Introduction

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change decided to launch a project on “Carbonaceous Aerosol Emissions, Source Apportionment and Climate Impacts” under the National Carbonaceous Aerosols Programme. The NCAP-COALESCE project (CarbOnaceous AerosoL Emissions, Source apportionment and ClimatE Impacts), is a constituent activity of the Climate Change Action Programme of the country. It is envisaged as a multi-institutional, coordinated project, with the following goals:

  1. To understand the sources, fate, and impacts of carbonaceous aerosols, on climate and air quality, in the Indian region through interdisciplinary research.
  2. To reduce uncertainties in our understanding of the impacts of carbonaceous aerosols on regional scales over India through the adoption of robust methodologies.
  3. To inform the scientific community, policy makers and the public regarding carbonaceous aerosol influence on climate change and climate stresses, and their implications.
  4. To promote training and learning about aspects of aerosol measurement and modelling through workshops on research methods.
