About this book

This book offers a concise overview of issues related to air quality. The key current issues are discussed within 6 chapters and cover basic principles and classification of air pollution, radiative transfer, atmospheric boundary layer, gas-phase chemistry, aerosols and multiphase processes and chemistry transport models.

From the reviews: "Chapters cover atmospheric particulates, aerosol dynamics, and the use of numerical simulation and chemistry transport models. ! The work includes about 70 challenging exercises (with solutions) that make it especially useful for self-study by professionals from other fields who wish to review this topic. Valuable for libraries that support programs in environmental chemistry, geophysics, meteorology, and air pollution engineering. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (H. E. Pence, Choice, Vol. 47 (11), July, 2010)
