This book's main objective is to decipher for the reader the main processes in the atmosphere and the quantification of air pollution effects on humans and the environment, through first principles of meteorology and modelling/measurement approaches. The understanding of the complex sequence of events, starting from the emission of air pollutants into the atmosphere to the human health effects as the final event, is necessary for the prognosis of potential risk to humans from specific chemical compounds and mixtures of them. It fills a gap in the literature by providing a solid grounding in the first principles of meteorology and air pollution, making it particularly useful for undergraduate students. Its broad scope makes it a valuable text in many related disciplines, containing a comprehensive and integrated methodology to study the first principles of air pollution, meteorology, indoor air pollution, and human exposure. Problem-solving exercises help to reinforce concepts.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This volume seeks to provide an overview of the processes and effects of air pollution. . it contains material of value . . Gaussian models and plume dispersion is excellent, and the examples and questions provided at the end of every chapter are very useful pedagogic components. Summing Up: Recommended. Professionals/practitioners." (S. C. Pryor, Choice, Vol. 48 (11), July, 2011)
