In the present study, relationship between monitored air pollutant concentrations such as SO2 and the total suspended particles (TSP) data and meteorological factors such as wind speed, temperature, relative humidity and atmospheric pressure was investigated in months of October, November, December, January, February, and March during the period of three years (2003, 2004 and 2005) for Elazg city. According to the results of linear and non-linear regression analysis, it was found that there is a moderate and weak level of relation between the air pollutant concentrations and the meteorological factors in Elazg city.
