Air Quality Index

Air Quality Index

A smog of toxic chemicals has sent a red alert of 'air emergency' over Delhi-NCR, for its upwards ascend in air contamination. The Air Quality Index touched 471 out of 500, on the air scale. Delhi-NCR’s 24-hour PM10 and PM2.5 congregations have been over 500 and 300 micrograms per cubic metre for over 17 and 19 hours, sequentially, state is directed to gather preparations to execute

'Emergency' measures under the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP), including a construction ban,  odd-even traffic schedule arrangements and declining school facilities. No major change in air quality is likely to be expected. 

Pollution has elevated to serious health concerns, as hospitals get overcrowded with patients of chest obstruction, cough accumulation and problems with breathing. So far accounting for the air condition over 8 days, Friday has been reported the worst with a severe drop in the air quality. Experts reported it to be an outcome of stagnant wind situations, heavy moisture, low mixing layer top and low temperature.

Air condition situations staying above 500 and 300 micrograms per cubic metre for over 24 hours, renders GRAP to implement 'emergency' guidelines. As per CPCB knowledge, Delhi-NCR’s 24-hour PM10 focus was at 557.4 micrograms per cubic metre at 7 pm on Friday whereas PM2.5 was 373.1 micrograms per cubic metre all through the day. The minimum secured limit for PM10 and PM2.5 is 100 and 60 micrograms per cubic metre, individually. 

Delhi is facing an immense increase in smog conditions, accounting for poor visibility within the range 300-800m. Safdargauj recorded visibility between 300-500m, Palam was at 500-800m. 

Northern region accounted for such stagnant wind conditions, owing to back pressure from the South East. Bad circulation and ventilation, along with mixing layer height is rendering the fog over Delhi. 

Poisonous air pollution has also reported an increase. The wind speed will favorably be the same, thereby inducing no change in environmental conditions over Delhi. Rainfall is also a far-fetched dream over Delhi's weather report, which could possibly help in retrieval. SAFAR mentioned air high quality is more likely to stay within the 'severe' class till Saturday.
