Influence of circulation types on the SO2 concentration in the Silesian Upland
Languages of publication
It is well known that the area of investigation is the most densely populated region in Poland, and air is one of the most important environmental elements determining the quality of human life. In spite of the improvement in the aero-sanitary conditions in recent years, the situation in this region is still unfavorable. Although less frequent, there are cases of exceeded air pollution norms, daily norms in particular, which is especially visible in the winter season. The detailed evaluation of the influence of circulation types on the appearance of particular concentrations of pollutants carried out in this work confirmed the predominant influence of individual circulation types - synthetic measures of atmospheric circulation - on the development of air pollution levels in the Silesian Upland. Daily immission data and three calendars of circulation types allowed the authors to present mutual relations between the considered variables in detail.
