Empirical Models for the Correlations Between Total Ozone Column and Latitude in different regions in IRAQ
النماذج الرياضية لعلاقات الارتباط بين طول عمود الأوزون وخط العرض في مناطق مختلفة من العراق
This Research aimed at find a correlation between Total Ozone Column (TOC) and Latitude in different regions in Iraq using several Mathematical Models.
Models were used for that [Linear Models, Quadratic Models, Exponential Models, Logarithmic Models, Power Models].
Several statistical tests [R2, R, MAE, RMSE] were used to control the validation and goodness of these Models. Quadratic Model gave the highest R2 among the other models in all stations. R2 obtained between (TOC) & Latitude in Winter & Spring months were very high and ranged between (0.953 – 0. 976). Summer months show a good correlation in June & July and week correlation in August. In Autumn months a good correlation was obtained in October & November and week correlation was obtained in September. The highest R2 means that there is a highly significance correlations between Total Ozone Column and Latitude. This mean that these Models gave a very good results to estimate (TOC) from Latitude.
