Trends in atmospheric pollution in the Third Pole: Analyses of tropospheric NO2 for the period 2005–2020
Third Pole (TP) is one of the remote and pristine regions on the earth that encompasses the Hindukush Himalaya (HKH) and Tien Shan Mountains.
we examine the tropospheric NO2 column to assess the evolution of atmospheric pollution during the period 2005–2020 in TP
We find an increasing trend in NO2 ; suggesting a declining air quality in and around TP.
The study unveils the atmospheric composition change in one of the pristine regions on the earth, which is a serious concern.
