Air quality is the presence of contaminants in the air that impact human health and the the environment. Particles are monitored over a period of time and are reported in a concentrated measurement, usually :
- PM2.5 = fine particles with a diameter of 2.5 microns (millionths of a metre)
- PM10 = small particles with a diameter of 10 microns
You can view air particulate motoring on the BC Government website under Air Quality Monitoring or by visiting the Science centre on the second floor.
