Evaluation of modelling techniques for air quality management in Delhi

November 5, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Air

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.
