A comprehensive review of the subject is given in this volume, which complements the previous title covering air quality management. Dealing with the common gaseous and particulate air pollutants, including chemical carcinogens, it reviews the epidemiological and exposure chamber study research and considers mechanistic studies in the case of particulate matter. The practical issue of setting standards for human exposure to air pollution is addressed through the inclusion of the philosophy of standard setting and a review of currently available standards.


Air quality health issues for government; gaseous pollutants (SO2, NO2, C0, 03); chemical carcinogens; limitations of epidemiological studies; the 1997 USEPA standards for particulate matter and ozone; health effects of indoor air pollutants; setting health-based air quality standards; mechanitstic aspects of the health effects of airborne particles.
