PMD Pollen Monitoring Network for Spring 2017

The Pollen is likely to start in March in Islamabad and Rawalpindi which coincides with spring season. Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has been monitoring the airborne pollen in Islamabad throughout the year. Pollen monitoring unit of PMD has installed pollen monitoring devices during the spring season in different sectors of Islamabad (H-8, E-8, F-10 and G-6). The pollen concentration increases gradually with the onset of spring season and attains its peak around mid March. The most abundant pollen types in Islamabad are from 08 trees (i. e. Paper Mulberry, Acacia, Eucalyptus, Pines, Grasses, Cannabis, Dandelion and Alternaria). Out of all these plants Paper Mulberry shares about 97% of the total pollen and its concentration touches the extreme limits of about 40,000 per cubic meter of air at the peak of the blossom season. People suffering from Asthma and respiratory diseases experience serious consequences due to sharp increase in pollen concentrations. PMD will continue reporting pollen count on daily basis on PMD website as well as through radio, print and electronic media till the end of the season in mid April. It will be regularly uploaded on PMD website: www.pmd.gov.pk .
