Pollen Monitoring Report for Tyrol


Latest Pollen Monitoring Report:

Pollen Information Service of the Institute of Botany, University of Innsbruck (Austria) 18.06.2021

After the unfavorable weather conditions for pollen dispersal over the last week, the weather situation had greatly changed with the current warm and dry conditions. Consequently, the pollen concentration in the air is now rising and high.

This is particularly the case for the concentration of grass pollen. The concentration can reach high levels. People suffering from grass allergies can expect moderate to high allergenic burden.

The concentration of plantain pollen is generally increasing, which results in a rise of the allergenic burden.

The concentration of alder pollen is also increasing in the region, although the concentration is low. This is mainly due to the flowering of alder at mid-altitudes (see below) and the dispersion of pollen from those altitudes to the bottom of the valleys.

Nettle pollen are now recorded in moderate concentration in our devices. This pollen is however of minor allergological importance.

The concentration of pine pollen is still high; pine pollen has low allergological importance.

In addition, pollen from cypress family, sedges and elderberry are recorded in low concentrations, which are of a low allergological importance.

Considering the situation in mountains, the pollen concentration is still low at high altitudes (above 1900 m) while some allergenic burden to grass, birch and alder pollen can be expected at mid-altitudes. Note that pollen from alder can further affect some birch pollen allergy sufferers through cross-reactions.

The concentration of fungal spores has decreased since the last week, but some allergenic burden may still be expected.

30.04.2021: Welcome to Sandra Kistl as a new member of our pollen team!

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.
