Learn about the quality of the air around us, and how it is affected by pollutants released into the atmosphere through human activities, such as transport and industry, as well as from natural sources.
Air quality in urban areas has improved significantly since the 1950s, but there are still some areas of towns and cities where the air quality is of concern. We have significantly reduced some pollutants through tighter controls on emissions. However, there is still a significant amount of work to be done.
