Regional Air Quality Forecasts

The C-IFS and SILAM models are run daily to provide atmospheric composition forecasts for several chemical species over China and large areas of South and Southeast Asia. C-IFS provides maps valid for 2pm local time (CST) while SILAM provides maps of the maximum concentrations during a 24-hour period (00 to 24 UTC).
