These are the UK-AIR (Air Information Resource) webpages providing in-depth information on air quality and air pollution in the UK. A range of information is available, from the latest pollution levels, pollution forecast information, a data archive, and details of the various monitoring networks.
There are around 300 monitoring sites in total across the UK which monitor air quality and these are organised into networks that gather a particular kind of information, using a particular method. The pollutants measured and method used by each network depends upon the reason for setting up the network, and what the data is to be used for.
An interactive monitoring map is available to view the locations of the sites in the UK networks.
