Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students in environmental science, health, engineering, and industrial hygiene programs. Provides a broad overview of air quality science and management practices. The second edition was being completed as the Clean Air Act Amendment of 1990 was being passed, and the third reflects changes the Act has wrought. It also treats the chemistry of atmospheric pollutants more extensively, and includes more equations and quantitative material than earlier editions. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
