1/ Interesting paper showing high efficacy of portable HEPA #filtration to reduce aerosol concentration in a high school classroom during use.

By very experienced German aerosol group Curtius et al.; via @ASTJournal.

With short🧵on room air filtration.

2/ "In times when classes were conducted with windows and door closed, the aerosol concentration was reduced by more than 90% within less than 30 min. when running the purifiers (air exchange rate 5.5 ACH). The reduction was homogeneous throughout the room ..."

Short Thread - Not farmers but water management causes cropfires

Public Health Emergency declared in #Delhi due to #AirPollution

It's not just Delhi but many parts of #NorthIndia are affected by it as shown by Himawari Satellite

#DelhiAirQuality #DelhiChokes #DelhiPollution
Like always Air Pollution becomes a topic of discussion when Delhi is facing it during crop fire season and it's eventually forgotten. Interestingly people also search for #AirPurifiers when #AirPollution also trends as shown in Google Search Trends Image
Along with private transport, industrial (including construction), power plants, Crop fires also play an important role in Delhi's pollution spikes.

Animation shows crop fires in #Punjab, #Haryana this season (VIIRS Data)

But are farmers to blame?
