AIR QUALITY ANALYSIS AND STATISTICS FOR Sung Noen

Is the air in Sung Noen highly polluted?

The air quality in Sung Noen is considerably polluted, regarding a number of readings taken throughout early 2022, and stretching back to the latter months of 2021. This is fairly typical with many cities and provinces throughout Thailand, particularly those in the northern regions, or even central ones, whereby the slash and burn farming seasons can cause rapid and highly dangerous spikes of air pollution to occur. Clouds of smoke, dust, haze and other ultrafine hazardous particles can settle over many cities, and the US AQI readings in Sung Noen indicate that this is still occurring in late February and early March of 2022. Readings of 155 on the US AQI chart were recorded, placing Sung Noen into the 'unhealthy' air quality rating bracket, which indicates that the air can be quite damaging to the health of those who are exposed to pollutants, due to the high volume of chemical compounds and particles in the air. Other readings taken before this went as high as 175, showing that Sung Noen can indeed have very polluted air, and as such caution should be exercised when spikes such as these occur. Despite these dangerous readings making an appearance, it should be noted that Sung Noen also had days during the same period in which the US AQI levels dropped significantly. Air quality readings and forecasts should be followed via this page or the AirVisual to ascertain when air pollution spikes will occur, and when the air quality will be significantly better so that outdoor activities can be conducted without fear of being on the receiving end of pollution-related illnesses.

What can be done to reduce air pollution levels in Sung Noen?

By reducing the amount of organic material burnt in nearby farms and forested areas, Sung Noen and indeed many surrounding cities and provinces would see massive improvements in their air pollution levels during certain months of the year. Although there are already many rules and regulations in place to prevent mass burning from occurring, enforcing it remains difficult and many fires continue to burn unabated, causing the massive spikes in air pollution seen on record. Other actions that could be taken include removing old and worn down vehicles from the roads (a common sight throughout Thailand, particularly in rural areas), ensuring that construction sites adhere to proper cleanliness protocols (such as hosing down the excess buildup of finely ground concrete or other building material dust or properly securing sand piles, which can cause large spikes in the amounts of PM10 and PM2.5 present in the air if they are whipped up by wind currents). Fixing poorly paved roads can also aid in reducing particle pollution, as well as placing caps or limits on the amount of pollution that factories, power plants and other places of business can produce. These are a few of the initiatives that can be taken for Sung Noen to see lowered pollution levels, with individual contributions also aiding greatly.

What causes the air quality to be poorer in Sung Noen?

The main causes of higher levels of air pollution in Sung Noen come mainly from vehicles, with a large number of cars, motorbikes as well as heavy-duty trucks and lorries all giving out pollution and noxious fumes, particularly if the fuel being used is of lower quality or the vehicle itself is worn down and aged. Other sources of air pollution present in Sung Noen include emissions from power plants and factories, road repairs and construction sites (as well as poorly paved roads also contributing to excessive amounts of dust and finely ground materials being thrown into the air), along with instances of smoke from the slash and burn farming sites being blown over Sung Noen from neighboring provinces and cities in the northern region of Thailand. The use of fossil fuels in power plants, factories and other industrial sites can give off a variety of different pollutants, some of which will be mentioned in the following question regarding which types of pollution can be found in the air in Sung Noen. It is worth noting however that the more extreme spikes in air pollution are most likely to come from either natural disaster fires or man-made ones whereby vast swathes of forest or farmland are purposely set alight to clear crops and trees and return nutrients to the soil. Pollution from vehicles and factories can be considered as more ambient, or year-round causes due to them taking place throughout much of the year. Meanwhile, sudden fires can cause the PM2.5 and US AQI levels to skyrocket, and as such, they are the main concerns to watch out for in regards to the level of cleanliness in the air in Sung Noen.

When is the air at its most highly polluted in Sung Noen?

As mentioned many times, Sung Noen is fairly susceptible to the influence of air pollution caused by open burn fires and the like. Due to these farming practices following set patterns each year, naturally, the pollution levels tend to follow suit, although as with all related occurrences, many deviations can take place that sees unexpected hikes (or indeed even dips) take place in the air pollution levels throughout Sung Noen and neighboring cities. Regarding these patterns that are most likely to take place, Sung Noen will see its highest levels of air pollution in the last few months of the year (typically from September onwards), and these will continue on into the earlier months of the following year, usually carrying on until April (once again with many deviations from this norm being possible) before they abate and return to considerably cleaner levels, due to the absence of smoke clouds floating in from surrounding rural areas.

Which people are more susceptible to pollution-related illnesses in Sung Noen?

Those who are most likely to suffer from negative health effects in Sung Noen include young children and babies, along with pregnant mothers, with many pollutants having properties that can disrupt proper growth (both physical and cognitive) and cause a large number of lifelong health issues. Others within Sung Noen also include the elderly, those with poor immune systems as well as those with pre-existing health conditions or a sensitive disposition towards certain chemical pollutants or particles.
