Particulate matters and air pollution: an international comparison

If we take a specific date: 26.03.2019 at 13:45. Where were the highest levels of particulate matters? In Berlin, 30µg/m³ was measured, which is below the EU limits but slightly above the WHO recommendations (25µg/m³). In other cities, it was even worse! 129 µm/m³ in Seoul (South Korea), 284 µm/m³ in the Bronx (New York) and up to 999 µm/m³ in Jordan.
