A case study of poor visibility over Bombay airport
Keywords:visibility, moisture and pollution, high relative humidity
A case study of poor visibility on the morning of 4 March 1974 over Bombay Airport and its surroundings was made with reference to the moisture and pollution content in the atmosphere. It was observed that (i) high relative humidity alone was not sufficient to cause poor visibility. (ii) a steep and shallow inversion helped in causing poor visibility and (iii) the visibility was inversely proportional to the concentration of pollutants.
