The control, prevention and mitigation of air pollution are explained based on physical, chemical and biological principles which is crucial to science-based policy and decision-making. Users will find this to be a comprehensive, single resource that will help them understand air pollution, quantify existing data, and help those whose work is. air pollution, contamination of the air by noxious gases and minute particles of solid and liquid matter (particulates) in concentrations that endanger health. The major sources of air pollution are transportation engines, power and heat generation, industrial processes, and the burning of solid waste. The combustion of gasoline and other. Upon economic booming and rapid urbanization, China has been suffering from severe air pollution problem. While the Chinese government strives to reduce emissions through numerous laws, standards and policy measures, rapid economic and social changes challenge policy design and implementation. Over time, control policies have been largely ineffective and air quality in the majority of the Author: Ying Li, Ke Chen.

Daniel A. Vallero, in Air Pollution Calculations, Biogeochemical cycles and decision making. Air quality management decisions are often made among competing interests and perspectives. These involve trade-offs. For example, remediating a contaminated site may call for excavation of soil, which is then incinerated.

Washington, D.C.: NIPCC: For sale by the Supt. of Docs., U.S.G.P.O., (OCoLC) Online version: National Industrial Pollution Control Council. Process and Systems Engineering Sub-Council. Mathematical models for air pollution control policy decision-making. Air pollution control decisions affect everyone. Like the legislative process of the U.S. Constitution, which divides decision-making among three branches of government, the air pollution control decision-making process is full of similar “checks and balances.” Public participation is the means by.

Air Quality Management begins with an introduction to the atmosphere around us and the units of concentration. It then discusses the importance of meteorology and the part it plays in air quality, before detailing the main types of air pollutants, their sources, and their effects on . he book is a compendium for all involved directly or indirectly in decision making about air pullution control - regulatory or engineering. Nowhere will the non-specialist find a more concise, technically correct answer to tantalizing problems, such as acidic deposition, the cost of abatement, effects (real, not imaginary) or uncertainties which still subsist.

Hagevik Praeger Publishers New York Australian/Harvard Citation. Air pollution occurs when harmful or excessive quantities of substances including gases (such as carbon dioxide, ammonia, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, methane and chlorofluorocarbons), particulates (both organic and inorganic), and biological molecules are introduced into Earth's may cause diseases, allergies and even death to humans; it may also cause harm to.
