1- Multi-scale time dependent correlation between synchronous measurements of ground-level ozone and meteorological parameters in the Caribbean Basin [Plocoste et al (2019)]

Ground-level ozone (O₃) is a major secondary air pollutant strongly related to weather conditions. It is therefore crucial to improve the understanding of the variations of O₃ according to climatic conditions. In partnership with the University of the West Indies, the KaruSphère laboratory carried out a study of local correlations between O₃ and meteorological conditions (solar radiation, temperature, relative humidity and wind speed) using an innovative correlation method multi-scale cross. The impact of meteorological conditions (drought, precipitation, windy period) was locally observed on the formation of O₃ for all time scales studied.
