Yellow Sand for Sunday, March 10

It looks like the yellow sand is under 100ug/m3. I think it is better for going out and about today. Anything under 200ug/m3 is ok for outdoor exercise. The KMA website starts its warnings at 400ug/m3, but that is just absurd. That means the air is totally fucksated with that shite. Whatever.  
Have a great Sunday.


  1. Coughing all day, nasty. Plus it was super-windy. Will be investing in dust masks.

    1. I would be interested to see if you can find a mask that will filter smaller particles. From what I have heard, typical masks you see people wearing in Korea will not filter out the smaller particles.
      I don't know exactly how toxic the yellow sand is. I would be interested to see a KMA report on its toxicity, but either: 1)they produced a report and I haven't seen it; 2) they didn't bother to analyze a health-damaging phenomenon; or 3) they are hiding the nasty results from the common people.
