About this book

Latest edition of the excellent textbook.

The book is a compendium for all involved directly or indirectly in decision making about air pollution control--regulatory or engineering. Nowhere will the non-specialist find a more concise, technically correct answer to tantalizing problems, such as acidic deposition, the cost of abatement, effects (real, not imaginary) or uncertainties which still subsist. --THE SCIENCE OF TOTAL ENVIRONMENT (1985) "An excellent and multidisciplinary overview of the many varied aspects related to air pollution...An interesting publication particularly for those not being experts and wanting to know more about air pollution." --WATER, AIR AND SOIL POLLUTION (1985) "The three authors are recognized leaders in their respective fields, who have combined their skills to update and develop this edition of this book...This book is an outstanding place to begin learning about any number of air pollution topics and how these topics relate to other problems in air pollution." --AMERICAN SCIENTIST "This text is an easy-to-read book about six major aspects of air pollution...This book could serve as an excellent textbook for an undergraduate curriculum dealing with environmental issues." --AMERICAN SCIENTIST "It makes a handy reference book...and a solid textbook for a first course in air pollution. This book is an excellent introductory text to regional and local tropospheric air pollution issues, policy and regulations. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in understanding the basic concepts of tropospheric air pollution." --PAGEOPH
