Researchers from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) Delhi, University of York and Lancaster University at NPL for the DelhiFlux biomass burning experiments. The group are recording VOC, NOx, CO and organic aerosol emissions from biomass burning. These compounds contribute significantly to smog formation. Their accurate quantification will allow emissions inventories to be refined increasing our understanding of the drivers of air pollution in Delhi.

CADTIME citizen focus group in Delhi

On 26th to 28th April 2018, the CADTIME team conducted interviews with air quality experts, and focus groups with citizens of Delhi covering different wards in commercial, industrial and residential parts of the city. The team’s plan is to conduct more interviews remotely from the UK and to organise more focus groups in Delhi for the Autumn/Winter season. CADTIME's vision is to develop practical solutions to deliver clean air for Delhi. A key aim is to engage with stakeholders to understand level of awareness, activities, issues and barriers to change.

Alongside the start of the second intensive measurement campaign in Delhi, the programme-wide Science Meeting provided an opportunity for all projects to update on initial results and plans for the next set of observations. This was followed by a programme-wide stakeholder engagement meeting, organised by iRADe, to continue the dialogue with regulators and policy makers in Delhi, ensuring that the programme outcomes deliver the science needed to improve air quality and human health.

Delhi Flux equipment of to Delhi

The Delhi Flux project group for APHH is in full swing preparing their equipment for shipping to India. As you can see this is a massive effort.  The equipment will be used in their spring field work in April measuring pollutant fluxes over the capital.
