In this study, Taguchi L8 orthogonal array design was applied to determine the most polluted meteorological conditions in Kocaeli. Meteorological factors were decided as temperature, relative humidity and rainfall in two different levels. Larger is better function was applied for calculation of signal-to-noise ratios. The impact ratios of meteorological factors were also determined by using Taguchi model. PM10 concentrations were predicted by the model. Results of the model showed that predicted and obtained concentrations were closer to each other. These calculations and results show the success of Taguchi model in this study.
