Cluster analysis and trend line comparison were used to investigate the trend of circadian changes in tropospheric ozone in Isfahan. First, we categorized similar changing patterns in the statistical period using cluster analysis. In this regard, circadian changes of ozone were divided into four groups (daily maximum, night minimum, daily increase trend, night decrease trend). Validity of these categories was tested using ANOVA. In this way, assigning 646 days (88.3 percent) to the aforementioned category was confirmed in 95 percent confidence level. In Lale station, 94.6 percent of days in each year followed daily increase and night decrease trends. Moreover, investigating mean trend lines and seasonal and annual limits shows that ozone possesses a regular trend in circadian changes. This regularity is more apparent in Lale station.
