This paper presents an attempt to model the trend of emissions through analysis of a time series of PM10 concentrations in Christchurch, New Zealand. Emissions are not constant over time, but show high seasonality. Fluctuations are removed by creating a time series in which concentrations do not show dependency on ambient air temperature. Remaining meteorological influences are removed through multiple linear regression. Finally, a moving average filter is applied to reveal the low-frequency trend in the residuals of the meteorologically adjusted time series. The modelled trend shows a peak in emissions in 2001-2002 with a steady decrease thereafter.

Moisture Transport during Large Snowfall Events in the New Zealand Southern Alps: The Role of Atmospheric Rivers Porhemmat R; Zawar-Reza P; Zammit C; Kerr T; Purdie, Heather (American Meteorological Society, 2021)Synoptic-scale moisture transport during large snowfall events in the New Zealand Southern Alps is largely unknown due to a lack of long-term snow observations. In this study, records from three recently developed automatic ...
