APHH: Aethalometer measurements made at the Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW) site during the pre and post monsoon periods for the DelhiFlux field campaign 2018
This dataset contains Black carbon (BC) concentrations in ugm-3 measured with an Aethalometer model AE31 made during the Pre- Monsoon and Post-Monsoon periods of the APHH Delhi campaigns in 2018 at Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW) site. The data has been corrected following the Weingartner method. Absorption coefficients were calculated following the Sandradewi model to determine biomass burning and fossil fuel contributions in Mm-1. The measurements were collected at a height of 4m.
The data were collected as part of the DelhiFlux project part of Air Pollution & Human Health in a Developing Indian Megacity (APHH-India) programme.
