Air Pollution

Synopsis

Every section of this new edition of Air Pollution has been updated, with particular emphasis on indoor air quality, and a new chapter on Air Pollution Control and Measurement of Industrial Emissions has been added. All references to standards and legislation have been updated in line with the new UK Air Quality Guidelines. Recommended reading lists have also been extended. This new edition continues to cover the wide range of air quality issues in an accessible style. Each topic has an historical introduction, covers the body of generally accepted information, and highlights areas in which developments are currently taking place. Topics covered include the sources and sinks of gaseous and particulate air pollutants, dispersion measurement, mobile sources, indoor air pollutants, and the effects on plants, materials, humans and animals. Local case-studies are referred to, demonstrating the application of theory to practice. Air Pollution is recommended for undergraduate and postgraduate level courses specialising in air pollution, whether from an environmental science or engineering perspective. It will also be of interest to air pollution specialists in consultancies and local authorities.
