Air Quality Management of PM in Delhi through:
moderate wind conditions.
next 10 years.
The concentration of PM due to line source in low winds (u< 1 m/sec) conditions is
and the concentration for moderate winds (u> 1 m/sec) is
C = concentration (mg/m3) ; Q = Source strength (mg/sec) ;
U = Wind speed (m/sec) ;
(x’, y’, z’) = location of source (m) ; (x, y, z) = location of receptor (m) ;
(sx, sy,sz) = dispersion parameters (m) in x, y, z directions respectively.

located within that grid.
Emission rate of PM has been estimated in each grid on hourly basis by using secondary data of vehicular traffic and apportioned according to the following methods:
E = Emission rate (gm/sec)
i = Index, varies over six categories of vehicles.
Ni = Number of registered vehicles in i th category
TDi =Travel demand for vehicular category i (km/day)
VKT= Vehicle Kilometer traveled (Km)
ei = Emission factor (g/km) for the pollutant of the vehicular category i
Vehicles are categorized into 6 vehicle category: Cars, Two wheeler, Three wheeler, Buses, Taxi, and Goods vehicles.

of the grids of the study area
residential roads is in the ratio of 43: 33:24 respectively.
Hourly variation of emission rates of PM has been determined by different methods, which reveals that emission of PM from different methods are well in agreement with observed values.
An emission inventory of vehicles has been prepared over the map of Delhi, which gives emission rate of PM in each grid.
PM Emission at ITO
Forecasting of PM emissions, on the basis of present emission scenario, for future years (2005-2014) is showing slightly increasing values.

between 9 AM to 11 AM and second is between 5 to 7 PM.

Isopleths of PM reflects that hotspots in Delhi at ITO, Shivaji Stadium, Cannaught Place, Dhaula Kuan and Laxmi Nagar have maximum values of PM ranging from 300-600 mg/m3 which are beyond NAAQS (200 mg/m3).
