ANALYZING THE LEVEL OF HIGH TROPOSPHERC OZONE DURING THE SUMMER 2014 and 2015 IN SKOPJE, R.MACEDONIA
Ozone is health-hazardous air pollutant and his level in the living environment is very important to be tracked and understand. This specific gas in nowadays occurs as byproduct of certain human activities, especially with car pollution and naturally due to increased temperature. Therefore, it is important to understand the relationship between this variable. The focus of this paper is to model this relationship, with data collected for period of 3 months in 2014 and 2015(summer period). According to the models obtained with machine learning methods, high level concentrations of ozone was found if temperature of the air is higher than 30.15oC and concentrations of NO2 are lower than 16.93 mg/m3(in 2013). Encourage by this model, in this paper we go further and extend our research to include more data (from 2014 and 2015) and different methods to find other influencing factors that contributes to high concentration of ozone.
