About this book

Constitutes the proceedings of the Fifteenth International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring, and Management of Air Pollution. This title contains the developments in aspects like, aerosols and particles, regional air pollution, air pollution modelling, air quality management, climate change and air pollution, emission studies, and others.
