existing health conditions, which usually lower one’s immune system depending on the ailment and the extent to which it reduces one’s overall level of health and fortitude). Certain individuals with a hypersensitive disposition towards ultrafine particles or certain chemical pollutants would also benefit well from using the data provided on the air quality maps. So in closing, whilst everyone can truly benefit from the use of air quality maps, there are these certain groups that may depend on them even more so, with critical aspects of wellbeing such as longer life expectancy and less aggravated flare-ups of medical conditions all being taken into account.
