CERTIFICATE

This is to certify that the thesis entitled

;NUMERICAL MODELS FOR POLLUTANT DISPERSION IN THE ATMOSPHERE"

being submitted by SWATI BASU for the award of the degree of DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHYi is a record of the original bonafide research work carried out by her. She has worked under our

joint guidance and supervision and has fulfilled the require merits for the submission of this thesis. The results presented in this thesis have not been submitted in part or full to any other University or Institute for award of any degree/diploma.
