Analysis are presented of indoor/outdoor air pollution measurements in an office located in Haifa, Israel, and the influence of meteorology on the concentrations of measured indoor air quality parameters. Generalized Additive Models (GAMs) and Classification and Regression Trees (CARTs) were applied to examine temporal trends in concentrations of several pollutants, the impacts of meteorology on the concentrations, and to determine which parameters are most relevant to explaining the indoor concentrations of outdoor generated pollutants. Wind direction was found to have a significant influence on indoor concentrations of all the air pollutants, while temperature variation was linked to increased levels of PM10, NOx, NO2 and SO2. CART’s and GAMs explained the influence of the meteorological parameters, as well as computed the smooth, periodic annual trend.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
