The aim of this exploratory analysis is to find out how much of a factor does wind have on the spread of air pollution. By following common wind patterns, the analysis should show that there is a correlation between areas along the same wind direction. A strong correlation along the same wind pattern would prove:

Hypothesis: Wind patterns have a significant impact on the pollution levels in areas that the wind travels through.

Considering that there are other factors that dictate the pollution levels in an area, such as:

• Population
• Factory’s
• Building sizes
• Economy

I think it would be sufficient to have an alpha value of 0.1 when testing for significance.
