JARAMILLO, Mauricio; GONZALEZ, Daniel Enrique; NUNEZ, María Eugenia e PORTILLA, Gloria. Integrated air quality index for Colombian cities. Rev.fac.ing.univ. Antioquia [online]. 2009, n.48, pp. 97-106. ISSN 0120-6230.
In this work an integrated index is proposed using fuzzy logic which incorporates information on the two criteria pollutants of highest incidence on human health in Colombian cities, ozone (O3) and particulate matter with diameter less than 10μm (PM10). The index is calculated for current Colombian air quality standards, although its adaptation to others is straightforward.
