6, every AQI sub-index is calculated using Eq. 27) where: Ip the sub-index for the pth pollutant; Cp the concentration of the pth pollutant; BPH,p the breakpoint that is greater than Cp; BPL,p the breakpoint that is less than or equal to Cp; the AQI value corresponding to BPH,p; IH,p IL,p the AQI value corresponding to BPL,p. For instance suppose you have an 8-hour ozone (O3) concentration of 187 µg/m3. 6 for the range that contains this concentration (first column, third row), which is placed between the breakdowns BPL ,O3 = 181µg/m3 and BPH ,O3 = 223µg/m3 , corresponds to the subindex values of I L ,O3 = 101 to I H ,O3 = 150 .

8) For example, when the AQI is 50, the air quality is good with a low risk level, and the associated colour is green. Vice-versa for an AQI higher than 300, the air quality is bad with a high risk level, and the associated colour is maroon. 8. A. A. qualitative description related to the AQI categories are as follows: • “Good”: the AQI value is within the 0-50 range. The air quality is satisfactory, with very little risk to the population. • “Moderate”: AQI included between 51 and 100. The air quality is admissible, however a few people could be healthy damaged because of the presence of pollutant.

What are the sub-indexes and the IQA’s scaling properties? Regarding the possibility of calculating the average, the conventional IQA scale automatically acquires the interval property (Franceschini, 2001). Is that right? The average of the two most critical sub-indexes is really the best model of the problems for the human health? Finally, is significant to notice that the IQA reference values of PM10, O3 and NO2 are considerably lower than the AQI ones. 4 Comments on indicators meaning Let us consider the statement: “Today’s AQI value is twice (150) as much as yesterday’s (75)”.
