Summary

Details about current and forthcoming air pollution, pollen, ultraviolet levels, plus temperature, for Greater London, England. Each of these categories is rated from 1 (low) to 10 (high). The pollutants included in the daily assessment are nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and particulates. Temperatures given are maximum and minimum. The information refers to the current conditions on the day, and the conditions for the next two days. Users can specify which London borough they wish the information to refer to. The airTEXT service draws on regional air-quality forecasts derived from the activities of a European Space Agency (ESA) satellite, and localises the information by accessing data on London road-traffic levels, plus the conditions reported by local weather-monitoring stations from around the capital.
