What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Humid, not too dusty. You don't see it daily in the air even though Oman just ranked pretty high on the scale for Countries with High Air Pollution. I don't think that it would be easy here for people with asthma. - Aug 28, 2017
The air is very clean. Most days are sunshine and blue skies. Occasionally, sand will hang in the air, but nothing near as bad as Iraq. - Oct 25, 2014
Great air quality allows for blue skies most days. Occasional dust storms can be unhealthy, but they doesn't last. - Jun 7, 2012
Can be sandy and dusty. But no pollution. You can open all your windows in the winter, but you will find a fine layer of dust on all of your furniture each morning. - May 3, 2012
Very good. - Aug 25, 2011

Dust sometimes and many people develop allergies from this. - Feb 12, 2010
Very good, on the whole, no concerns. Because of the heat and dust, on still days there may be a bit of an inversion layer, but nothing too oppressive or intrusive. - Jan 21, 2010
