The Air Quality Index (AQI) of Delhi continues to remain in the ‘severe’ category, informed the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) on Sunday. There are a number of Air Quality checking apps that you can use to know the status in your city. We’ll show you a few of these apps that you can use in your city. The AQI number tracks five major air pollutants – Ground-level ozone, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, Nitrogen dioxide, and airborne particles or aerosols such as PM2.5 and PM10.
SAFAR (System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research) India is a website you can visit to get detailed information directly from Ministry of Earth Science, Govt. of India and the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune. Users will get forecasts of AQI levels and detailed insights including PM10 and PM2.5 levels.
aqicn.org covers most major cities and other areas and sources its data from official local AQI-data providing services.
Breezometer is a feature-rich app that can get your location data either automatically or manually and show AQI information accordingly.
Another nice app you can try out is IQAir+. The app resembles a typical weather forecast application and will show you detailed AQI data as well as forecasts for the next few days.
