Air pollution field structure in the industrial city’s atmosphere: New data on stochasticity and chaos effects

Authors: Yu.Ya. Bunyakova

Issue: 15

Pages: 22-26


An improved theoretical scheme for sensing temporal and spatial structure of the air pollution fields in the industrial city’s atmosphere is considered and applied to an analysis of the Odessa atmosphere aerosol component data. Effects of stochasticity and chaotic features in the dusty air pollution field structure are discovered on the basis of the correlation dimension approach to empirical data.
