The study of the relationship between the quantity of particulate matter in the atmosphere, weather conditions and types of groundcover is a result of the problem of atmospheric particulate matters in many areas of the nation, in which the level of small particulate matter known as PM 2.5 is harzadously high. Students, teacher and the population have been affected by this problem very highly, particularly since January 2019. The level of pollution in Bangkok and many other areas of Thailand is critically high. The area of Triamudom Suksa School, approximately 32 acres, is located in area of high traffic, thus the authors decided to measure the degree of particulate matter in the atmosphere in all of the aforementioned areas, for it could be known which area is safe or dangerous to the health of inhabitants. For this reason, the authors are studying the relationship betweem the quantity of particulate matter in the atmosphere, climatic factors and types of groundcover to prepare, prevent and solve the problem further on.
This research discovered that the quantity of particulate matter is in relation to relative humidity and air temperature, wind velocity and atmospheric pressure, most and following in order. The research also discovered that areas with tree cover and forest grounds have less concentration of particulate matter, while uncovered areas surrounded by buildings tend to have more.
