Meteorological and air pollution data were gathered at a clean air monitoring station near the West German village of Deuselbach. The meteorological data consisted of measurements in the following areas temperature, relative humidity, wind direction and speed, rainfall and UV radiation. Air pollution measurements of nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, total reactive nitrogen, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, ozone and total suspended particles were recorded as well. It is the intention of this thesis to examine thoroughly how each of these meteorological parameters either enhances or diminishes the levels of atmospheric pollutants. Additionally, the relationships among the pollutants will also be examined. This is a desired aspect since correlation among pollutants could point to a common source region.
