Air quality in times of corona

How clean is the air in the Netherlands, now that the country has come to a standstill due to corona? On our interactive #mapofthemonth we show the difference between the current NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) concentration and the average NO2 concentration in 2019.

The actual concentration map is constantly being updated. Surprisingly, it appears that - even now – at some moments of the day and in some places the current concentration level is higher than the average in 2019. Check the map again later to see for yourself!

By moving the slider over the map, the difference in NO2 concentration now and last year becomes clear.
