EIPL Meteorological conditions in northern india
Modelling is the Key to planning for Sustainable Development. Mathematical modelling of the dispersion or spread of the pollutants in the atmosphere is the most crucial tool for ambient air-quality management in India to ensure that human activities do not degrade air-quality adversely affecting ecological or other sensitive interests. Reliable modelling of such dispersion help in decisions of on-site clearance of proposed projects. This chapter focuses on meteorology that defines all physical characteristics of the atmosphere including all forms and factors of its movement and the spread of pollutants.
