Editor's introduction / Edward J. Taaffe -- Preface -- Introduction : Causes of the present air pollution problems -- Definition, sources, and types of air pollution -- Meteorological aspects of air pollution -- Health aspects of air pollution -- Economic aspects of air pollution -- Technology and air pollution -- Measures of air pollution control -- The public and air pollution control -- Epilogue : Atmospheric pollution and our future. This text concentrates on specific air pollution problem areas. Chapters are structured to include a descriptive section which introduces the bulk of the information available concerning the specific problem area, followed by an explanatory section which discusses possible solutions. Work in atmospheric pollution will require specially trained personnel who can respond professionally to the requirements of a problem that spans a wide range of academic disciplines. An interdisciplinary approach is used in this book in the hope of creating the kind of cooperative spirit that must be evidenced if any progress is ever going to be made toward finding an overall solution to the air pollution crisis. - Preface.
