Air Quality Index (AQI)
Air pollution is a problem all over Thailand, but in burning season (usually Feb - April) the pollution in Chaing Mai gets particularly bad as there is no wind to take the smoke away.
During this time the Health Office and Athletic Department closely monitor pollution levels throughout the day by checking the Air Quality Index (AQI). From this we are able to make decisions about any activity restrictions at school.
