Is it possible to use satellites to predict and monitor the development of pollen levels in the atmosphere? We use the vegetation index in our forecasting - using satellite data to measure chlorophyll levels in leaves.
For many people allergic to pollen, timing the start of medication is crucial. Alder and hazel pollen are often the among the first to appear - we analyse historic and current data to give you estimates for the onset of the pollen season in Europe.
Learn how to use our Air Quality API in this short tutorial.
The API is designed for web, IoT, and mobile app developers. It is a free API that gives you access to the PM2.5 concentration at any given location, both current concentration and a 8-days forecast.
The birch pollen season is at its height in Central Europe, with high levels recorded across the continent. Southern Scandinavia is starting to feel the birch as well, and will see increasing pollen levels the next ten days.
Temperatures are rising in Europe and birch pollen levels will be high across Central Europe and southern UK. The front is moving northwards, and Southern Scandinavia and Finland will also see birch pollen levels on the rise.
Oslo, Norway, is like many other cities under Corona virus lockdown. Less traffic let us expect good air quality, but the opposite proved true for the end of March. We investigate reasons behind the high PM2.5 values.
