A009 - Aerosols and Air Quality over South Asia and the Hindu Kush-Himalaya
The densely populated Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP), south of the Hindu Kush-Himalaya (HKH), is subjected to persistently high loadings of aerosols and key air pollutants, which lead to poor air quality and impact the regional atmospheric chemistry, climate, public health and agriculture. Dense smog associated with crop burning, urban/industrial emissions and residential heating/cooking, during the dry autumn-winter period, often results in alarming degradation of air quality.
