Type

Use this drop-down menu to select the way you want your data conditioned. The default option will produce a single plot covering the entire range of the data. Selecting 'Hour' will produce an individual plot for each of the 24 hours throughout the day and so helps to represent diurnal differences. Selecting 'Weekday' will produce an individual plot for each day of the week and so is helpful in highlighting differences throughout the working week and weekends. Selecting 'Season' will split the plot into proper seasons showing the trend within seasons. Selecting 'Wind Direction' will split the trend plots into eight compass point sectors using the modelled wind direction from the UK air quality forecast.

Deseasonalise

Checking this option will amend the plot to account for statistically calculated seasonal variation. If this option is not selected, then a single plot of the original data will be plotted.
