Empirical methods have found limited application in air quality and meteorological analyses, largely because of a lack of good data and the large number of variables in most applications. More and better data, along with advances in methodology, have broadened the applicability of empirical approaches. This report illustrates the types of problems for which creative empirical approaches have the potential for significant contributions. The results of two pilot projects are reported in some detail.
