Air Contaminant Books

  • 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. ...

  • Occupational Exposure Assessment for Air Contaminants

    Over the last three decades, significant progress has been made not only in the technology of measuring air contaminants but also in the statistical descriptions of exposure distributions and exposure assessment strategies. Occupational Exposures for Air Contaminants addresses the various aspects of occupational exposure assessment for air ...

  • Indoor Air Quality Engineering

    Engineers are increasingly faced with indoor air quality issues, particularly in the design of ventilation and filtration systems and airborne contaminant removal. Because this specialty has only recently gained momentum, resources have been limited to scattered research papers on this topic, until ...

  • Air Quality, 4th Edition

    Ozone-destroying chemicals, greenhouse gases, and dangerous airborne substances that were once thought to be benign are the most urgent issues facing air pollution control experts. Students need a thorough, updated reference that explores these current trends while also covering the fundamental concepts of this emerging ...

  • Biomarkers of Environmentally Associated Disease: Technologies, Concepts, and Perspectives

    The end of the 20th century brought with it a revolution in molecular biology that culminated in advances such as the completion of the human genome. This has brought optimism to the fields of toxicology and environmental health, and the anticipation that molecular biomarkers might soon come of age and have a major impact on human and ...

  • Air Pollution Control Technology Handbook

    In the debate over pollution control, the price of pollution is a key issue. But which is more costly: clean up or prevention? From regulations to technology selection to equipment design, Air Pollution Control Technology Handbook serves as a single source of information on commonly used air pollution control technology. It covers environmental ...

  • Arctic Legal Regime for Environmental Protection

    For many years, concerns have been expressed about environmental issues in the Arctic. While the Arctic region, unlike Antarctica, has been inhabited for thousands of years, it is under unique threat because of its vulnerability toward resource exploitation and the deposition of various airborne pollutants. With its varied populations, and with ...

  • Air Pollution and Health

    The impact of air pollution on human health is currently of international concern. A comprehensive review of the subject is given in this volume, which complements the previous title covering air quality management. Dealing with the common gaseous and particulate air pollutants, including chemical carcinogens, it reviews the epidemiological and ...

  • Laser in Environmental and Life Sciences

    This comprehensive reference work illustrates the state of the art of laser-induced analytical methods in environmental and life sciences via an interdisciplinary approach. Techniques of remote sensing in the atmosphere as well as diagnostic methods for soil, water and air contamination and exhaled breath are described. Each a prominent scientist, ...

  • Roundtable Report: Smart Growth in Small Towns and Rural Communities: Maryland"s Eastern Shore

    The Chesapeake Bay region has experienced significant growth during the past 30 years and continues to grow at a rapid rate. The population of the region increased 26 percent between 1970 and 1994 and is now expected to increase by an additional 3 million people by the year 2020. The resulting demand for new development, often low-density and ...

  • Indoor Air Report: Breathe Easy (Video)

    Indoor air quality has become an increasingly stormy health issue, but if you know with the facts, you need not be blown away. OSHA estimates that approximately 21 million employees are exposed to IAQ problems. Sniff out the the facts of the issue and help your employees understand the factors that affect air quality -- and more importantly -- how ...

  • Pollutants from Combustion Formation and Impact on Atmospheric Chemistry

    The preservation of the environment is of increasing concern at all scales, from individual countries through continents to the entire planet. Combustion is known to contribute substantially to damage to the atmosphere and therefore this book reviews current knowledge of the mechanisms by which the main pollutants are formed in combustion ...
