Abstract: From a temporal viewpoint, air pollution has significant daily patterns/cycles of behaviour. These cycles are conditioned by anthropogenic and natural phenomena. In both cases, a detailed observation and an understanding of the daily cycles rules or daily patterns of air pollution can be significant and at the same time can contribute to more effective measures to reduce the harmful impact of air pollution on human health. In this paper the new sunflower diagram is presented. The key advantage of the sunflower diagram is the ease of understanding the result and the ability to present information in the form of a graphic pattern, allowing the user to quickly understand the content. Using the sunflower diagram, we will present an analysis of the meteorological parameters that are important for understanding air pollution and air-pollution data for different locations in Slovenia.
