South Africa NO2 Trends, 2005-2016

The trend map of South Africa shows the change in NO2 levels from 2005 to 2016.  The changes are largely due to decreases in power plant emissions to the east of Johannesburg and mobile source emissions within Johannesburg itself.  The areas of increases are likely associated with the reactivation of three shuttered power plants in 2010.
