Short summary
We analyze seasonal and diurnal concentrations of black carbon (BC), ozone, and associated meteorological conditions within a remote trans-Himalayan valley in western Nepal. We observe elevated BC concentrations during non-monsoon seasons, frequent and persistent episodes of higher-than-average concentrations, and net up-valley fluxes throughout the year. The findings provide direct observational evidence of trans-Himalayan valleys serving as vital pollutant transport pathways.
