The recent rapid increase in domestic fine dust(PM10) has a great impact on daily life and public health. The problem of determining the cause of and predicting about PM10 has been carried out by many researchers, but has not been able to present a clear solution. In this study, various methods of penalized regression using meteorological and environmental factors as predictors were proposed for the prediction of PM10. In particular, in this study, information of weather and environment-related predictors up to 15 days ago was used. The problem of multicollinearity arises between the predictors at the previous point in time. As a solution to this, in this paper, the method of penalized regression is applied. Lasso, adaptive lasso, SCAD and MCP were applied as the penalty regression, and data from Seoul city were used for analysis.
