How can I transfer the data for mg/ M2 in μg/ M3
Hey there! Can someone help me with adapting the data listened in mg/sqm to μg/ cubic meters?
I am asking because I am checking the amount of sulphur dioxid caused by the volcano on the Canaries recently. All scientific reports refer to μg/ cubic meters, so it would be good to adapt the data listed by windy.com
For example: what would a data of 270mg/ M2 on windy be in μg/ M3?
Thanks a lot
There is no way to do that. Windy show the Copernicus data which is the quantity of SO2 in a column from ground to the top of atmosphere in mg / m2. But the SO2 is not uniformly spread in this column. And so you cannot deduct the SO2 content near the ground in μg / m3.
If you need to know the amount of SO2 near the ground, it is better to rely on the Air Quality Stations shown on Windy
@idefix37 Hey, Thanks a lot! That information helped. I was actually looking for another source to get severe data on the volcano emission. The amount of SO2 measured by the air quality stations actually stayed the same within the last few days - despite the fact that the volcano changed its behaviour, we had changes in weather as well and the air quality also felt different within these days. So ... could you help me out with another source to check on the amount of SO2?
