Pollutionwatch: Beware of wind from the cities

In the latest entry of his ‘Pollutionwatch’ series, published in the Guardian, Gary Fuller, Analytical and Environmental Sciences Division, reports that despite the longest spell of hot weather for seven years, London’s air pollution levels were lower than previous years’ heatwaves. This was due to more ‘favourable airflow’. In the article, Dr Fuller expresses concern about living downwind of a major city, as a result of air pollution that can increase ground-level ozone.

The article was published in the Guardian on 11 August 2013.
