Smog in Kyiv: the level of air pollution is twice the norm

The level of formaldehyde, carbon dioxide and nitrogen in Kiev twice the maximum allowable concentration. It is reported Mistosite with reference to data of the Central geophysical Observatory of the Ukrainian hydrometeorological center.

Due to inversion (phenomenon when the earth, the layers of air have a temperature much lower than the upper layers) hampered vertical convection of air. This leads to the fact that vehicle exhaust and emissions from industrial facilities accumulate in the near-earth layers and can’t escape. The result is smog.

Samples are held at 16 stationary posts 6 days a week, 3-4 times per day. With actual data on key indicators can be found on the official website of the Observatory.
