After two months of high-density pollutants stifling Tehran, August offered some solace and its residents once again could breathe more easily.
Data released by Tehran Air Quality Control Company show no significant change in the capital city’s air conditions during the month compared with the corresponding period of last two years.
Charts published on TAQCC’s website, Airnow.tehran.ir, show that in August, Air Quality Index did not fell under 50, which indicates good condition.
The index categorizes conditions dictated by 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).
Moderate conditions, however, dominated the month-long period, as the index hovered between 51 and 100 for 26 days.
