Short and medium-term effects of air pollution harms human health and harm ecosystems and economy. Long term pollution affects the environment through: greenhouse gases, ozone layer depletion, acid rain, the presence of micropollutants and suspended particulate matter. To assess the degree of atmospheric pollution, local pollutant emissions are calculated and it is determined ambient air quality.
The purpose of this paper is to highlight people’s perceptions of air quality, through a study conducted in 2015 on a representative sample.
