Due to the volcanic eruption on La Palma (Spain), a cloud is drifting towards Northwestern Europe with increased sulfur dioxide (SO2 sulfur dioxide ) concentrations. The cloud reaches the Netherlands in the night from Saturday to Sunday. On the basis of the available information, there is currently no reason to assume that risks to public health will arise.
The RIVM National Institute for Public Health and the Environment uses, among other things, the measurement data from the air monitoring network to monitor air quality. RIVM measures pollutants in the air at ground level at about 50 places in the Netherlands. We are following the measurements closely, especially for sulfur dioxide.
