Atmospheric Pollution: History, Science, and Regulation provides a comprehensive introduction to the history and science of major air pollution issues. The book begins with an introduction to the basic atmospheric chemistry and the history of discovery of chemicals in the atmosphere, and then moves on to a discussion of the evolution of the earth's atmosphere, and the structure and composition of the present-day atmosphere. It then provides a comprehensive and accessible discussion of the five major atmospheric pollution topics: urban outdoor air pollution, indoor air pollution, acid deposition, stratospheric ozone reduction, and global climate change. The book contains numerous student examples and problems, over 200 color illustrations, and will form an ideal introductory textbook for a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses on atmospheric pollution. It will also form a valuable reference text for researchers, and an introduction to the subject for general audiences.

Review:

' ... useful to students of environmental science and others with its up-to-date material, easy style, problems and examples and outstanding illustrations. ... it is packed with enough quantitative and qualitative information to form the basis of a lecture course, or to act as a primer for general reader interested in the whole issue of air pollution. I do not think that there is a better book for engaging interest in the science of air pollution and I, for one, will certainly be recommending it to my second-year students.' Chemistry in Britain

'... a very readable book, which fulfils its major intent as a good introductory textbook on atmospheric pollution for undergraduate students.' Dimitris Melas, E. G. S. Newsletter

'... for anyone with an interest in the evolution and causes of air pollution.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'I will be very surprised if this does not become one of the standard texts in this field, especially for environmental science courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level, as well as a general reference and sourcebook for anybody interested in the history of airborne pollutants and their study, pollution meteorologists and atmospheric chemists.' P. J. A. Burt, Weather

'This material provided new insight into how trace gases were first discovered and how the atmosphere evolved.' Matt Fraser, Rice University

'It is an ideal introductory textbook on atmospheric pollution for undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in atmospheric chemistry and physics, meteorology, environment law and politics, and city planning and regulation. it also is a valuable reference text for researchers and an introduction to the subject for general audiences. the book is international in its scope, contains numerous examples and problems, and 200 colour illustrations, thus making it very reader-friendly.' International Journal of Environmental Studies

'... warmly recommended ...'. Meteorologische Zeitschrift

'As a textbook I would highly recommend this work ...'. Open University Geological Society Journal
