The air pollution reporting system used in Iran will get an update as soon as the Majlis ratifies changes proposed by the Department of Environment.
In a talk with ISNA, Shina Ansari, director of the DOE Environmental Monitoring Office outlined the proposed changes.
The national Air Quality Index is used by DOE and municipalities to communicate to the public how polluted the air is. The index categorizes the conditions according to a measure of polluting matters into good (0-50), moderate (51-100), unhealthy for sensitive groups (101-150), unhealthy (151-200), very unhealthy (201-300) and hazardous (301-500).
