Mahender Singh, Vishaw Vikas, Rohit Sharma

An analysis was done to evaluate the change in Carbon dioxide level due to the implementation of weekend lockdown restrictions. The data was analyzed through Descriptive Statistics and Pearson Correlation using SPSS 16.0. Through the analysis, it was observed that the deviation in Carbon dioxide levels during 1st weekend of lockdown compared to weekdays was -2.41% and during 2nd week, the deviation between weekends to weekdays was -1.90%. Also, graphical analysis depicted that during the enforcement of restrictions in 1st week; the values of CO2 level in atmosphere went below 405 ppm, however during weekdays it surged to >420 ppm. Again in 2nd week, the CO2 levels were below than weekdays but slightly above 1st weekend lockdown values. Thus, the consistently dropping pattern noticed in CO2 levels describes weekend lockdown an effective solution to curb the pace of emissions.
