The observational mobile station for air quality monitoring reached Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU) here today where it was received by Director, Research, Prof Tarlok Singh Banipal. The mobile unit will assess the pollution levels in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh.

The monitoring of seven cities had started from Chandigarh after which it reached Fatehgarh Sahib and now, the holy city. From here it will go to Mahendragarh, Rohtak and later to Hisar. Meterological research-based organisation Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune, is conducting air quality assessment over North India under the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) project.

The research and forecasting unit at the IITM, Pune, will process the air and weather data through the supercomputing facility at Pune and use it for predicting air quality index (AQI).

Prof Ajaib Singh Brar, Vice-Chancellor, appreciated the efforts put by the department and advised the faculty to play a proactive role in environment management.
