Plume Plotter

Website shows current state of air pollution caused by emissions from planned (and existing) incinerators. Created by a non-expert to get an objective idea about the everyday effects of a proposed local incinerator on air quality, now rolled out to many other incinerators and related sources of air pollution.

The Horsham Plume Plotter shows the (predicted) current state of pollution from the proposed incinerator at North Horsham, West Sussex. The red line shows wind direction. Green rings show distance (km). The overlay shows concentration of oxides of nitrogen at ground level. http://plumeplotter.com/horsham/
