Abstract

Geostatistical analysis of spatial and temporal ozone immission structures H. Hoffmann Graduate School of Spatial Statistics, Freiberg University of Mining and Technology, Germany Abstract This paper reports on statistical analysis of ozone data based on half-hour averages for the years 1995 to 1999 at 32 Saxonian monitoring sites. These sites are irregularly distributed, concentrated in areas which are strongly loaded with respect to primary pollutants, in the cities and along the mountain range along the Czech-German boundary (Ore Mountains). In the given case spatial interpolation is rather difficult because of the heterogeneity of the monitoring network. This concerns both the spatial distribution of the sites as well as their representativeness, which differs heavily for city stations, outskirts stations and rural stations. The difficulties with ozone statistics result from the fact that originally the monitoring network was constructed to observe maximum c
