Air Pollution is one of the most challenging problems facing the international community; it is widespread and growing in importance and has clear and known impacts on health and the environment. The human need for transport, manufactured goods and services brings with it impacts on the atmospheric environment at scales from the local to the global. The rate of development of the global economy brings new pressures and the willingness of governments to regulate air pollution is often balanced by concerns over the economic impact of such regulation. Science is the key to identifying the nature and scale of air pollution impacts and is essential in the formulation of policies for regulatory decision-making. Continuous improvements in our knowledge of the fundamental science of air pollution and its application are necessary if we are to predict, assess and mitigate the air pollution implications to local, regional, national and international economic systems.
The Eighteenth Annual Meeting in the successful series of International Conferences dealing with Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution discussed papers dealing with a wide variety of topics, including: Air Pollution Modelling; Air Quality Management; Air Pollution Mitigation; Aerosols and Particles; Emission Studies; Exposure and Health Effects; Indoor Air Pollution; Innovative Indoor Air Quality Techniques; Monitoring and Measuring.
