From the Back Cover:

A truly classic air pollution piece, this book is suitable for a variety of engineers and scientists who wish to gain an introduction to the field of air pollution. Known for its detailed development and application of equations, the book emphasizes an understanding of the relationship between sources and control of air pollution, rather than being a simple "handbook" on the subject. The book presents information on four broad areas of interest in the air pollution field; the effects of pollutants on health and welfare; the laws and regulations that have been passed in efforts to improve air quality; the modeling of atmospheric dispersion of pollutants; the approaches to the control of emissions (from both stationary and mobile sources).

FEATURES/BENEFITS

  • New material has been added to bring the book up to date on the latest regulations including the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.
  • The latest standards for ambient air quality and emission have been included in this revision.
  • The authors continue to expose the reader to both the quantitative and the qualitative aspects of air quality management and air pollution control with several new questions and problems, with SI units emphasized to a greater extent than in the previous edition.
  • The Internet is also introduced as a valuable source of additional information.
