Delhi Air Quality To Plummet After Years Highest Stubble Burning

The concentration of PM2.5 is likely to increase again from Friday afternoon and may remain severe until Sunday

New Delhi:

The queen burned in neighboring districts in Delhi last Thursday was the "biggest record" this year, which could mean further deterioration of the already "serious" air quality of the national capital, a state agency said today.

According to the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, 2,100 fires were registered this Thursday in the northwestern region of India.

"It was the biggest recorded for this year. It was approximately four times larger than on Wednesday," said IITM.

"The concentration of PM2.5 is likely to increase again from Friday afternoon and may continue to be severe or severe in Delhi-NCR until Sunday," he said.

Increasing concentration of PM2.5 (particulate matter in the air with less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter) should be due to "stable" weather conditions that trap the contaminated air mass in Delhi and a significant increase in the contribution of combustion of biomass, said IITM in a report.

The Central System of Air Quality and Forecast and Research of Time (SAFAR) also warned that Delhi's air quality would remain in the serious category until Saturday, as the toxic smoke it smokes from fireworks is likely to be It aggravates due to the intense burning that creeps in the neighboring states.

Burning remains in neighboring states, combined with factors located in New Delhi, such as vehicle emissions, industrial pollution and fireworks smoke around Diwali, each year plague the air quality of national capital every year.

This year also, the level of pollution reached the most serious levels of emergency due to the burning fireworks burning that led to the formation of a layer of smoke through Delhi.

The air quality in Delhi on Thursday left the lists as the smog caused because the smoke of the bales involved the national capital.

The global AQI day was recorded in the "serious emergency" category in 642. On Friday, the AQI registered in 421, which falls into the "serious" category, according to the Central Control Board of Pollution.
