Evaluation of modelling techniques for air quality management in Delhi

Air quality

The project aims to use established modelling techniques for spatial mapping of air pollutants in the city of Delhi using the data of existing monitoring stations. The spatial maps will provide information about air pollutant levels in all locations of the city. This will help in identification of air pollution hotspots in the city in order to take corrective actions. The project also aims to test the air quality models for forecasting at certain locations, which will help in generating public advisories. Based on this, policy makers can also consider emergency air quality control measures. The project envisages the use of extensive data generated out of the air quality monitoring programmes run by the Central Pollution Control Board , and Delhi Pollution Control Committee and thereby generating useful inferences.
