Short summary
Airborne particulate emissions from burning of agricultural residue over the Indo-Gangetic Plain have often been associated with formation of haze and adverse health impacts. Short-term variations in aerosol climatology during extreme biomass burning emissions were investigated using both ground and spaceborne sensors. Results highlight three exclusive but interrelated mechanisms, i.e., aerosol chemistry, regional transport, and radiative forcing, which may be useful in regional climate models.
