About This Book

Air pollution has become a major global issue due to rapid industrialization, human population growth and increasing urbanization. The various sources of atmospheric pollutants, both those created by human activity and those from natural physical and biological processes, have become the focus of much scientific research and analysis. An understanding of how these many pollutants are affecting air quality is essential in order to design strategies to mitigate them.Written by a team of international experts, this book aims to provide a broad overview of the issues surrounding air pollution and how to control and monitor pollution levels. Beginning with a brief background on the subject, the book moves on to discuss global emissions, with an emphasis on megacities and their effects. Possible pollution control measures and methods of air pollution measurement and modelling are also explored. The book ends with descriptions of the various indices used for assessing air quality with a focus on human health impacts, and a discussion on policy making to control air pollution.The book will be useful to students of environmental science and atmospheric science, as well as environmental consultants and researchers interested in air quality.Key Features:Comprehensive introduction to the primary causes of air pollution today with an emphasis on growing urban populations and megacitiesDiscusses both anthropogenic and biogenic emissions and their effects on human health and the environmentGives an overview of indices used today for assessing air quality and describes current methods for air pollution monitoring and modellingDiscusses new technologies for mitigating the effects of air pollution and policy making for implementation of controls
