Abstract

The aim of this study is twofold: First, to gain perspective for the assessment of the spatial distribution of one of the air pollutants, sulfur dioxide, in the region by the use of a statistical modelling scheme, kriging; and second, to show the decrease of sulfur dioxide concentrations over İstanbul by elaborating on the reasons of this decrease in terms of the meteorological factors.
