Meteorology is one of the factors that plays an important role in assessing the quality of the atmospheric environment. Regarding the air pollution, especially dust and gaseous emissions, there are currently few studies on the relationship between meteorological factors and the increase in pollutant concentration. In this study, the relationship between several meteorological parameters such as temperature (TEM), wind speed (WS), wind direction (WD) and PM10 content in Hanoi were evaluated through the Spearman correlation coefficient (r) by SPSS statistical analysis software. Data includes hourly meteorological factors (temperature, wind speed and wind direction) and 24-h PM10 concentration collected at three automatic air quality monitoring stations in Hanoi in 2018. In addition, HYSPLIT model is used to determine the influence of wind direction and contribution of air pollution sources. The results show a negative correlation (r <0) between PM10 content, temperature and wind speed in dry and rainy seasons. During the dry season, Hanoi has a higher PM10 content than the remaining months of the year. This might be partly affected by outside pollution sources from the North and Northwest. The findings emphasize the dependence of air quality on local meteorological conditions and the distribution of major
