Smog from northern mainland ‘not affecting’ Hong Kong

SCMP interviewed Prof. Jimmy FUNG, Head of Division of Environment, on 9 January 2017 for his comments on the air pollution peak problem in Hong Kong on last Sunday (8 January). Some people questioned if the toxic smog in northeast China could drift to Hong Kong with the arrival of monsoon winds. Prof. FUNG said that, based on the data from HKUST’s Atmospheric and Environmental Database, there was no sign of connection between the very high PM2.5 concentration in northern China and that in Hong Kong. The data suggested that most of the pollutants were generated locally and regionally in Hong Kong and within the Pearl River Delta region.
