An indicator which is created based on scientific assessment to provide user friendly information about the presence of air pollution and its impact on human health. API value is calculated based on the average concentration of each air pollutant SO2, NO2, CO, O3 and PM10. Dominant of air pollutant with the highest concentrations of pollutants are accounted for as that will determine the value of the API. In general, concentrations of PM10 are the highest compared to other concentrations and this determines the API readings.
Substances in air that could, at high enough concentrations, harm human beings, animals, vegetation or material. Air pollutants may thus include forms of matter of almost any natural or artificial composition capable of being airborne. They consist of solid particles, liquid droplets or gases or combination of these forms.
