Winddirection and pollenpressure

Are winddirection, pollenconcentration and pollenpressure correlated? It very much depends on your location. This graph shows that for the Netherlands a south-east wind is less favourable, as it can bring pollen from Germany and Belgium. When you live on a small island like Helgaland, every winddirection is favourable. Besides winddirection also windspeed is correlated.

Rain and pollenconcentration

Are rain and pollenconcentrations correlated? There seems little doubt about that. Rain can wash the air clean from pollen. This graph shows the correlation between the average complainlevel (purple) and rainfall (blue) during two months. The rainfall seems to press down the complainlevel. On the other hand a short rain shower, can trigger pollenrelease by […]
