Premature Mortality due to PM2.5 over India – Effect of Atmospheric Transport and Anthropogenic Emissions

Studies have estimated sector-specific premature mortality from ambient PM2.5 exposure in India and shown residential energy use is the dominant contributing sector. In this study, we estimate the contribution of PM2.5 and premature mortality from six regions of India in 2012 using the global chemical-transport model.

Ambient PM2.5 exposure and expected premature mortality to 2100 in India under climate change scenarios

Premature mortality from current ambient fine particulate (PM2.5) exposure in India is large,
but the trend under climate change is unclear. Here we estimate ambient PM2.5 exposure up
to 2100 by applying the relative changes in PM2.5 from baseline period (2001–2005) derived
from Coupled Model Inter-comparison Project 5 (CMIP5) models to the satellite-derived
baseline PM2.5.

The impact of air pollution on deaths, disease burden, and life expectancy across the states of India – The Global Burden of Disease Study 2017

Air pollution is a major planetary health risk, with India estimated to have some of the worst levels globally.
To inform action at subnational levels in India, we estimated the exposure to air pollution and its impact on deaths, disease burden, and life expectancy in every state of India in 2017.

The impact of power generation emissions on ambient PM2.5 pollution and human health in China and India

The researchers wanted to know how replacing coal-fired powerplants in China and India with clean, renewable energy could benefit human health and save lives in the future. They found that eliminating harmful emissions from powerplants could save an estimated annual 15 million years of life in China and 11 million years of life in India.

Assessing respiratory morbidity through pollution status and meteorological conditions for Delhi

The study focuses on assessing the status of respiratory morbidity in Delhi over a four years period from 2000-2003. An attempt was made to investigate the role of important pollutants (SO(2), NO(2), SPM and RSPM) and various meteorological factors (temperature minimum & maximum, relative humidity at 0830 and 1730 hrs. and wind speed) in being responsible for respiratory admissions on account of COPD, asthma and emphysema.
