In UAE, environmental issues are considered as very crucial at all levels. This study attempts to analyze the current data available on the Ozone Layer in UAE via different data mining techniques. The study aims at giving a general idea about the Ozone Layer in UAE and generates some general rules that will help maintaining the future of Ground Ozone (O3) Level. Such understanding can support decision makers take action at the right time. The results produced from some well-known classification algorithm show that Sharjah has a sign of ‘Low Pollution’ in general. Also, the high temperature in summer may cause some problems in the reading which can be addressed in the near future.
