What data is expected?
Aggregate data about the emission of air pollutants especially those potentially harmful to human health (although it is not a requirement to include information on greenhouse gas emissions). Aggregate means national-level or available for at least three major cities. In order to satisfy the minimum requirements for this category, data must be available for the following pollutants and meet the following minimum criteria:
- Particulate matter (PM) Levels
- Sulphur oxides (SOx)
- Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- Carbon monoxide (CO)
- Updated on at least once a week.
- Measured either at a national level by regions or at leasts in 3 big cities.

Funded by the Government of Bermuda's Department of Environmental Protection, the Air Quality Program undertakes routine measurements at sites around the island (BIOS, Fort Prospect, East Broadway, and BELCO) to quantify the presence of various pollutants, including:
Airborne particulate matter (TSP, PM10, and PM2.5); Toxic gases (SO2 and NOx); Rain and aerosol chemistry (major ions, conductivity, and pH); Meteorological data (e.g., wind speed and direction) - See more at: http://www.bios.edu/research/projects/air-quality-program/#sthash.aNBEegZC.dpuf
The data are, however, not publicly available.
Largely correct submission. I only changed 'updated in timely fashion' from 'Yes' to 'Unsure' because we cannot access the data and see for ourselves. Also added small note that the data are not publicly available.
