App of the morning

Brisbane’s hay fever and seasonal asthma sufferers can know when to brace for misery, with a QUT app showing the level of grass pollen in the air and forecasting it for the next six days. Peak pollen runs from mid-January to April. The app uses NASA satellite data which show “green-ness”, indicating grass growth. The app comes from the National Health and Medical Research Council’s AusPollen Partnership, led by QUT’s Janet Davies. Nothing to sneeze at (sorry).
