Overview

This new edition of the premier air pollution textbook is completely updated and revised to include all components of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. Fundamentals of Air Pollution, Third Edition covers the spectrum of topics pertinent to the study of air pollution: elements, sources, effects, measurement, monitoring, meteorology, and regulatory and engineering control. In addition, the textbook features new chapters on atmospheric emissions from hazardous waste sites, air pathways from hazardous waste sites, and the long-term effects of air pollution on the earth. It also presents updated information on acidic development, long-distance transport, atmospheric chemistry, and mathematical modeling. With extensive references, suggested reading lists, questions, and new figures and tables, this text will serve as an invaluable resource for students and practitioners alike.

• This new edition features coverage of: Regulatory requirements of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 New developments in the modelling of air quality Air pollution control Air pollution engineering/atmospheric chemistry

Audience: Students in senior and graduate courses in air pollution meteorology and control, taught in departments of atmospheric science, public health, environmental science, and engineering.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is a compendium for all involved directly or indirectly in decision making about air pullution control - regulatory or engineering. Nowhere will the non-specialist find a more concise, technically correct answer to tantalizing problems, such as acidic deposition, the cost of abatement, effects (real, not imaginary) or uncertainties which still subsist."
- THE SCIENCE OF TOTAL ENVIRONMENT (1985) "An excellent and multidisciplinary overview of the many varied aspects related to air pollution...An interesting publication particularly for those not being experts and wanting to know more about air pollution". - WATER, ANR AND SOIL POLLUTION (1985)
Booknews

Meet the Author

Dan Vallero is an internationally recognized expert in the transport, chemical transformation and environmental fate of hazardous pollutants. His three decades of professional experience in hazardous waste engineering and management have included research, teaching and regulatory advice related to a wide range of human health risk and ecological issues, from global climate change to the release of hazardous products of incomplete combustion from waste incinerators to the assessment of the risks from exposures to environmental endocrine disruptors.
Dr. Vallero recently established the Engineering Ethics program at Duke University. This innovative program introduces students to the complex relationships between science, technology and societal demands on the engineer. The lessons learned from the cases in this book are a fundamental part of Duke’s preparation of its future engineers to address the ethical dilemmas likely to be encountered during the careers of the next generation engineers.
