Air Pollutants and Their Effects on the Terrestrial Ecosystem is the first integrated work to present all current research on the effects of pollutants on vegetation, soils, and ecosystems. It describes the mechanisms by which pollutants act on the ecosystem components and interact with each other, as well as the latest research methods, regulatory issues, and assessments of the current state of research and future trends. Spanning a number of disciplines, from atmospheric processes, deposition mechanisms, and biological effects to research techniques, Air Pollutants and Their Effects on the Terrestrial Ecosystem examines nine distinct areas of pollution science. Prefaced by a summary of government and regulatory issues, it follows a logical "source to sink" order. Each section contains two topical review papers and a synthesis of views on a wide variety of related topics, including:
Industry Viewpoints and Govermental Air Quality Criteria Development: Terrestrial Ecosystem Impacts by Air Pollutants.
Atmospheric Chemistry of Air Pollutants.
Characterization and Quantification of Air Pollutants.
Transport and Deposition of Air Pollutants on Terrestrial Vegetation and Soils.
Terrestrial Vegetation-Air Pollutant Interactions: Gaseous Air Pollutants.
Terrestrial Vegetation-Air Pollutant Interactions: Non-Gaseous Air Pollutants.
Soil-Air Pollutant Interactions.
Data Acquisition, Interpretation, Modeling and Application in Terrestrial Vegetation-Air Pollutant Interaction Studies.
Terrestrial Ecosystem Impacts by Air Pollutants.
