India: A study by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has found that the effect of stubble burning in northern India is felt as far as the Arabian Sea. The study examined aerosol properties, smoke plume characteristics, long-range transport, and affected areas during paddy harvest period over the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) using ground-based and satellite observations. Smoke plumes contain carbon aerosols that play a vital role in determining atmospheric chemistry, and affect air quality, ecosystem and human health.
