Abstract
Ambient concentrations of carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and total suspended particulates (TSP)
were measured from January 1997 to November 1998 in the center of downtown [the Income Tax Office (ITO) located on B.S.G. Marg] New
Delhi, India. The data consist of 24-h averages of SO2, NOx, and TSP as well as 8 and 24-h averages of CO. The measurements were made in
an effort to characterize air pollution in the urban environment of New Delhi and assist in the development of an air quality index. The yearly
average CO, NOx, SO2, and TSP concentrations for 1997 and 1998 were found to be 4810 2287 and 5772 2116 mg/m3
