Abstract

• Studied impact of COVID-19 lockdown phases on 14 air quality parameters. • Reduction in pollutants found to be associated with meteorology and emissions. • Increase in O3 concentration was linked with atmospheric reactivity. • Key emission sources identified were vehicles, stubble burning, and coal power plants. • VOCs variations shows association with regional emissions e.g., solid biomass burning.
