MARIN RUSANESCU, CARMEN OTILIA RUSANESCU, GIGEL PARASCHIV ANALYSIS OF ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTANTS IN BUCHAREST IN CORRELATION WITH METEOROLOGICAL PARAMETERS In this paper we analyze the correlation between meteorological parameters (wind speed and direction, relative humidity, air temperature) and atmospheric pollutants in Bucharest during the cold period 26.02.2018-02.03.2018, which was based on the monitoring of the concentrations of nitrogen oxides, NO2, O3 and SO2 sulfur dioxide within 24 h and the occurrence of exceedances above the prescribed limit. It was found based on the results obtained that the wind direction influences not only the concentrations of pollutants but also the correlation between the pollutants. Traffic pollutants were at the highest concentration when the wind speed was low. We have found that the highest average concentration for NO2, NOx, NO, O3 occurred at 90% indicative humidity for vertical mixing of strong pollutants. Sulfur dioxide did not record exceeding over the limit standard in the analyzed period.
Keywords: urban environment, air pollution, NOx, NO, NO2, SO2, O3, air temperature, air humidity.
