Description

Air Pollution, Second Edition, Volume III: Sources of Air Pollution and Their Control discusses the cause, effect, transport, measurement, and control of air pollution. The volume tackles the emissions to the atmosphere from the principal air pollution sources; the control techniques and equipment used to minimize these emissions; the applicable laws, regulations, and standards; and the administrative and organizational procedures used to administer these laws, regulations, and standards. Engineers, physicians, meteorologists, lawyers, economists, sociologists, agronomists, toxicologists, and public administrators will find the book a valuable reference material.
