Abstract : The existence of large consentrations of atmospheric aerosols over northwest India, especially during the pre-monsoon season, has been noted by several sources. An annual distribution of aerosols at Delhi has been tabulated by Sekhon and Murty (1966). Finally, Raghavan and Yadav (1966) studied the influence of atmospheric particulates on solar radiation, or turbidity, at New Delhi for several years during the pre-monsoon season. In general, these reports indicate that large quantities of particulates are present in the atmosphere in northwest India, with the highest concentrations during the pre-monsoon season, and that these aerosols do influence the radiation of the area.
