Sanchez-Mesa, J.A. and Smith, Matthew and Emberlin, Jean and Allitt, U. and Caulton, E. and Galan, C. (2003) Characteristics of Grass Pollen Seasons in Areas of Southern Spain and the United Kingdom.

Spatial and temporal variations in daily grass pollen counts and weather variables are described for two regions with different bio-geographical and climatic regimes, southern Spain and the United Kingdom. Daily average grass pollen counts are considered from six pollen-monitoring sites, three in southern Spain (Ciudad Real, Córdoba and Priego) and three in the United Kingdom (Edinburgh, Worcester and Cambridge). Analysis shows that rainfall and maximum temperatures are important factors controlling the magnitude of the grass pollen season in both southern Spain and the United Kingdom, and that the strength and direction of the influence exerted by these variables varies with geographical location and time.
