About this book

This contributed volume is primarily intended for graduate and professional audiences. The book provides a basic understanding of urban air quality issues, root causes for local and urban air pollution, monitoring and modelling techniques, assessment, and control options to manage air quality at local and urban scale. The book also offers useful information on indoor air quality and smart sensors, which are gaining much importance in current times.

Dr. Shiva Nagendra,SM is presently working as a Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from IIT Delhi, India. Dr. Nagendra has more than 20 years' research experience mainly in the field of air quality monitoring, modelling, management, indoor air quality, personal exposure, control technologies and policy implications. His groups research is a mixture of filed and laboratory experiments, micro, local and urban scale air quality characterization, modelling and simulation. He has published more than 75 research publications in international and national peer reviewed journals, one reference book, and over 100 papers in peer reviewed conference proceedings. He is a member of several scientific committees, societies and technical institutions. He is the founding chairman of Indian International Conference on Air Quality Management (IICAQM) series and serves as the Vice President of Society for Indoor Environment. 

Dr. Uwe Schlink is a Senior Researcher at the Department of Urban and Environmental Sociology, Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research and Professor at University of Leipzig, Institute of Meteorology. He is heading the Air Quality Research Group in the department. His research areas include urban climate research, thermal comfort, urban air quality;personal exposure and vulnerability with extreme environmental situations in urban areas; statistical modelling and Bayesian inference. He has published around 75 articles in peer-reviewed journals and presented more than 100 conference papers. He is a member of several scientific committees and societies.

Dr. Andrea Müller is a Senior Scientist in the Department Molecular System Biology at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research in Leipzig, Germany. Her research interestslie in air quality and their impact on human health. Her special research topics are related to: Exposure analyses (indoor and outdoor) of bio aerosols (pollen, mold, bacteria, allergens); Impact of environmental pollutant compounds (air particles) on cell systems; Toxicology and mode of action of single and mixture compounds; Development of methods for analyses of PAHs in particulate matter; Statistical analysis of association between exposure and health outcome; Modeling of distribution of air contaminants

Dr. Mukesh Khare is presently working as a Professor in Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India. He is a Fellow of Institution of Engineers India and Fellow of Wessex Institute of Great Britain.
