Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The effects of combustion of the fire crackers on the air quality in eastern Central India were studied for the first time during Diwali festival. This case study analyzes the size distribution and temporal variation of aerosols collected in the rural area of eastern Central India during pre-diwali, Diwali and post-diwali period for the year of 2011. Fifteen aerosol samples were collected during the special case study of Diwali period using Andersen sampler. The mean concentrations of PM(10) (respirable particulate matter) were found to be 212.8 ± 4.2, 555.5 ± 20.2 and 284.4 ± 5.8 during pre-diwali, Diwali and post-diwali period, respectively. During Diwali festival PM(10) concentration was about 2.6 and 1.9 times higher than pre-diwali and post-diwali period, respectively. PM(2.5) (fine) and PM(1) (submicron) concentrations during Diwali festival were more than 2 times higher than pre-diwali and post-diwali.
