Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Primarily addressed to graduate students, but also of possible interest to technical specialists in international, governmental, and municipal institutions; in private consulting companies; and in non- governmental organizations. Focuses on European cities and the problem of air pollution on the urban scale, rather than the regional or global, so that traffic is considered as a source of local pollutants but not of greenhouse gases. The treatment is technical and scientific, covering sources of air pollution, basic atmospheric phenomena, modelling, measuring air quality, impacts, and policies and legislation. The 26 papers represent various disciplines and approaches, but an editorial pumice stone has shaped them into a unified account. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
