About this book

Air Quality Assessment is an integral component of any environmental management process. It involves not only the identification, monitoring, prediction and evaluation of such critical variables as source emissions and meteorogical conditions, but also potential changes to air quality as a result of emissions from a development and the mitigation and control of these emissions. Air Quality Assessment and Management : A practical guide describes the techniques available for an AQA while detailing the concepts and methodologies involved. It will review the principles of air quality management; primary sources of air pollution; impact of emissions on human health, flora and fauna; scoping of air quality impacts; baseline monitoring; impact prediction; impacts significance; and pollution mitigation and control. Emphasis is placed on the practical side of Air Quality Assessment, with numerous international case studies and exercises to aid the reader in their understanding of concepts and applications. Air Quality Assessment and Management is essential reading for practitioners in air quality management, environmental health officers, public health engineers, environmental consultants, and students in environmental health, pollution control, land planning and related disciplines.
