Grass blooming in Central Europe

-

Grass pollen levels high in Central Europe – season starting in north and east

Grasses may be among the planet’s most important plants, but as those of use allergic to grass pollen know the grass pollen season is a long one. In areas like France, it can last from late April throughout to August. In Northern Europe the season is typically one month shorter in each end.

Grass pollen levels are now high across Europe from France to Poland, stretching down to Italy as well. Northern Europe and Great Britain feel the very start of the season.

Upcoming week – spread to the north and east

For the next ten days, we expect grass pollen levels to somewhat decline in Central Europe, whereas Northern Europe and UK will see an increase.

Green in India means red in Norway

We've attempted to compare the different PM2.5 breakpoints in selected air quality indices. It turns out a green level does not mean the same around the world.

EU’s clean air outlook – saving lives and reducing costs

EU has launched its Second Clean Air Outlook report. There are both premature deaths and money to be saved by improving the air quality.

Pilot testing our air quality monitor – where is the pollution coming from?

We are pilot testing our air quality monitors and have started to dig into the first results. We had expected local variations in PM-levels, but it turns out the source is probably found far away from the neighbour's wood burning stove.

Air quality in Europe – it’s going the right way

EEA's recent report gives hope for the air quality in Europe. Most pollutants have been reduced the last decade, but Eastern Europe is still heavily affected.

Winter is coming – with polluted air

As we enter the colder months on the northern hemisphere, air pollution levels rise. Much of Europe is affected, but can hardly match the soaring levels in Northern India.

Birch pollen – how did it develop?

The birch season is over for this year - we have dived into our data and created a visualisation of how it developed in Europe.

Using satellites to predict the start of the pollen season

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.
