Farm fire adds 4% pullution to Capital’s air

Saturday, 23 October 2021 | PNS | NEW DELHI

According to SAFAR (System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research), a unit of the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MOEs), the farm fire impact was four per cent. “As per SAFAR methodology effective fire counts are 894 and its share is 4% in Delhi’s PM2.5 as transport level winds are not favourable for intrusion. In presence of local dry weather and westerly wind local dust emission will lead to high PM10. Additional dust transport from Rajasthan desert areas due to higher winds and dry conditions are contributing to PM10 enhancement. Impact of fire emission is almost negligible due to faster dispersion and unfavorable wind direction. The overall AQI is forecasted to remain in moderate for next two days.”
