An objective, statistical synoptic weather map classification scheme developed by Lund to stratify map patterns for further study was used to type regional weather patterns. The investigation extended over a 500-mile radius of the greater St. Louis area and was intended for subsequent application to air pollution studies. This analysis correlated sea level pressure data at 21 selected National Weather Service stations at a specified time on a given day, with sea level pressures for these same stations on each of the other days in the four-year period 1973 through 1976. To illustrate the potential usefulness of this method to air quality and synoptic weather relationships, a preliminary comparison of the weather typing system to suspended particles and carbon monoxide concentrations was also made.
