Abstract

A statistical analysis applied to a study of atmospheric pollution by SO^ and particles in the conurbation of Castellon and its relation to local meteorological parameters A. Boix,* J. Mateu,*) M.M.

In doing so, a small network of sampling sites was established, allowing the measurement of sulphur dioxide and particles in four parts of the city. Measurements were taken every 24 hours over a period of 1 year. Running parallel to this, daily data relating to average temperature, speed and direction of wind was obtained. This infor
