Abstract

Efficient inspection of data from pollution networks L.H. Auer, J.P. Mutschlecner Earth and Environmental Science Group, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamo, New Mexico, USA ABSTRACT. A package of tools for the rapid survey of data from a pollution monitoring net- work has been developed It has been designed to help in the recognition of regu- larities as well as peculiarities in a data set. Critical features are interactive user control, real-time graphic presentation in alternative formats, and simple modifica- tion of code to permit new options. The graphics used include movies of the spa- tial development, time-series, and scatter diagrams modulo the diurnal or weekly cycles. INTRODUCTION Data from a network of detectors are crucial to the investigation of the pollution in a region. Without such data it is impossible to study either the spatial or temporal variation in the concentrations. Unfortunately, the very thing that makes such data valuable makes their us
