This new edition of the premier air pollution textbook is completely updated and revised to include all components of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. "Fundamentals of Air Pollution, Third Edition" covers the spectrum of topics pertinent to the study of air pollution: elements, sources, effects, measurement, monitoring, meteorology, and regulatory and engineering control. In addition, the textbook features new chapters on atmospheric emissions from hazardous waste sites, air pathways from hazardous waste sites, and the long-term effects of air pollution on the earth. It also presents updated information on acidic development, long-distance transport, atmospheric chemistry, and mathematical modeling. With extensive references, suggested reading lists, questions, and new figures and tables, this text will serve as an invaluable resource for students and practitioners alike. This new edition features coverage of: regulatory requirements of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990; new developments in the modelling of air quality Air pollution control; and air pollution engineering/atmospheric chemistry.

"An excellent and multidisciplinary overview of the many varied aspects related to air pollution...An interesting publication particularly for those not being experts and wanting to know more about air pollution". -- - WATER, AIR AND SOIL POLLUTION (1985)
"The 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." -- - THE SCIENCE OF TOTAL ENVIRONMENT (1985)
