Air pollution is a major problem of many countries around the world. The main source of the air pollution due to growing urbanization, growth of the industry, vehicles etc. In this research produce an empirical model using Landsat 8 satellite data and ground PM 10 measurement for determination of particulate matter (PM 10) concentration in the atmosphere over Dehradun city, the capital of Uttarakhand . The research focus on air pollution determination using atmospheric reflectance (DOS method) and correlate to PM 10 ground measurement. The outcomes of this research showed that visible bands of Landsat 8 OLI were capable of calculating PM10 concentration to an acceptable level of accuracy.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
