Pollen Monitoring Report for Tyrol


Latest Pollen Monitoring Report:

Pollen Information Service of the Institute of Botany, University of Innsbruck (Austria) 14.05.2021

The summer-like weather conditions over the last weekend and the beginning of this week have resulted in a rise of pollen concentration in the air, in general. However, the current unstable weather conditions would appease this trend for the coming days. Note that the pollen loads can fluctuate a lot depending on the weather conditions.

The concentration in the air of grass pollen is increasing; the concentration is still low, however. People suffering from grass allergies could expect some allergenic burden from now on, depending on the location.

The concentration of birch pollen is low. The allergenic burden can still be locally low to moderate.

The concentration of oak pollen is still high, although we observe a general decrease. Pollen from oak can affect some birch pollen allergy sufferers through cross-reactions. This is also the case for hornbeam and hop hornbeam (especially in gardens and parks). However, hornbeam and hop hornbeam pollen are now recorded in very low concentrations only.

Considering ash pollen, the concentration fluctuates from low to medium depending on the location. A low to moderate allergic burden can still be expected locally.

The concentration of plane pollen is generally low, but the allergic burden can still be moderate in urban areas and surrounding the avenues where plane trees are present.

For information, the concentration of pine pollen has greatly increased over the last days but it is of low allergological importance.

In addition, pollen from cypress family, willow, walnut, spruce, rose family, horse chestnut and sedges are recorded in low concentrations.

During the coming months, we will upgrade the newsletter to provide more information about the pollen monitoring and forecasting in Tyrol, and develop a new version of our webpage. This includes in particular the methods we use for pollen monitoring, the pollen seasons, and the current pollen monitoring/forecasting at regional (Tyrol) and local (within Tyrol) scales. We will keep you updated about the progress.
