Environment Ministry to test-run forecasts of fine dust levels in Seoul area

The Environment Ministry said that it will test-run a fine dust forecasting service in Seoul and its adjacent areas starting this weekend before officially expanding the service nationwide early next year. The measure is aimed at preventing health issues from arising due to high-density air pollution by informing the people of the level of pollution before it affects the environment.

The dust report will provide information on air quality in a scale of five ? good, so-so, slightly bad, bad and very bad ? based on the average concentration of fine dust. Fine dust is defined as particles smaller than 10 micrometers, and if inhaled it can cause various respiratory diseases and undermine the body’s immunity.

The new system will be operating in the capital city area from Friday and be expanded to other parts of the country in November before the service can be implemented nationwide in February 2014.
