About this book

Consists of a collection of authoritative reviews and essays on the science and application of air pollution research at the start of this new century.

J.W. Erisman ...There is no doubt that this first book of the Elsevier series on the Developments in Environmental Science provides a valuable collection of review papers and will be used as a reference to get a quick overview of the different subjects on air pollution issues. Environmental Science & Policy ...a must for scientific libraries. The Naturalist J. Speight ...This book is a worthy addition to the bookshelves of environmental scientists, engineers, decision makers, and legislators. Energy Sources ...readers from both academia and administration will find stimulating ideas and areas in the book to direct scientific, technical and regulatory efforts. International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry
