Air pollution at Rayong ?

Wind statistics for 8 years from this link.

The east coast tends to favor W-SW winds. Hence Pattaya, the "west wind". Thai place names always mean something.

For what it's worth, I've flown along the east coast from Bangkok down to Satthahip. A continuous blanket of yellow-brown pollution all the way. Discouraging for clean air enthusiasts.

If you don't understand the meaning of 'monsoon' - a seasonal wind - perhaps you have a comprehension problem.

"Because winds are named for the direction from which the wind is blowing, these winds are called the northeasterly trade winds in the Northern Hemisphere and the southeasterly trade winds in the Southern Hemisphere. The trade winds of both hemispheres meet at the doldrums."

Nice try and no need for the ad hominem attack!  In the geographical area you mention, these are not trade winds at all ...but monsoon generated winds (southwest for roughly 9 months and Northeast for roughly two.)  To paraphrase your link, "Because winds are named for the direction from which the wind is blowing,"...therefore the winds from the southwest are called southwest winds........If these were southeast winds as you say, they would be blowing offshore! I hope this wasn't too complicated for you. A bit of homework for you before you come back and post again, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monsoon

- from Pattaya, maybe, but still pretty much onshore round the corner in Rayong.

I didn't say there is. The wind from any southerly quarter is going to blow whatever emanates from the Maptaphut industrial area away from the beaches and towns near them. And the north-easterly wind which kicks in after the next week or two will blow it all out to sea.

Study done by Bangkok Hospital confirms this!

You refer to a study. So it would be a good practise to also add link to this study so that everybody can check this!

Ban Chang area, west of Maptaput,  ( Rayong is east ) 95% or more of the time has the wind blowing from Ban Chang through Maptaphut in the Rayong direction.

On a few days a year it does come the other way and you get a whiff of Maptaphut but it doesn't last more than a day at a time.

So most of the time it's coming from the south west and heading north east.

The Beach......with the south east winds blowing any pollution that Map Ta Phut has to offer inland. Study done by Bangkok Hospital confirms this!

@Wim1954

I only refer to post #2. It has nothing to do with a weatherstation! Nowadays in times of fake news people claim so much without stating a source... ?
