Sažetak
The study of the time series from the township of Campo Grande in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul (from January 2004 to 31 December 2010) is presented. Various statistical methods were used for the data analysis. Using robust statistics, very pronounced skewness of the ozone volume part distribution during each month of the year was obtained. The variability in data is the largest during a month of September. The average annual values have asymmetrical distribution of the ozone volume fraction. Within the measured period, these averages are between 15 and 20 ppb. Particularly pronounced ozone distribution asymmetry throughout the year 2007 could be explained by observing meteorological parameters. Principal component analysis (PCA) presented here clearly shows that air temperature and wind speed are contributing factors in ozone formation, while relative humidity and atmospheric pressure cause the decrease in the ozone volume fraction in the air. Further, the hierarchical cluster analysis (CA) was performed for meteorological and ozone data using the Ward’s methods. The correlation between ozone and the effective temperature index (TEv) showed a development of the ozone with high temperature of air. From the Pearson’s correlation coefficients, it is clear that the relative humidity and the air temperature have a negative effect on respiratory system, causing respiratory illnesses.
