Air­borne pol­lu­tion.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The En­vi­ron­ment Min­istry is call­ing on peo­ple around the coun­try not to use fire­places or solid fuel and biomass stoves to­day due to the like­li­hood of high lev­els of haz­ardous air pol­lu­tion form­ing. The min­istry said that con­di­tions of no winds and ther­mal in­ver­sion are con­ducive to air­borne par­tic­u­late mat­ter pol­lu­tion. Ther­mal in­ver­sion oc­curs when a layer of warm air set­tles over a layer of cooler air that lies near the ground.
