تقدير الاوزون فوق المملكة العربية السعودية
Document Language : English 
Abstract : In this paper the relationships between total ozone amount and meteorological variables have been deduced for each station of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Residual method has been applied to estimate total ozone values using the meteorological variables. An emperical equations relating the total ozone amount with these variables have been deduced for KSA stations. Residual method has been applied also to deduced emperical equations relating the total ozone with tropopause pressure, tropopause temperature and the thickness of atmospheric layers. Very good correlation coefficient (0.8) between the actual and estimated values of ozone for the middle and southern stations of KSA have been found. It is found that the results at southern stations are better than those at the middle and north of KSA. The obtained good relations make us able to estimate and forecast ozone amount whether there are meteorological stations or not, by using numerical weather prediction models outputs.
