dc.description.abstract The “Atmospheric brown cloud,” in Bhutan is worse in winter when there is less rain to wash pollution from the air, and is likely caused by a number of sources: coal-fueled power plants in India and China, particles from burning wood and forest fires, vehicle emissions, and factories. Transboundary air pollution is a growing concern, and a monitoring station has been established at Gelephu with plans to set up additional stations in strategic locations around the country. The article is based on information from the Samdrup Jongkhar Initiative, adapted from a longer article. en
