Daily air pollution time series analysis of Isfahan City
Different time series analysis of daily air pollution of Isfahan city were performed in this study. Descriptive analysis showed different long-term variation of daily air pollution. High persistence in daily air pollution time series were identified using autocorrelation function except for SO2 which seemed to be short memory. Standardized air pollution index (SAPI) time series were also calculated to compare fluctuation of different time series with different levels. SAPI time series indicated that NO and NO2, CH4 and non-CH4 have similar time fluctuations. The effects of weather condition and vehicle accumulation in Isfahan city in cold and warm seasons are also distinguished in SAPI plots.
