Abstract

Rapid economic growth and increasing energy demand, being witnessed in the South Asian region in the recent years, have its impact on atmospheric composition change and air quality. The Indian Ocean Experiment conducted during the late nineties has shown the spread of aerosol haze over most of the tropical Indian Ocean during winter months and an increase in the concentration of pollutant gases such as CO and ozone.
