Meteorological conditions have a critical impact on the formation, transport and deposition of O3. The paper utilizes a two-stage clustering approach as part of an objective classification scheme designed to elucidate O3's dependence on meteorology. When applied to ten years (1981-1990) of meteorological data for Birmingham, Alabama, the classification scheme identified seven statistically distinct meteorological regimes.
