About this book

The problem of air quality control concerns a wide range of disciplines. This introductory book explains the origin of pollutants and their dispersion and transformation in the atmosphere, describes their effects on humans, animals, plants, and objects, and presents techniques for the reduction of emissions from a variety of sources.
Measuring techniques are emphasized because of their importance for the detection of pollutants and for monitoring the performance of emission control equipment. The closing chapter discusses international regulations for air quality control.
For all those interested in environmental protection this book is a highly readable introduction to the field of air pollution and air quality control. It serves as a useful textbok for teachers and students, and as a reference for practice-oriented work in industry, consultancies, administration, and environmental agencies. Günter Baumbach, born in 1948, is Professor of Air Quality Control at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. His fields of research cover emission reduction for combustion processes and experimental investigations of air pollutant dispersion in urban and rural areas. He holds lectures on air pollution prevention, air quality control, and measuring techniques.
