The Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMI) is currently installing new automatic monitoring stations (AMS) in localities not yet covered by monitoring as part of the project Improving the National Air Quality Monitoring Network.


SHMI is gradually launching air quality monitoring in 14 localities. Until now, the inhabitants of Pezinok, Sered, Bardejov and Trebišov have been able to observe the new AMS. Others should be added in the towns of Komárno, Púchov, Považská Bystrica, Liptovský Mikuláš, Lučenec, Poprad, as well as in the municipalities of Oščadnica, Plášťovce and in the Bratislava - Rača district. We will keep you informed about the start of monitoring in new locations.

Measured values from newly installed monitoring stations are available on the SHMI website and are also added on the map web application

SHMI also provides the so-called mobile monitoring through mobile air quality monitoring stations, by which it performs indicative measurements for its own needs and the needs of the Ministry of the Environment of the Slovak Republic.

Within the LIFE IP project - Improving air quality, mayors, after consulting with air quality managers, can express their interest in mobile air quality monitoring. Suggestions for the so-called hotspots are evaluated by the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute and taken into account when planning the location of a limited number of mobile stations in the Slovak Republic.
