Discussing many important air pollution issues, the included contributions were presented at the 29th annual meeting in a successful series of international conferences dealing with the Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution.
The scientific knowledge derived from well-designed studies needs to be allied with further technical and economic studies to ensure cost-effective and efficient mitigation. In turn, the science, technology and economic outcomes are necessary but not sufficient. Increasingly, it is being recognised that the outcome of such research needs to be contextualised within well-formulated communication strategies that help policymakers and citizens to understand and appreciate the risks and rewards arising from air pollution management. Consequently, this volume comprises a wide range of high-quality papers that develop the fundamental science of air pollution and that place these new developments within the frame of mitigation and management of air pollution.
Air pollution issues remain one of the most challenging problems facing the international community. The varied research published in this book covers topics such as Air pollution modelling; Aerosols and nanoparticles; Emission studies; Indoor air pollution; Monitoring, measuring and air quality data; Air pollution control technologies; Industrial and transport air pollution; Climate change effects; Emerging air pollutants; Air pollution management, policy and legislation; Low carbon strategies; Biogenic emissions; Biomass emissions; Atmospheric modelling; Pollution dynamics; Air quality forecasting using satellite data; Environmental justice; Interdisciplinary studies on air quality; Transboundary air pollution; Anthropogenic pollution.
