Fog frequencies dominate in urban area than rural area. Increased air pollution in urban area may lead to the atmospheric reactions, resulting into the formation of secondary pollutants similar to cloud condensation processes. Northern regions of India experience severe fog conditions during the winter period (November-January) each year. In this study, simultaneous measurements of particulate mass concentration (0.23μm to 20μm), meteorological parameters and atmospheric visibility in Delhi… CONTINUE READING
