Description

Large amounts of data obtained through environmental monitoring of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in 10 Asian countries and Australia have been compiled and explored using principles of environmental chemistry, toxicology, and risk assessment. This book also includes descriptions and discussions of current governmental policies, monitoring and surveillance programs, history of manufacturing and applications, emission sources, impacts on human health, and cross-boundary transport of POPs in these countries.

Key Features

  • Compiles up-to-date sources, distributions, transport, and fates of highly concerned persistent organic pollutants (POPs)
  • Presents exploratory examinations of the data guided by the principles of environmental chemistry, toxicology, and risk assessment
  • Includes important context and insight regarding government policies, monitoring and surveillance programs, history of manufacturing and applications, emission sources, impact on human health, and cross-boundary transport of POPs

Readership

Environmental researchers, government decisions makers, international organizations, environmental organizations, chemical industries seeking information on persistent organic pollutants on a global scale.
