Abstract

In 2019, Jakarta received a bad image as the city with the worst air quality in the world. The purpose of this study is to describe the status of air quality in DKI Jakarta based on the national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS) and its impact on health based on the Air Pollution Standard Index (PSI). This study uses data on the concentration of particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter < 10 µm (PM10), sulfur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO), ozone (O3), and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) based on measurements by the Provincial Environmental Laboratory (LLHD) DKI Jakarta in five locations of Air Quality Monitoring Stations (AQMS) during June 2019 which represents the dry season. Each AQMS produces 150 PSI data in June with each parameter having 30 data. Results show that the critical pollutant for all AQMS locations in DKI Jakarta is O3. A high level of surface O3 at various stations is associated with public health risks, including respiratory tract irritation, difficulty breathing during indoor activities, and permanent lung damage from repeated exposure.
