Smog in greater Beijing area could be thickened by 15 percent, experts say
Climate change has been making meteorological conditions in the
greater Beijing area more conducive to the generation of haze, and combined with heavy s
mog, the situation could trigger a rapid increase in the concentration of airborne pollutants, researchers said.
The National Joint Research Center for Tackling Key Problems in Air Pollution Control demonstra
ted that without a reduction in the discharge of pollutants, air quality in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei cluster
could worsen by about 10 percent and even up to 15 percent in some cities because of unfavorable meteorological co
nditions, the China Meteorological Administration said in a release on Thursday.
Heavy air pollution and a high concentration of particulate
matter is more likely to be seen when wind speeds are lower than 7.2 kilometers per hour, rel
ative humidity is above 60 percent, and there is less than a 500-meter high “mixin
g layer”, which refers to the atmospheric height over which pollutants can be dispersed, it said.
