Current pollen forecast in GoettingenPollen data in pollen/m3
Method:The pollen trap is placed on the edge of the "Old Botanical Garden of Göttingen" and is evaluated twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.
Following the guidelines of the German Weather Service, airborne pollen is collected with the Burkhard pollen trap.
Inside the housing is a drum with a transparent adhesive film. A pump sucks through an opening the air, the components of which stick to the adhesive film. The individual sections of the adhesive film are evaluated with a 400-magnification ocular under the microscope. The eight main allergens pollen grains are counted and concentrations in the air (pollen/m3) are calculated.
- Hazel (Hasel)
- Alder (Erle)
- Ash (Esche)
- Birch (Birke)
- Grasses (Gräser)
- Rye (Roggen)
- Ambrosia (Ambrosia)
- Mugwort (Beifuß)
The classification of the pollen load quantity in the air is based on the values of the German Meteorological Service.
- Keine = none
- Geringe = low
- Mittlere = medium
- Hohe = high
- Nicht gezählt = not available
