Air Quality Monitoring
and Forecasting in China

AMFIC addresses atmospheric environmental monitoring over China. It consists of an integrated information system for monitoring and forecasting tropospheric pollutants over China. The system uses satellite and in situ air quality measurements and modelling to generate consistent air quality information over China. The data covers the recent years and the actual situation including an air quality forecast for several days ahead. Air pollutants covered are ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2), formaldehyde (HCHO), carbon monoxide (CO), methane (CH4) and aerosol/particulate matter.
