Air data

Several times a day measuring stations of the German Environment Agency (UBA) and the German States measure data on ambient air quality in Germany. Shortly after the measurement you can use Germany-wide maps and graphs to get informed about currently measured values and forecasts. Further you can find air quality data sorted by station of the past years.

Please note: current data represent preliminary values which are subject to change due to quality assurance. Back dated values are successively replaced by quality assured values.

Air quality index

How good is the air? The air quality index is based on the measured concentrations of three pollutants (nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter (PM₁₀ and PM₂,₅) and ozone). The concentration most hazardous to health determines the total index. More information on the index calculation you can get in the calculation base.
