Abstract

The weather elements, such as air temperature, dew point temperature, and relative humidity, are important indicators of moisture in the air. The changes in these elements lead to various environmental and health impacts. Severe air pollution episodes also happen due to these changes, which enhance risk of disaster.  A research study was conducted to determine the linkage between dew point temperature and relative humidity in Delhi for the year 2016. The results showed that the relationship between dew point temperature and relative humidity was linear, and a significant correlation (R2=0.77) was confirmed between both weather elements during the study period. Knowledge of such elements and other atmospheric processes is helpful in weather forecasting
