The Quality of Air discusses the topic from both the environmental and human health points-of-view. As today's policymakers, academic, government, industrial researchers, and the general public are all concerned about air pollution in both indoor and outdoor scenarios, this book presents the advances in the analytical tools available for air quality control within social, political, and legal frameworks.

With its multi-author approach, there is a wide range of expertise in tackling the topic.

Key Features

  • Addresses real scenarios of polluted sites
  • Presents updates of the available methodologies for the quality control of indoor and outdoor air
  • Includes evaluations of working scenarios in different fields as mandated by regulations


Researchers in the academic, government and industrial sectors, graduate students and for advanced courses on environmental analysis
