Stinking around Hangdong,canal road this morning.Smoke quite visible in a number of areas and Doi Suthep starting to disappear. The village at the back of our moo baan have burnt just about everything they could in the last few days with ash falling around a large area.The worst of the burning right next door to the village headmans house/office.

It's going to be a bad long season this year I think.

Cr@p view from Doi Suthep today. Hopefully, after a dry, wet season, less to burn...

Swimming at Kwang Vieng pool,Hang Dong, yesterday ash was falling in the pool from fires maybe a km away.

Lot of smoke which authorities obviously can't see. Makes a mockery of everything that has been promised and we are still in Decemeber.

Driving towards CM Doi Suthep was barely visible at 11.30am

Anyone know where to buy a good filter/protection mask, and a hand-held pollution monitoring kit? (CM preferably, BKK if needs be.)

I drive in to Chiang Mai every morning from the south. From about Thai Watsadu on the superhighway, the pollution becomes noticeable. South of there there is very little.

Today, I was stuck in stop start traffic from Central Festival to Thapae Gate.

I'm blaming the current pollution on the cooler air and heavier traffic combination.

The 3M shop on Wulai road sells 3M N95 masks in bulk, both child and adult sizes.

Dry "wet season" = less rain, less growth, less to burn. Comprendez? Keep of the sauce thumbsup.gif

the locals have caught on as to when to burn and go unnoticed - they've been "discreetly" burning for months now

and those beautiful no burning" signs put up by the government of the province along the motorways?

they'll make a lovely sunshade for someone in need of one

the "dry season" is upon us

the wet season is down the road somewhere

the burning season is about to blossom

Comprendez-vous? would have been more appropriate

drunkards will lie in any ditch and spout what is reality

Hi guys, greetings from Singapore. I last participated in the 2015 thread. How have you been.

This 2016 Thai season is gonna be interesting, coz officially 2015/2016 is a Super El Nino year. We just passed the peak.

I recall 2015 Thailand areas like Chiang Rai peaked at about 600 ug/m3 PM10 (1hr)

Indonesian haze this year peaked at 1-hr PM10 3334 ug/m3 on around Oct 20-22, at Palangkaraya on Borneo island. blink.png

Singapore was affected and peaked at 1-hr PM2.5 of 471 ug/m3 on 19th Oct.

At its peak, it affected Southern Thailand (Hat Yai, Phuket) and also Laos/Vietnam.

Just some videos, a lot of which is applicable to N Thailand as well.

Short BBC documentary on the Indonesian haze

Ground zero, extreme low visibilty
