27 Mar 2015airTEXT predicted last week's pollution episode three days in advance

Last Tuesday (17th March) saw levels of particulate pollution across London reach 'High' levels, according to the official UK Government definition. The airTEXT air quality forecasting system, operated by CERC, predicted this event three days in advance and as part of the Breathe Better Together campaign this triggered a cascade of alerts containing health advice to health professionals, interested organisations and individuals. The episode was caused by the combination of light easterly winds bringing pollution across from the Continent together with local high pressure conditions leading to the build up of locally generated pollution.
