  • Abstract

    The present study focused on the comparative analysis of ambient air quality status of Ahmedabad city and Gandhinagar city in Gujarath, India. Both the cities have been studied on the basis of land use pattern and meteorological condition. While selecting the monitoring stations, it has been kept in mind that monitoring stations should represent the background of residential, commercial (industrial) and sensitive areas. Further, the data is interpreted in the form of general patterns, average values and trends of wind direction and the seasonal variations under the influence of varying weather conditions. After comparing it with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), the Ambient Air Quality was then interpreted in results and discussion.
