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).
Wayne T. Davis is Professor and Program Coordinator of the Environmental Engineering Program in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Dr. Davis has taught courses and conducted research in the areas of air quality management and air pollution control since 1974. Professor Davis received the Lyman A. Ripperton Award for Outstanding Educator in the field of air pollution control from the Air and Waste Management Association in 1990. He is a Qualified Environmental Professional (QEP), which is a certification issued by the Institute for Professional Environmental Practice. Dr. Davis is a Fellow of A&WMA, where he has served in a number of volunteer positions and was the co-editor of the revised Air Pollution Engineering Manual, a well-known reference book for those working in this field.
