These pages contain options for you to retrieve data relating to Air Quality in Scotland from the present day back to 1986.
The database contains tables of measured concentration data and statistics from the air quality monitoring sites operated by Defra, the Scottish Government and Local Authorities. Estimates of emissions - the amount of pollution produced by a range of activities can be obtained from the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory (NAEI)
National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory provides data on pollutant emissions and summary information on impacts.
The NAEI compiles estimates of emissions to the atmosphere from UK sources such as cars, trucks, power stations and industrial plant. These emissions are estimated to help to find ways of reducing the impact of human activities on the environment and our health.
