Abstract:

Clean air is basic requirement of living organisms. But now a day, due to the unplanned growth, development and vehicular boom, air becomes polluted. Pollutants of major public health concern include particulate matter, carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide and that can pose a serious threat to human health. In the present study, prime air pollutants (PM10, PM2.5, SO2 and NO2) were estimated in seven stations of Dahej area. The projected value of PM10, PM2.5, SO2 and NO2 in all the 7 stations were range from 67.39 to 98.75, 29.57 to 45.79, 17.76 to 22.29 and 28.29 to 32.42 mg/m3, respectively. PM10 level in all stations and PM2.5 level in 3 stations find little higher level than CPCB recommended limit while SO2 and NO2 level were found under permissible limit. AQI values in our study were calculated and it was ranged from 76.50 to 97.75, which are categorized as satisfactory level by CPCB.
