About this book

A one stop, comprehensive bundle of information on the three essential components of air pollution science. This Third Edition has been updated with latest development in the field, especially the inclusion of new information on the role of air pollutants in changing our climate as well as the formulation of new legislation to regulate future pollution. The new edition bears a global focus, extending the original work written mainly for readership in the UK. This has been achieved by considering the pollution situation and the regulatory progress elsewhere in the world, specifically the state of affairs in the Asia region.

The Third Edition continues to cover a wide range of air quality issues in an accessible style, while retaining a quantitative perspective. Topics covered include the sources and sinks of gaseous and particulate air pollutants, measurement techniques, meteorology and dispersion modelling, mobile sources, indoor air pollutants, and effects on plants, materials, humans and animals. Moving away from classical toxic air pollutants, there is a chapter on climate change and another on the depletion of stratospheric ozone and the associated increase in ultraviolet radiation. Many case studies are referred to, demonstrating the application of theory to practice. A special feature of this new edition is the inclusion of a fresh chapter on air pollution mitigation by vegetation. This provides extensive review of the state of knowledge of application of vegetation intervention to achieve sustainable air pollution mitigation.
