Palliser Airshed Society

Welcome to the Palliser Airshed

The Palliser Airshed Society (PAS) was established in the Spring of 2003 to monitor air quality in the Medicine Hat / Redcliff region. To date there is one continuous monitoring site and 22 passive sampling sites. PAS also recently initiated operations of an Airpointer® continuous monitoring station in Brooks.

The continuous monitoring site (located in Crescent Heights, Medicine Hat) provides real time data for NO2, SO2, O3, CO, THC, PM2.5 and Meteorological Data. Monthly data from the passive sites includes NOx, SO2 and O3. Real time data from the Brooks Airpointer® are available beginning July 1, 2015.

Air Quality Health Index (AQHI)

The Air Quality Health Index is a scale designed to help you understand what the air quality around you means to your health. It is designed to help you make decisions to protect your health by limiting short-term exposure to air pollution and adjusting your activity levels during increased levels of air pollution.
