Analyzing Air Pollution in Urban Delhi: A Quantitative Assessment of Particulate Matter (PM) Concentrations

Abstract Air pollution poses significant challenges to urban environments, with particulate matter (PM) concentrations being a major concern due to their adverse effects on public health and the environment. This research paper aims to quantitatively assess PM concentrations in urban Delhi, focusing on spatial, temporal, and seasonal variations across diverse urban microenvironments. The research design involved mobile air quality monitoring using real-time PM sensors mounted on a vehicle, coupled with Geographic Information System (GIS) analysis to map pollution hotspots and assess correlations with urban features. The key findings of the study reveal significant spatial variability in PM concentrations, with industrial zones and busy intersections emerging as hotspots for pollution. Seasonal variations in PM levels, with elevated concentrations during winter months and lower levels during the monsoon season, underscore the influence of meteorological factors on air quality dynamics. The study also identifies correlations between PM concentrations and respiratory disease cases, highlighting the adverse health effects of air pollution. The implications of these findings extend to air quality management strategies and public health interventions, emphasizing the need for targeted measures to mitigate pollution levels and protect public health in urban environments.
