Atmospheric Pollution : History, Science, and Regulation provides a comprehensive introduction to the history and science of major air pollution issues. It begins with an introduction to basic atmospheric chemistry and the history of discovery of chemicals in the atmosphere, then moves on to a discussion of the evolution of the earth's atmosphere and the structure and composition of the present-day atmosphere. Subsequently, a comprehensive and accessible discussion of the five major atmospheric pollution topics - urban outdoor air pollution, indoor air pollution, acid deposition, stratospheric ozone reduction, and global climate change provided. Each chapter discusses the history and science behind these problems, their consequences, and the effort made through government intervention and regulation to mitigate them. The book contains numerous student examples and problems, more than 200 color illustrations, and is international in scope. Atmospheric Pollution : History, Science, and Regulation forms an ideal introductory textbook on atmospheric pollution for undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in atmospheric chemistry and physics, meteorology, environmental law and politics, and city planning and regulation. It also forms a valuable refererence text for researchers and an introduction to the subject for general audiences.
