Residents of Imara Daima, Nairobi, are concerned about air pollution caused by factories in the area.

Higher the particulate matter, lower the bone density.

Morbi: Driving on Rajkot-Morbi highway isn’t a smooth ride any day.

The maximum temperature recorded for Sunday was 33.2 degrees, at par with the normal average for March.

Aerosols play an important role in climate change processes. Among the various aerosols, black carbon (BC) has been recognized as the second most important anthropogenic agent for climate change and the primary tracer for adverse health effects caused by air pollution. The increasing concentration of BC in the atmosphere has now become a matter of serious concern, especially in the high Himalayan glaciated region that has the most vulnerable ecosystem with pristine environment, rich biodiversity and pollution-free ambient air quality.

We studied the impact of the odd–even traffic rule (implemented in Delhi during 1–15 January 2016) on primary traffic emissions using measurements of 13 volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and methane at a strategic arterial road in Delhi (28.57N, 77.11E, 220 m amsl). Whole air samples (n = 27) were collected during the odd–even rule active (OA) and inactive (OI) days, and analysed at the IISER Mohali Atmospheric Chemistry Facility.

Meerut: Meerut-based NGO ‘Mansi Sanstha’ has filed a petition in the National Green Tribunal (NGT) seeking to stop the nine-day-long ongoing ‘mahayagya’ at Meerut’s Bhainsali ground here.

A meeting held in the Environment Ministry reviewed the mitigation measures to combat air pollution in Delhi-NCR.

While there have been substantial efforts to quantify the health burden of exposure to PM2.5 from solid fuel use (SFU), the sensitivity of mortality estimates to uncertainties in input parameters has not been quantified. Moreover, previous studies separate mortality from household and ambient air pollution. In this study, we develop a new estimate of mortality attributable to SFU due to the joint exposure from household and ambient PM2.5 pollution and perform a variance‐based sensitivity analysis on mortality attributable to SFU.
