CWG Watch: Air Pollution in Delhi - Forecasts on October 10th, 2010

The air quality forecasting system for the National Capital Region (NCR) of Delhi is now operational and issuing daily reports to inform on the movement of the criteria pollutants in the city. This blog is now dedicated to support delivery of this information for the next two weeks to support the Commonwealth Games activities in Delhi, 2010. Page is updated every morning with forecast information for that day and next day (48 hrs).

Among many results available for the public to view, access to the animations of hourly concentrations for the individual pollutants for a period of 48 hours is here. These are not archived - latest is animated here.





For the Commonwealth Games venues, click on the dates to access the forecast information for today (October 10th) and tomorrow (October 11th).



The above maps indicate the Air Quality Index (AQI) at the CWG venues, as a forecast from the models. Details on the modeling architecture and the system are available here.

Results from Previous day (October 9th, 2010).

Modeling team for this project is Aria Technologies SA and Leosphere SA (both from Paris, France). They have previously developed similar systems for the Beijing Olympic Games 2008 and the Turin Winter Olympic Games 2006, and have started working with the city of Rio de Janeiro, in preparation for the Olympic Games 2016.
