Air Quality in Hong Kong


Since the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) issued by Hong Kong Environmental Protection Department is not comparable to other regions in the world, Weather Underground of Hong Kong refers to the Air Quality Index (AQI) issued by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and calculates the Air Quality Index based on air pollutant concentration data issued by Hong Kong Environmenal Protection Department.
