This is because these were associated with low-level night-time inversions, high radiation inputs conducive to photochemical activity and airflows from photochemical precursor regions to the north. Conversely, Gulf Return and Frontal Gulf Return types, which also occurred roughly onethird of the time, produced better air quality due to their greater overnight mixing heights, strong horizontal dispersion from the southwest to southeast and low radiation receipts due to daytime cloud cover. Based on their findings Muller and Jackson (1985) recommended a southwest to southeast location for industries producing noxious atmospheric effluent.
1988). Regarding respiratory tract related responses, McGregor et al. (1999) have shown for winter in the Birmingham area, UK, that two general weather modes are associated with high respiratory hospital admission rates. One is a cool moist mode associated with either northwesterly flows off the North Atlantic or anticyclonic gloom conditions with little airflow. Unlike the former synoptic-scale situation, the latter is associated with high particulate matter concentrations, suggesting that this particular weather and air quality situation may precipitate a distinct health response due to weather-air pollution interactions.
T is inversion top, B is inversion base. When B is at ground level this is a groundbased inversion. When B is above the ground the inversion is an elevated one. Subsidence warming usually occurs over a wide area within anticyclonic or high-pressure systems. Subsidence inversions are a notable feature of the climate of locations lying under the influence of the semipermanant subtropical anticyclones. Many of the pollution problems of subtropical locations such as Los Angeles, Mexico City, Shanghai and Johannesburg relate to such a climate setting, i n the mid-latitudes where the weather systems are more migratory than the subtropics, travelling anticyclones can stall and persist for periods for up to 2-3 weeks owing to changes in the upper air circulation.
