Containing the proceedings of the 23rd International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution, this book is the latest in a well-established series. It addresses various aspects of a topic that is of considerable worldwide concern due to its known impact on health and the environment.
The need to balance concern for the environment with the demand for generating economic growth makes air pollution a particularly challenging problem. Further complicating the picture, the widespread nature and effects of air pollution make it an issue that requires not just local but global attention and cooperation. Science can help us identify the nature and scale of air pollution impacts. It is therefore essential in guiding government decisions regarding the most appropriate and effective regulations.
As we learn ever more about the basic science of air pollution, and its application, we are better able to predict, assess, and mitigate its effects, locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. This book presents advances in our knowledge of the science of air pollution.
Topics covered include Air Pollution Chemistry; Air Pollution Modelling; Monitoring and Measuring; Aerosols and Particles; Exposure and Health Effects; Air Quality Management; Indoor Air Pollution; Policy Studies; Case Studies
