Research Highlight

Large inter annual variation in air quality during the annual festival Diwali in an Indian megacity

A network of air quality and weather monitoring stations was established under the System of Air Quality Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) project in Delhi. We report observations of ozone (O3), nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO) and particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10) before, during and after the Diwali in two consecutive years, i.e., Nov 2010 and Oct 2011.
