NASA Captures Stubble Plumes Flowing To Delhi As City Chokes With Pollution

NASA captured satellite images depicting stubble plumes flowing towards the national capital. The images by the US space agency show a massive smoke cloud resulting from the burnt stubble in Punjab, Haryana & Pakistan approaching the city.

Delhi battles severe pollution every year. The citizens choke on hazardous air, partly caused by stubble burning too. Few days ago, NASA captured satellite images depicting stubble plumes flowing towards the national capital. The images by the US space agency show a massive smoke cloud resulting from the burnt stubble in Punjab, Haryana & Pakistan approaching the city. 

NASA also highlighted that this year’s prolonged monsoon spell helped in controlling the rise in pollution levels during the start of November. However, since November 11, there has been an increase in stubble burning activities. The VIIRS has recorded over 74,000 fire hotspots in Punjab till November 16

The air quality in Delhi slipped to the “very poor” category on Thursday, according to System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR). Meanwhile, Delhi’s environment minister Gopal Rai has announced that schools, colleges and educational institutions in the city will re-open from November 29.
