We will use a three tier system: low (green) medium (orange) or High (Red) indicating the relative levels of pollen. This forecast is based on previous pollen observations, mathematical modelling and Met Éireann predictions for weather.
This TUDublin pilot programme (POMMEL project) is funded by the EPA/Met Éireann.
IPN’s first forecast for Birch (Betula) pollen in the Dublin area. It belongs to Betulaceae family, and is capable to cause strong symptoms in allergy patients, due to its high allergenicity.
