Satellite-retrieved aerosol optical depth essentially provides an economical option for regular monitoring of particulate matter (PM) concentration; however, the constrains and challenges come in terms of estimation accuracy. In the present study, we estimated PM2.5 and PM10 (PM of aerodynamic diameter lesser than 2.5, 10 µm, respectively) for 11 s...

BackgroundAmbient air pollution is becoming a serious environmental problem in China. The results were inconsistent on that air pollution was a risk factor of preeclampsia in pregnancy.MethodsTotal 116,042 pregnant women were enrolled from 22 hospitals in 10 cities of Hebei Province, China from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2017. The parturients ...

Background and Purpose Recently, fine particulate matter (PM2.5) was identified as the main exposure risk for COPD, and inflammation is central to the development of COPD. In this study, we investigated whether PM2.5 can induce the secretion of interleukin-6 (IL-6), IL-8 and IL-1β in human bronchial epithelial cells (HBECs) in vitro via the wingles...

• The lockdown policy triggered a sudden reduction of air pollution in Dhaka city. • The containment policy did not play a crucial role to modulate COVID-19 infection. • The air quality parameters can’t be explained as COVID-19 transmission modulator.

To study, compare and analyse the trend of allergic rhinitis incidence post COVID-19 pandemic in a tertiary care hospital in Patna Bihar. This is a retrospective observational study done at Patna medical college from January to June 2020. The number of patients with signs and symptoms of allergic rhinitis post pandemic (March–July2020) were compare...

More than 90% of the global population live in areas exceeding the PM2.5 air quality guidelines (AQGs). We provide an overview of the ambient PM2.5-related burden of disease (BoD) studies along with scenario analysis in the framework of the WHO AQG update on the estimated reduction in the BoD if AQGs were achieved globally. We reviewed the literatu...

Long-term aerosol optical thickness (AOT) composited data (2002–2017) derived from Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra and Aqua spacecraft was used to evaluate the temporal and spatial variability of aerosol in Xiamen city by using wavelet analysis, and the relationship between the surface mass concentrations of parti...

Human civilization has reached an unprecedented height, but the industrialization of economic development also brings global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, fresh water resources crisis, energy shortage, and environmental problems. In autumn and winter, haze becomes the usual state in the modern society, and PM2.5 has been becoming an importan...
