It fluctuates throughout the day, depending on time and location, meaning that the health risks associated with air pollution can increase depending on how high the local pollution levels are. Luckily, scientists publishing their research in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology have found a way to use smart phone and sensor technology to monitor where pollution is peaking. The researchers noted that it’s important to remember that pollution can vary greatly between school and work environments, or by time of day—for instance, rush hour.

A collaboration of scientists at the Universities of Birmingham and Lancaster has determined that by ‘greening up’ the UK’s streets, pollution levels could be reduced by a staggering 30%. The scientists propose using trees, bushes and other greenery to combat increased heat levels and growing urban ‘concrete jungles’. The ‘green streets’ would also deliver cleaner air in the cities where the pollution levels are at their highest.
