support from the satellite measurements, which is new today). This is also an ideal database to statistically forecast what will be the pollution levels in the next 3-4 days, knowing how the pollution levels behaved in the past under similar meteorological conditions. However, this database is not enough to explain the highs and lows, source contributions, and spatial patterns of pollution. In such a case, especially when lesser number of monitors are covering the urban airshed, forecasts based on multi-pollutant chemical transport modeling systems is a necessity.
