Contents Notes
Urban air pollution climates throughout the world / Ole Hertel and Michael Evan Goodsite -- Influences of meteorology on air pollution concentrations and processes in urban areas / Jenny A. Salmond and I.G. McKendry -- Atmospheric chemical processes of importance in cities / William Bloss -- Air pollution in underground railway systems / Imre Salma -- Human exposure : indoor and outdoor / Sotiris Vardoulakis -- Health effects of urban pollution / Robert L. Maynard -- The policy response to improving urban air quality / Martin Williams. This comprehensive volume deals with the basic science of urban air pollution in relation to the sources and concentrations, and the atmospheric chemical and physical processes which determine those concentrations and lead to the formation of secondary pollutants by chemical reactions in the atmosphere.
