The characteristics of aerosol black carbon (BC) were studied at two different climatic regimes, i.e. Delhi and Manora Peak during winter and spring of 2007. Spring BC was found to be similar to 59% lower at Delhi and similar to 23% higher at Manora Peak than their corresponding winter BC. Diurnal BC variation showed two enhanced peaks at Delhi (morning and night) whereas a single late afternoon peak at Manora Peak. Delhi BC showed a clear correlation with prevailing winds whereas no correlation was observed at Manora Peak. The major contribution of BC at Manora Peak can be expected from biomass burning while at Delhi fossil fuel dominates.
