Overview

206 Line Drawings, 5 Halftones, 136 Tables, 25 Maps
Clays Library of Health and the Environment
Air pollution is a universal problem with consequences ranging from the immediate death of people and plants to gradually declining crop yields and damaged buildings. There will be profound differences in our weather, climate, economies and way of life if predictions for changes over the next 100 years are realized. This new edition continues to cover the wide range of air quality issues in an accessible style.
Topics include the sources and sinks of gaseous and particulate air pollutants, dispersion measurement, mobile sources, indoor air pollutants and effects on plants, materials, humans and animals. There is a chapter on climate change and one on the depletion of stratospheric ozone and the associated increase in ultraviolet radiation. Many global case studies are referred to, demonstrating the application of theory to practice.
