It is now a current trend for scientists engaged in studies connected with atmospheric pollution to try to link closer and closer the respective knowledges in the conventional pollution and in the meteorology research domains. For a great number of problems, this is widely due to the very strong relationship between thermodynamic properties of the atmosphere and the physicochemical behaviour of atmospheric pollutants.
