Swansea has an established programme of automatic and continuous air quality monitoring dating back to 1994. The City & County of Swansea has declared the Swansea Air Quality Management Area 2010 that encompasses the areas of Hafod, Sketty and Fforestfach during August 2010. Currently, there are 4 air quality stations (two with basic meteorological data), one 30 metre meteorological mast, one 9m meteorological mast on Swansea bay foreshore at Blackpill, one street canyon meteorological monitoring station and one AQ500 SODAR (wind profiler) providing data to these pages. Additionally, real-time PM10 (dust) data is available from 10 locations in Swansea - mainly around busy junctions.
This website is intended to be an online resource of near real-time air quality data and meteorological data, not only for Swansea residents but also for students and medical health professionals alike.
An index has been created to indicate the number of days Swansea and the individual sites are within the Low/Medium/high and Very High categories - this data is available for the current year as well as previous years.
All passive nitrogen dioxide diffusion tube measurements are now available on line for both historical (indicated as grey) and current measurement sites. Please see the bias correction factor to be applied to the annual mean for the year of interest.
A live traffic cam has been provided to monitor traffic flows within Neath Road, Hafod - please see the Hafod Opsis DOAS station information and look under the link "see monitoring station in action". You will need to install the Axis media plugin to view the live images for which Administrator rights will be needed on Windows XP etc.
The site now has Accessibility Options targeted to comply as closely as possible with the AA standard.
