The Science Behind BreezoMeter’s Pollen Forecasting Technology

I’m really happy to present our updated guide, which explains the science behind the BreezoMeter pollen approach and explains why so many health providers turn to BreezoMeter’s insights to develop innovative seasonal allergy management solutions.

What Do We Cover in the Guide?

1. The Heavy Cost of Seasonal Allergy

Pollen allergy has a major impact on health and the economy every year. Researchers have even found up to a 46% increase in asthma-related hospitalizations after high pollen days in the UK, and the CDC estimates annual medical costs in the US connected to pollen reach over $3 billion.

2. Why Pollen Forecasting Needs to be Personalized

Annual pollen seasons are getting stronger and harder to predict. This is in part due to climate change. As pollen exposure also impacts people in different ways, a one-size-fits-all solution is ineffective when it comes to helping allergy sufferers manage exposure.

3. Traditional Methods of Pollen Measuring is Outdated

Traditional methods of pollen reporting are very manual, time-consuming, and often provide delayed results. They also don’t provide personalized health risk assessments, based on the specific allergy triggers an individual is sensitive to.

4. How We Built Our Pollen Forecasting Approach to Meet the Demand for Personalized Information

At BreezoMeter, we move beyond pollen monitoring station data by combining station information with land cover data, phenological factors, satellite imagery, as well as weather & climate intelligence. We then deploy complex AI and machine learning algorithms to generate hyperlocal and data-driven pollen insights.

This unique approach to pollen reporting enables us to provide hyper-local pollen information at a resolution of 1KM, as well as granular reporting – broken down by pollen type and plant species.
