Explainer: Ultrafine Dust Crisis

April 26th, 2019

In March, Seoul suffered from the worst air pollution on record. Enough that the South Korean government has officially designated the problem as a social disaster. But what is causing this high level of air pollution – and what exactly is ultrafine dust? And what does the Korean government plan on doing about it? KEI Senior Director Troy Stangarone and Yea Ji Nam are here to answer all these questions.

Yea Ji Nam's recent Peninsula Blog article is a good accompaniment for this episode, and we highly recommend you check it out: http://blog.keia.org/2019/04/fine-dust-impedes-south-koreas-economic-growth/
