ABSTRACT. An analysis of PM2.5 related air pollution in Ploiesti city. The paper presents an analysis of PM2.5 related air pollution in Ploiesti city, based on datasets with measurements of PM2.5 concentration and some meteorological variables at PH-2 monitoring station, taken from the RNMCA public site (www.calitateaer.ro) and AirBase, and the dataset with in situ measurements of PM2.5 concentration and some meteorological variables acquired through the ROKIDAIR project monitoring campaigns run during the period August 2014 November 2016, in the Ploiesti city. PM2.5 most correlated meteorological variables are highlighted and the Ploiesti city map with seasonal PM2.5 air pollution distribution is provided. The paper experiments highlight that the PM2.5 concentration evolution analysis must be done taking into consideration the other atmospheric and seasonal parameters, in order to obtain the most appropriate results.

Keywords: air pollution analysis, PM2.5 air pollution episodes, meteorological parameters correlation.
