Atmospheric pollution

Atmospheric pollutionActivities that could result in damage to the atmosphere over the observatories are regulated by the Sky Law.

The law places limits on the amount of industry and polluting activities permitted at altitudes of more than 1,500m above sea level. There have not been any attempts to build industrial facilities above this altitude yet, largely because it is a protected natural area.
