Air Quality Monitoring at Blackpool, Cork

The Air Quality Index for Health  is calculated every hour and tells you if air quality is good, fair, poor or very poor in your region. The above index is for overall air quality in the Cork City AQIH Region. You can find out if air quality is likely to affect your health and what you can do to protect your health on the Air Quality Index for Health page.

The Blackpool site was located at the rear of the old fire station in Cork. Monitoring was done using a mobile unit containing continuous monitors for sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and benzene. Continuous samples were also taken for particulates (PM10) and lead.

Results were collected from 19/1/2000 to 31/5/2000 and compared with the Assessment Thresholds in the Air Quality Regulations to determine the long term monitoring necessary.
