  • 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 continued implementation of abatement measures, ...

  • 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. As a first effect, both sea/land breezes and ...

  • Air Pollution XV

    Publishing papers from the Fifteenth International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution, this book features articles on the latest developments in air pollution analysis and control. It covers the topic areas of Air pollution modelling; Air quality management; Emission studies; Monitoring and laboratory studies; Aerosols and particles; Climate change and 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 now.Indoor Air Quality Engineering covers a wide range of indoor air quality engineering principles ...

  • Ozone Air Pollution in the Sierra Nevada - Distribution and Effects on Forests

    The book contains information on geology, climate and vegetation of the Sierra Nevada with a special emphasis on air pollution effects on the mixed conifer forests. A history of the extent of air pollution effects on mixed conifer forests, especially ponderosa and Jeffrey pines is provided. The physiological basis for ozone-type injury development in ponderosa pine, a discussion of ozone ...

  • 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 properties of the compounds are discussed and ...

  • Indoor Environmental Quality

    When we think of indoor pollution, we usually think of conditions originating from faulty ventilation systems, second hand smoke, and other air borne pollutants. Taking an in-depth, hard science look at the problems of indoor environmental pollution, Indoor Environmental Quality covers all the major indoor contaminants - inorganic, organic, and biological. ...

  • Air Quality Management

    The management of air quality is currently at the forefront of international debate. With authors drawn from international experts in their respective fields, Air Quality Management provides comprehensive coverage of the air quality management issue. There are chapters on improving air quality in the UK, the construction of emissions inventories and the design and operation of air monitoring ...

  • Monitoring Methods for Toxics in the Atmosphere

    Addresses some of the most important classes of air toxics, those that currently generate national and international concern regarding human and ecological hazards, namely volatile organic compounds; acid gases; and HCL and heavy metals from waste incineration. 16 papers that review developments and challenges in the areas of sampling, instrumentation, standards, and analysis of monitoring ...

  • Sampling and Calibration for Atmospheric Measurements

    Papers explain how to design and carry out atmospheric sampling, how to reliably calibrate instruments, and thus how to obtain more reliable measurements in relation to understanding and controlling air pollution, work place atmospheres, and indoor air ...

  • Instrumentation for Monitoring Air Quality

    Sixteen papers give an overview of modern air monitoring instrumentation. Every air pollution engineer should have a ...

  • Urban Air Quality - Monitoring and Modelling

    These proceedings consist of the latest advances in the field of monitoring and modelling urban air quality. Although air pollution has been of interest for many decades over the past few years the concerns of urban air quality have increased dramatically. The primary reason for this has been the continual growth in road traffic in almost all urban centres in the world. Consequently, the ...

  • Costs of Air Pollution Control

    This book describes the development of cost effective abatement strategies aimed at the control of air pollutant emissions in Europe, with a focus on ground level ozone. The author starts with the air pollution status quo in the late 1990s, discussing the impacts of photooxidant concentrations in the context of other air pollution related effects. Emission sources are then analysed in detail, ...

  • Air Pollution XXIII

    Containing the proceedings of the 23rd International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution, this book is the latest in a well-established series. It addresses various aspects of a topic that is of considerable worldwide concern due to its known impact on health and the ...

  • Air Pollution Effects On Biodiversity

    Biodiversity is the delicate ecological balance within biological systems such as species and populations. Evidence suggests air pollution disrupts and impoverishes ecosysytems processes, and genetic and population diversity. Based on a symposium conducted by the EPA's Environmental Research Laboratory, this book pulls together current knowledge on the subject, assesses its relevance, and ...

  • Health Effects of Ambient Air Pollution

    Health Effects of Ambient Air Pollution provides the reader with an overview of the health effects of air pollution in human subjects. The majority of the book is devoted to the discussion of the health effects of common widespread air pollutants regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through national ambient air quality standards. The book reviews the sources and fate of ...

  • Field Methods for Geologists and Hydrogeologists

    The authors describe project performance, methods for field study of rocks, soils, and outcrops and how to evaluate impacts of air pollution and water resources systems. Furthermore, they develop guidelines for graphic and text presentation of results of studies and describe superficial rock characteristics and subsurface geological mapping techniques. The text covers hydrogeologic methods, ...

  • Sulphur in Agroecosystems

    This is the second volume in the series Nutrients in Ecosystems. Sulphur as an essential plant nutrient has received little attention. This is explained by the facts that sulphur was obviously in sufficient supply from the atmosphere, from soil and as a by-product in mineral fertilizers. Increases in the yield potential and thus in the nutrient requirement of modern crops, however, as well ...
