Doune Weather and Pollution Monitoring
Air Quality Sensor
The first AQ sensor in Doune is now operational and data is available from around noon 14th Feb 2020.
The air quality sensor is mounted above the Post Office at a height of 4m. The system measures airborne particles in the size ranges from 0.3 microns and above. The limit values in Scotland are expressed as PM2.5 (2.5 microns and below) and PM10 (10 microns and below).
- The limits for PM2.5 are 10ug/m3 as an annual mean.
- The limits for PM10 are 18 ug/m3 as an annual mean and 50ug/m3 as a 24 hour mean (not to be exceeded more than 7 times in any year)
The measurements can be found here Pollution. The circle shows the current value. Clicking on it displays a graph of recent values.
You can compare levels with the other villages in the network by zooming in and out on the map.
To download data use the download arrow icon in the bottom left of the map. To change reported parameters use the ‘cog’ icon. You can also choose the averaging time.
The weather station is also now live and data can be viewed here Weather
Preferred units can be selected as can the time period and averaging. Data is available as a dashboard, tables and graphs.
