Abstract

The triatomic oxygen, high in the atmosphere reconstructs itself and converts it into ozone (O). In lower atmosphere Oact as a secondary pollutant, which depends on regional topography and climate. The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) designated India into four seasons: winter, summer, monsoon and autumn. The seasonal study of Jabalpur shows higher O concentration in autumn (62ppb) and winter (59ppb) of the year 2013 and 2014 respectively. The concentration of O correlates with meteorological parameters like temperature and relative humidity (RH). In the year 2013, O shown negative correlation with both temperature and RH (r= -0.5163 and -0.1729) respectively. Similarly in the year 2014, Oshown negative correlation with temperature and RH (r= -0.3597 and -0.3880) respectively, though their fluctuation may vary with each other.
