BEIJING, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- Beijing's smog is expected to arrive earlier this year, said China's Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP).

The smog, which often occurs in late autumn and winter, has already returned to the capital city in early September. Air quality started to worsen Saturday morning, with PM 2.5 density reaching 176 micrograms per cubic meter of air Men's Air Jordan 13 Retro DMP White Gold Cheap Price , indicating heavy air pollution, according to data from the Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Monitoring Center.

The smog will persist until Tuesday, when rain and a northerly wind are forecast to hit the city.

The new round of air pollution is a result of unfavorable air conditions and high local vehicle emissions, the Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau explained.

Nitrate has been confirmed as a main pollutant, accounting for 30percent of PM 2.5 as of Monday noon.

"Our monitor shows the concentration of nitrogen oxide, which can turn into nitrate Men's Air Jordan 13 Retro History of Flight White Red For Sale , at night is two to four times that of the day, indicating diesel trucks only allowed to enter Beijing at night are the main culprits," said Liu Baoxian, senior engineer at the monitoring center.

Beijing's 5.8 million vehicles produce more than 10 tonnes of nitrogen oxide and hydrocarbon compounds annually. Heavy-duty diesel vehicles only account for 4 percent of the total vehicles in the capital, but discharge half of the nitrogen oxide, and 90 percent of particulate matter of car exhaust.

The case is even worse if non-local heavy-polluting diesel trucks are counted.

The Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau has therefore partnered with 13 departments to improve supervision of heavy-duty vehicles. As of August Men's Air Jordan 13 Low Black Brave Blue Blue Silver For Sale , more than 12,000 vehicles had been fined for excessive discharge on the road.

"Beijing is introducing a smart monitoring system that can capture high-emission vehicles in real time," said Su Xuetian, from the city's environmental protection bureau.

According to the MEP statement Sunday night, the possible earlier smog is forecast based on the melting of Arctic sea ice and the temperature variation of the Pacific Ocean.

It also said a weaker Siberian High was expected to bring fewer cold fronts in the following months, resulting in a more humid Men's Air Jordan 13 Low Chutney Black White , warmer winter, which also means earlier heavy air pollution.

Liu's novel "The Three-Body Problem III: Death's End" did not win out although it was within the finalists of the Hugo Award for Best Novel. The winner was "The Obelisk Gate", the second book of a popular series written by American novelist N. K. Jemisin Air Jordan 13 XIII Retro Flint 2017 Blue Grey , who was the winner of the same award last year.

While Jemisin set the plot on a strange planet, she portrayed a picture that actually happens on the earth, with great effort in depicting the disparities between social classes.
