Air Pollution Calculations introduces the equations and formulae that are most important to air pollution, but goes a step
further. Most texts lack examples of how these equations and formulae apply to the quantification of real-world scenarios
and conditions. The ample example calculations apply to current air quality problems, including emission inventories, risk
estimations, biogeochemical cycling assessments, and efficiencies in air pollution control technologies. In addition, the
book explains thermodynamics and fluid dynamics in step-by-step and understandable calculations using air quality and multimedia
modeling, reliability engineering and engineering economics using practical examples likely to be encountered by scientists,
engineers, managers and decision makers. The book touches on the environmental variables, constraints and drivers that can
influence pollutant mass, volume and concentrations, which in turn determine toxicity and adverse outcomes caused by air pollution.
How the pollutants form, move, partition, transform and find their fate are explained using the entire range of atmospheric
phenomena. 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 impacted
by air pollution.
