Individuals working in the air pollution field often need access to data concerning the characteristics and behavior of air, gases and particles, and the chemistry of atmospheric pollutants, and to data of a general nature such as mathematics and common conversion factors. At present, to have access to all this information, the individual needs a wide variety of reference books. The Air Pollution Handbook was designed to consolidate the applicable portions of these numerous references into a single, easily accessible source. The primary consideration for inclusion in the handbook is that the information be unlikely to change. This, then, excludes experimental results and data on air quality, even though these may be quite useful. The one exception to this general rule is the section on medical aspects. The experimental data that is included here is widely accepted in the field of biological experimentation. (Author)
