Air Pollution Measurements in Moscow

Map of air monitoring system in Moscow

1. Air monitoring system in Moscow

2. Main terms and definitions used

2.1 LVms and LVda for pollutants measured by ACS network

2.2 ACI (Air Contamination Index)

3. Air contamination sources

4. General air pollution characteristic

4.1 Pollutants' concentrations for different sites

Pollutants Annual average concentration, in LVda parts
Near the roads City centre Residential areas Average for Moscow
Carbon oxide 0.5 0.4 0.3 0.4
Nitrogen dioxide 1.2 0.9 0.7 1.0
Nitrogen oxide 1.0 0.6 0.5 0.7
ACI5 7.1 6.1 5.7 6.2
