    Abstract

    The Mexico City Metropolitan Area (MCMA) is located in a U shape valley at the foothills of the Anahuac cordilleras. Because of its geographical location, among other factors, the MCMA suffers from severe pollution problems. Ozone and PM 10 are two of the most dangerous pollutants. Trends of both pollutants are examined for the period 1994-96 and the relation with some of their associated pollutants is analyzed. The results show that the concentration of PM 10 has increased in the three years and that the ozone concentrations have decreased slightly over the same period. Furthermore, meteorological parameters are incorporated into the analyses to help explain some of the deviations within the time series.
