9780124017337: Fundamentals of Air Pollution, Fifth Edition

Fundamentals of Air Pollution is an important and widely used textbook in the environmental science and engineering community. This thoroughly revised fifth edition of Fundamentals of Air Pollution has been updated throughout and remains the most complete text available, offering a stronger systems perspective and more coverage of international issues relating to air pollution. Sections on pollution control have been reorganized and updated to demonstrate the move from regulation and control approaches to green and sustainable engineering approaches.

The fifth edition maintains a strong interdisciplinary approach to the study of air pollution, covering such topics as chemistry, physics, meteorology, engineering, toxicology, policy, and regulation. New material includes near-road air pollution, new risk assessment approaches, indoor air quality, the impact of biofuels and fuel additives, mercury emissions, forecasting techniques, and the most recent results from the National Air Toxics Assessment.

  • Stronger systems approach, emphasizing the impact of air pollution on ecosystems and human health
  • Risks, measures, models, and control of air pollution are discussed at scale – starting at the individual/niche level and expanding to planetary/global scale
  • Increased emphasis on international issues, including coverage of European initiatives and discussions of the impact of emerging economies like India and China
  • Updated references, standards, and methods throughout the book make this the most current air pollution text/reference on the market
  • All new end-of-chapter problems enhance its usefulness as a course text

From the Back Cover:

Packed with numerous new examples Fundamentals of Air Pollution, Fifth Edition provides a multidisciplinary approach to the various aspects of air pollution design and control. Updated to reflect the numerous changes in the regulations, new threats and new technologies to combat these threats, the 5th edition of this classic book features new sections on carbon sequestration and management of the nitrogen cycle. Other updates include numerous MACTs which were introduced in the 4ht edition, including secondary lead (Pb) smelting, petroleum refining, aerospace manufacturing, marine vessel loading, ship building, printing and publishing, elastomer production, offsite waste operations, and polyethylene terephthalate polymer and styrene-based thermoplastic polymers production. With this book, engineers find the ultimate mix of control actions and devices employed to achieve the allowable levels on an economic basis.

About the Author:

Dr. Daniel A. Vallero is an internationally recognized expert in environmental science and engineering. His four decades of research, teaching and professional experience in hazardous waste engineering and management have addressed a wide range of human health risk and ecological issues, from global climate change to the release of hazardous wastes. His research has advanced the state-of-the-science of air and water pollution measurement, models of potential exposures to chemicals in consumer products, and environmental impact assessments.

He established the Engineering Ethics program and is a key collaborator in the Responsible Conduct of Research Program at Duke University. These programs introduce students, from first-year through PhD, to the complex relationships between science, technology and societal demands on the engineer. The lessons learned from the cases in this book are a fundamental part of Duke’s preparation of its future engineers to address the ethical dilemmas likely to be encountered during the careers of the next generation engineers.

Dr. Vallero received a bachelor’s degree from Southern Illinois University, a Master of Science in City & Regional Planning from SIU, a Masters in Civil & Environmental Engineering (Environmental Health Sciences) from the University of Kansas, and a PhD in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Duke.
