Urban Air Pollution : Monitoring and Control Strategies - Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop "Monitoring and Control Strategies for Urban Air Pollution", Held in Erice, Italy, October
Part of the NATO Asi series
The presence of high levels of atmospheric pollutants in the air of several urban centres of developed and developing countries has caused great concern among authorities and public opinion.
The book provides a comprehensive review of the field of urban pollution.
Further, it offers insights into specific issues such as the use of receptor modeling for volatile organic compounds, the role and the mechanism of the formation of nitrous acid in urban atmospheres, and the evaluation of the dynamics of the boundary layer.
It is an invaluable source of information for anyone interested in environmental pollution and management of the urban atmosphere, in particular for people in government or research institutions concerned with environmental protection, monitoring and impact assessment.
