Research Highlight


Assessment of PM2.5 and PM10 over Guwahati in Brahmaputra River Valley: Temporal evolution, source apportionment and meteorological dependence

  • Monthly-mean PM10 concentrations above 150 μg m−3 during January–March
  • PM2.5 concentrations are about five-fold higher than the USEPA standards.
  • PM concentrations are ∼50 – 57% lower during the rainy days.
  • High-pollution episodes are mostly due to anthropogenic (natural) emissions during winter (spring).
  • Significant dependence of PM concentrations on meteorological parameters and source regions.
