Air quality & airborne dust particle analysis for San Miguel de Allende, Mexico:
This article describes an ongoing series of air quality studies that report on the nature of outdoor airborne particulates in San Miguel de Allende, located in Guanajuato, Mexico.
San Miguel de Allende is a colonial city of 140,000 located at about 6500 feet of altitude in the center of Mexico, about 274 kilometers north of Mexico City. Here we report on the results of air quality tests based on particle samples collected at different seasons and time of day and under varying weather conditions.

Here we provide tables of the contents of typical airborne dust sampled both outdoors and inside buildings in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. Using a Burkard personal air sampler (photo at left) allows high portability and airborne particle concentration sampling in a variety of locations and under varying conditions.
As additional samples are collected and analyzed in our local microscopy lab we will add to the data air quality information describing air samples collected during varying seasons, times of day, and weather conditions.
If our study observes particularly high levels of known or suspected airborne irritants such as common allergens, pollen, or mold (airborne fungal spores) we will note those conditions as well.
Notice: This is an independent, un-funded, private study whose results are shared with the public. These results are in no way "official" and cannot be taken as representative of air quality conditions other than for the specific date, time, and location where samples were collected. We welcome questions or suggestions about this material: please use the Q&A box found at the end of this article.
