air pollution survey Books

  • Industrial Air Pollution Monitoring

    Developed from a short course taught at Leeds University, this book covers methods of monitoring emissions of air pollutants from stationary sources. It surveys the techniques and points out their advantages and disadvantages. ...

  • Air Pollution Control Engineering

    A panel of respected air pollution control educators and practicing professionals critically survey the both principles and practices underlying control processes, and illustrate these with a host of detailed design examples for practicing engineers. The authors discuss the performance, potential, and limitations of the major control ...

  • Hazardous Air Pollutant Handbook: Measurements, Properties, and Fate in Ambient Air

    Hazardous Air Pollutant Handbook: Measurements, Properties, and Fate in Ambient Air provides a comprehensive review of the 188 compounds and compound classes designated as Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) by the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, with a specific focus on their potential presence in ambient air. The relevant chemical and physical ...

  • Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality in Hospitals

    The contents of Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality in Hospitals are arranged in six main sections. The first section deals with the major issues related to indoor air quality in hospitals, reviewed from North American, Scandinavian, Italian and Russian perspectives. The second section discusses the ventilation requirements in hospitals, ...

  • Physicochemical Treatment Processes

    A critical survey of both the principles and practices involved in water pollution control, potable water treatment, water reuse, and sludge treatment. The authors discuss the performance, potential, and limitations of each major physicochemical treatment process in detail-including the physical and chemical theory behind it, the applications, the ...

  • Environmental Infrastructure Management

    Environmental issues continue to burden governments and economies throughout the post-communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the newly independent states of the former Soviet Union. Severe environmental degradation is endemic to the region, the existing environmental infrastructure is often inadequate, significant new ...

  • Fundamentals for the Assessment of Risks from Environmental Radiation

    Human health, aquatic, and terrestrial ecosystems are all under threat from increasing levels of environmental radiation from a variety of sources, many of them anthropogenic. This book surveys the current state of our knowledge of the fundamental processes that result from the interaction of environmental (both ionizing and UV) with living ...

  • Fundamentals for the Assessment of Risks from Environmental Radiation

    Human health, aquatic, and terrestrial ecosystems are all under threat from increasing levels of environmental radiation from a variety of sources, many of them anthropogenic. This book surveys the current state of our knowledge of the fundamental processes that result from the interaction of environmental (both ionizing and UV) with living ...

  • Synthetic Musk Fragrances in the Environment

    Over the last decade, synthetic musk fragrances, which after use enter the environment by different pathways, have been described as a new group of bioaccumulative and persistent xenobiotics. This book gives the first comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the environmental pollution caused by several different synthetic musks. Written by a wide ...

  • Stone in Architecture

    This book surveys the important stone properties, both physical and chemical, pertinent to the architect's, engineer's and stone producer's needs. Emphasis is placed on the chemical characteristics of the pollutants in air and waters and their interaction with stone which accelerates the process of stone decay, often many times faster than in ...

  • Wind Climate in Cities

    If one surveys the development of wind engineering, one comes to the conclusion that the challenge of urban climatology is one of the most important remaining tasks for the wind engineers. But what distinguishes wind engineering in urban areas from conventional wind engineering? Principally, the fact that the effects studied are usually ...

  • Contingent Valuation, Transport Safety and the Value of Life

    Over the past two decades, economic theory has extended its field of application to non-market goods such as environmental resources and health. Although it is impossible to assign a price to these goods on the basis of market mechanisms alone, the fact that they have no price does not mean that they have no value. One technique in which ...

  • The Earth Policy Reader

    If we have learned anything over the past year, it is that accounting systems that do not tell the truth can be costly. Faulty accounting systems have driven some of the world's largest corporations into bankruptcy, costing millions of people their lifetime savings, retirement income, and jobs.In The Earth Policy Reader, coauthored with Janet ...
