Abstract
A circulation-type classification is derived for the 1983-2012 climatic period to characterize air quality dynamics over the Iberian Peninsula (IP). Sensitivity tests to automatic classification techniques and other factors affecting the classification (number of patterns, temporal and spatial resolution, domain size, etc.) are performed to objectivize the set-up that maximizes its quality. The ERA-Interim reanalysis and the cost733class classification software are used. The identified circulati...
