Doug Fabrizio talks with Salt Lake Tribune reporter, Judy Fahys, and myAir chief scientist, Steve Packham, about the differences between summer and winter air quality. Although winter tends to get a bad rap for air pollution with it’s gray, hazy smog, summer has effects of its own: dangerous, invisible ozone. Steve tells us why ozone is more dangerous than pollutants such as PM10 and PM2.5. Later John Yoon discusses the myAir app and how it can help you deal with effects of air pollution.
The myAir air quality app combines your information with the most current air quality readings from EPA monitoring sites in your area. Your unique height, weight, and age combine to create a specific air pollution tolerance level based on local air quality. These factors allow the myAir app to give you customized information about how long you can stay active and how hard you can play. By monitoring air pollution, myAir lets you know if you need to finish your outdoor activity early or if it’s safe to run another lap, bike another mile, or score another goal.
