His research papers report ...

  • Integrating environment and development in Viet Nam: Achievements, challenges and next steps

    Development and environmental management have, for too long, been treated as separate objectives in Viet Nam – as in most countries. Viet Nam’s extraordinarily rapid development has brought immediate and major benefits. But it has also led to poor people suffering pollution, climate change and soil infertility. It is time for development and ...

New topics include green chemistry and engineering, pollution prevention, global climate change, and more. The author discusses the applications of ...

  • Air Quality in Urban Environments

    Urban air quality is a topic which remains high on the scientific and political agenda. Concentrations of most air pollutants are higher in urban areas than in the surrounding rural regions, and given the high population densities, it is within urban areas that the majority of the population receive their air pollutant exposure. Despite the ...

  • The Science of Air: Concepts and Applications, Second Edition

    This one-of-a-kind, completely revised volume presents the latest research on global climate change, air pollution, radon, indoor air quality, acid rain, and more. The second edition of a bestseller, this work explores common themes of air resource utilization and air protection with a section on air pollution and remediation. It contains ...

  • Coast-Valley Air Pollution

    This book focuses on air pollution modeling in coast-valley environments. This includes the assessment of airborne pollutant emissions, transport, and depletion and the related chemistry. Modeling the coast-valley environments is characterized by a high level of complexity due to the concurrent presence of complex orography and land-sea interface. ...

  • Air Pollution XVI

    Air pollution is one of the most challenging problems facing the international community; it is widespread and growing in importance and has clear and known impacts on health and the environment. The human need for transport, manufactured goods and services brings with it impacts on the atmospheric environment at scales from the local to the ...

  • Large-Scale Disasters: Prediction, Control, and Mitigation

    This volume presents an integrated review of the broad research field of large-scale disasters. It establishes a common framework for predicting, controlling and managing both manmade and natural disasters. There is a particular focus on events caused by weather and climate change. Other topics include air pollution, tsunamis, disaster modeling, ...

  • In Dead Water

    The new rapid response report entitled In Dead Water has for the first time mapped the multiple and combined impacts of pollution; alien infestations; over-exploitation and climate change on the seas and oceans. The worst concentration of the cumulative impacts of climate change, coastal development and pollution appear to be concentrated in ...

  • Chemistry for Environmental and Earth Sciences

    Tackling environmental issues such as global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, water pollution, and soil contamination requires an understanding of the underlying science and chemistry of these processes in real-world systems and situations. Chemistry for Environmental and Earth Sciences provides a student-friendly introduction to the basic ...

It covers the topic areas of Air pollution modelling; Air quality management; Emission studies; Monitoring and laboratory studies; ...

  • Biodiversity Under Threat

    There is much public concern about threats to global biodiversity. Industrial pollution, changes in agricultural practices and climate change, are all having a direct impact on biodiversity.In this book the Editors provide a broad view of the many pressures imposed by human-induced changes and the many threats to global biodiversity and of the ...

  • Our Precious Coasts : Marine Pollution, Climate Change and the Resilience of Coastal Ecosystems

    The ability of coral reefs to survive in a globally-warming world may crucially depend on the levels of pollution to which they are exposed, new findings indicate.Scientists studying reefs that were bleached in the late 1990s by high surface sea temperatures have found a link between recovery rates and the levels of contamination entering coastal ...
