New Delhi Even as airport officials and the Met department brainstormed over the weekend on whether the heavy smog that had settled over Delhi was due to the soot from the Jaipur IOC fire, Delhi pollution data accessed by Newsline before and after the fire, suggests the noxious haze was in the making much before the fire.

The fire at the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) depot continued to burn for the sixth day even as government officials maintained that only one of the 11 containers was ablaze on Tuesday evening, which would be expended in another 24 hours.

Jaipur: A day after the massive fire broke out in Indian Oil Corporation depot on the outskirts of Jaipur, thick smoke clouds enveloped the nearby areas on Friday posing serious health hazards to people living in the vicinity.

Mumbai: Another name has been added to the long list of substances that pollute the air Mumbaikars breathe.

Delhi is pulling out all stops to make the city cleaner and greener before the Commonwealth Games. But one factor is constantly overlooked: the city

Pune In a first of its kind initiative by city-based Indian Institute of Tropical Meterology (IITM), scientists of the institute will assess the quality of air in Delhi during the Commonwealth Games next year. Scientists will be able to predict pollution levels 24 hours in advance at 10 key locations.

In recent years, the large scale urbanization, industrialisation and associated environmental alteration and its impact on biodiversity pose a threat to human existence through basic necessities, recreation and the ecological functions.

THIS is about Delhi for only one reason

CHENNAI: The level of total suspended particulate matter (TSPM) in the ambient air at a traffic intersection in Vallalar Nagar during the 24-hour period ending 6 a.m. on Tuesday was 312 microgram/cubic metre. The permissible limit is 200 microgram/cubic metre.

In the production of coal West-Bokaro area of Central Coalfields Limited, Ranchi plays a vital role. During the production of coal, it produces huge quantity of suspended particulate matter (SPM), respirable particulate matter (RPM/PM10) as well as gaseous pollutants. Which polluted the area badly.
