Air pollution is associated with a number of adverse health impacts. It is recognised as a contributing factor in the onset of heart disease and cancer. Additionally, air pollution particularly affects the most vulnerable in society: children and older people, and those with heart and lung conditions. Over 90% of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions in Bath are from road traffic. The NO2 that we measure at the roadside is from these NOx emissions and a chemical reaction that occurs after leaving the exhaust pipe.
