Improving understanding of emissions of air pollutants within and upwind of the HKH region

  • Achieved improved understanding of the socioeconomic processes that lead to emissions and of the chemical composition of emissions from different sources; currently developing and improving emission inventories relevant to the HKH

  •  Collaborated with researchers and partners from the US to quantify emissions from brick kilns, cook stoves, garbage fires, agricultural open burning, and diesel pumps and generators

  •  Currently developing an improved gridded emissions inventory

  •  Conducted studies to improve understanding of the causes and drivers of the recent increase in the practice of setting fields on fire to get rid of agricultural residue
