Short summary
This study applies numerical clustering for the classification of about 1500 ozone data sets in Europe. We show the usefulness of cluster analysis (CA) for the quantitative evaluation of a global model: pre-selection of stations and validation of a global model in a phase-space produce clearer and more interpretable results. CA can be easily updated for new stations, different length of data, and other type of input properties, as well as other type of data (for example, meteorological).
