The airTEXT forecast service for London has been updated in keeping with the updated implementation of the UK Daily Air Quality Index (DAQI). On 24 April Defra published minor changes to the index to bring it fully into line with EU Limit Value concentrations. The airTEXT forecasts have been updated today to take account of these changes. For more information on the DAQI changes see the Defra report which is available on the UK-AIR Library.
