Air pollution in Beijing, 2013-2017

Understanding Beijing’s climate, problems and progress

Making forecasts to air quality

This dataset comes with the weather information that is also collected at the same instant, mainly tracking air pressure, temperature, humidity and winds. Parameters are as follows.

We therefore tries to build an estimator: given the time of year and weather condition, we would estimate pollutant levels at the given time.


City average temperature, in degrees Celsius


Dew Point temperature, in Degrees Celsius


Speed of wind in typical direction, in meters per second


Rain/Snow fall for the day, in milimeters


Time of year(month), Time of day
