Air Pollution Meteorologyby Richard Segar Scorer
Synopses & Reviews
A very distinguished international scientist, who has made fundamental contributions on the climatic relationship between air pollution and meteorology, provides a compendium of realistic examples of air pollution behavior. After commencing with a general survey he takes us through a study of diffusion mechanisms including pollution from industrial chimneys and road traffic. Air Pollution Meteorology covers boundary layer scaling, pre-processing meteorological data, air quality management, urban meteorology, and atmospheric chemistry (oxides of nitrogen are central to ozone chemistry): with accounts of typical air pollution episodes and a brief dictionary of air pollutants.
