Abstract:  Under ISRO-GBP land campaign-I, the concentrations of CO and SO2 gases were simultaneously measured during 1-29 Feb. 2004 over southern India. These measurements were made onboard instrument vehicle along the road network during the dry, winter season of 2004. The study region covered coastal, industrial, urban, rural, remote, semi-arid and vegetated forest lands in the central part of the southern India. Average CO concentration at Nellore, an urban and coastal site is comparatively high (1300 ppbv) and the same is low (620 ppbv) at Sri Perumbuthur, a semi-urban site. These maximum levels of CO at Nellore may be due to traffic emissions and shallow surface layer. Average SO2 concentrations at Sri Perumbuthur and Shadnagar (5 ppbv) are significantly higher than those at other locations. Fairly good correlation has been established between CO, SO2 and meteorological parameters over the study region.
