Abstract

Though it is quite obvious that air pollution and its variability is heavily controlled by meteorological conditions not only on local but also on regio- nal scales still many problems related to this control remain to be solved, in particular for larger scales. This paper is addressing a few aspects of meteo- rological control focusing on questions resulting from considerations about regional budget estimates and forecasting of typical air pollutants like ozone and sulphur. Examples of effects related to meteorological phenomena like fronts and Ekman pumping are discussed. 1 Introduction Concentration fields of air
