State of Nuevo León first to benefit from improved nationwide air quality information system

This CEC initiative, developed in coordination with Canadian, Mexican and US government agencies, is laying the foundation for improved ways to inform citizens around the country about air quality in their communities with real-time data that is consistent with the national air quality monitoring programs in Canada and the United States.

"From now on, we'll have a better understanding of air pollution episodes and their spatial and temporal dynamics in the atmosphere. We'll have the tools to evaluate air pollution control strategies, as well as better communication tools like maps and graphics that track the movement of pollutants, and forecasts of air pollution events to inform the residents of the Monterrey Metropolitan Area," said Fernando Gutirrez Moreno, Secretary of Sustainable Development for Nuevo Len.

Air quality can worsen when the concentration of pollutants in the air increases. The elderly, children, individuals with respiratory illness and those who work outside are particularly vulnerable to the effects of poor air quality. The AirNow system provides information so that these groups can properly prepare by limiting their time spent outdoors, and assists local authorities in their air pollution management efforts. That information will allow the publication of real-time reports on the city's air quality, with information on a wider range of pollutants, including particulate pollution that currently poses a thr
