Time series of atmospheric pollutants (, CO and ) have been analyzed and the possible presence of low-dimensional chaos has been checked. The analysis has been performed by exploiting the concept of short-term predictability of chaotic systems. Although the time series exhibit statistical characteristics which mimic those typically explained by complex systems, no sign of chaos has been evidenced.
