Abstract

In this paper we describe the evaluation of various climatic parameters in establishing their prognostic value in a photochemical smog episode. Our application was validated using real data from the “Cercul Militar National” and “Sos. Mihai Bravu nr. 47-49”, from April 2008 to May 2008. The study was performed on hour averages of pollutant concentrations and meteorological parameters and the statistical analysis was based on multiple regressions. We concluded by using mathematical and statistical methods, [1], that an accurate Global Solar Radiation is one of the most important and essential information in the pollution report.
