Principles of air pollution meteorology

Lyons, T.J. and Scott, W.D. (1990) Principles of air pollution meteorology. Bellhaven Press, London, UK.


Air Pollution Meteorology is concerned with the behaviour of pollutants once they are emitted into the atmosphere. This includes natural releases, deliberate industrial emissions and accidental spills. The emphasis is on industrial emissions but the authors also discuss ways of analysing and predicting the dispersal of all atmospheric emissions. The authors' aim is to provide users of this book with a structured comprehensive introduction to the techniques and models developed by atmospheric scientists for the analysis and monitoring of air pollution at the atmospheric boundary layer. The pollutant effects of the principal chemical compounds, including organic and inorganic chemicals and aerosols are discussed. The final chapter presents the main methods of measuring the impact of air pollution on the environment and the construction of pollution indices. This is both a handbook for researchers in the field, and a textbook for advanced students.
