The Scotland Air Pollution Forecast has recently been improved with forecasts now more detailed to Scotland at a local level, and also with the addition of new supporting information on weather forecasts. Previously, air pollution maps and data were published on the website based solely on UK data provided by the Met Office. Now more detailed analysis, interpretation and commentary specific to Scotland is provided by Ricardo Energy and Environments experienced Air Quality forecasting team. To provide users with improved understanding of the air pollution forecast, the website now provides additional informative pages on the importance of meteorology. The new pages provide interesting information and interactive graphics which illustrate the effect meteorology has on air pollution in Scotland and how this information is used to derive a forecast.
