Particulate Matter concentrations were analyzed from Ganjam district of Odisha during January December, 2010.The average concentration of PM10 in sand mining area at 1 and 4 metre height were observed to be 56.62.2 and 34.05.0 g.m-3respectively.The seasonal variation of SPM and PM10 levels at study sites are visible in the order of winter &
