The chemical composition of ambient air pollution is also discussed.
Some of the sites were at busy traffic intersections, some on the terraces of offices and residential houses and others in university campuses or airports.
As a result, the key question of the extent of pollution and its distribution across various parts of the city could be inferred.
Further, we discuss the magnitude of health problem with respect to chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD), bronchial asthma and other illnesses.
The results of the literature search showed that data has been collected in last 28 years on ambient air quality in Delhi, though it lacks a scientific continuity, consistency of locations and variations in parameters chosen for reporting.
Here, we explored the extent of air pollution and its impacts on human health in the megacity of Delhi (India) through a review of the published literature.
The study aims at describing the extent of air pollution in Delhi, the magnitude of health problems due to air pollution and the risk relationship between air pollution and associated health effects.
