About this book

Over the last few years considerable advances have been made in the field of air pollution studies due to an increasing awareness of the many negative effects this problem has on both health and the environment. Bringing together recent results and state-of-the-art contributions from researchers working around the world in industry, research organisations and academia, this book contains most of the papers presented at the Eleventh International Conference on the Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution. Almost 70 papers on topics ranging from experimental to computational techniques are featured, providing readers with a better understanding of practical air pollution problems and potential solutions. The contributors cover a wide variety of topics including: Air Pollution Modelling; Aerosols and Particles; Air Pollution Monitoring; Chemistry of Air Pollution; Emission Inventories; Global and Regional Studies; Health Problems; Indoor Pollution; Monitoring and Laboratory Studies; Pollution Engineering; and Urban and Suburban Air Pollution.

An attempt at modelling; Fuzzy logic modelling of air pollution during Chinook winds; A 3D CNN-based approach to integrate the air pollution diffusion equation; Micrometeorological database for air pollution modelling in the Mexico City metropolitan area; Air pollution monitoring and modelling in the urban area of Catania; Environmental impact assessment of an industrial facility by means of Lagrangian particles and Gaussian models in complex terrain; Evaluation of two street canyon air quality models using data from European cities; Importance of local meteorology in coastal ozone dynamics: a case study; Estimating biogenic contributions to ozone production at continental scale; Differential absorption lidar (DIAL) applied to the mapping of horizontal air pollution distribution: examples from measurement campaigns in the Czech Republic; The conditional moment closure approach for atmospheric pollution problems; Analytic solutions of two coupled reaction-diffusion equations; Air pollution modelling surrounding Serdang power station; A computational analysis of re-burn process in wood/sludge-fired stoker boilers. Section 2 Aerosols and particles: Fine particulate matter pollution of air in Tuscany; Emission inventory for fine dust in Flanders (Belgium); Carbonaceous material in an Italian megacity: a brief overview; Chemical characterization of aerosol particles in Hong Kong. Section 3 Air pollution monitoring: Analysis of environmental time series in the frequency domain; Comparing neural networks and transfer function models for ozone forecasting; Monitoring of biogenic emissions using remote sensing. Section 4 Chemistry of air pollution: Estimation of biogenic emissions of non-methane volatile organic compounds from Catalonia; Variation in PM10 chemical composition on low and high pollution days; Sulphur dioxide dry deposition flux and velocity in Northern Thailand; Influence of volcanic passive degassing on air quality in the Mt. Etna area; Trends in the base cation deposition in Finland. (part contents)
