Book: The Investigation of Atmospheric Pollution. A Report on Observations in the Year ended 31st March, + : Dept. Scient. Indust. Res. THE Committee for the Investigation of Atmospheric Pollution, appointed at the International Smoke Abatement Conference and Exhibition held in London last March, has held three meetings in London. Air Pollution, Second Edition, Volume I: Air Pollution and Its Effects discusses the cause, effect, transport, measurement, and control of air pollution. The volume covers the nature of air pollution; mechanism of the dispersal of air pollution by meteorological factors and from stacks; and its effect upon plants, animals, humans, materials, and visibility. Unlike the above mentioned sources of air pollution, air pollution caused by natural sources is not caused by people or their activities. An erupting volcano emits particulate matter and gases, forest and prairie fires can emit large quantities of “pollutants”, dust storms can create large amounts of particulate matter, and plants and trees naturally emit volatile organic compounds which can form aerosols that .
The authors outline the various causes for ozone depletion, the effects of ozone pollution and the relation to climate change. The book provides a handy reference guide for researchers active in atmospheric ozone research and a useful introduction for advanced students specializing in this field. Atmospheric chemistry is an important discipline for understanding air pollution and its impacts. This mini-review gives a brief history of air pollution and presents an overview of some of the.

Agriculture is a major contributor to methane (80%) (CH 4) and ammonia (90%) (NH 3).But methane makes up about 9% of total emissions, whereas CO 2 makes up about 82%. METHANE: Methane is a strong greenhouse gas and traps heat more efficiently than other gases. But it’s short-lived because it leaves the atmosphere within a decade after it’s released.
This book is comprised of 16 chapters and begins with an overview of atmospheric pollution, its causes, and prevention. The next six chapters deal with fuels, furnaces, and fires, with emphasis on natural solid fuels including coal, mineral oils and gases such as petroleum and natural gas, and artificial fuels like charcoal, alcohol, and water gas. The remaining chapters focus on the properties of atmospheric pollution and consider atmospheric pollution . During the war years routine observations of atmospheric pollution were carried on in Britain by local authorities and others, and as a result it has been possible to form an estimate of the changes in pollution caused by war conditions. In the tabulated data for the various observation stations, any significant increase or decrease in the amount of deposited matter observed during Atmospheric Pollution Research (APR) is an international journal designed for the publication of articles on air pollution. Papers should present novel experimental results, theory and modeling of air pollution on local, regional, or global scales. Air pollution modeling is a numerical tool used to describe the causal relationship between emissions, meteorology, atmospheric concentrations, deposition, and other factors. Air pollution m easurements give important, quan titativ e information about ambient concentrations and deposition, but they can only describ e air quality.
