About this book

This book presents a detailed analysis in relation to pollutant processes and transport pathways encompassing atmospheric pollutants, atmospheric deposition and build-up on road surfaces of traffic generated key pollutants. The research study undertaken by the authors created extensive knowledge relating to the relevant processes and establishing their relationships as a chain of processes. The information presented in this book was derived based on comprehensive experimental investigations including field sampling, laboratory testing, mathematical modelling and multivariate and univariate statistical data analyses. The knowledge presented will be of particular interest to readers such as stormwater treatment design specialists, decision-makers and urban planners since these outcomes provide practical suggestions and recommendations to effective urban stormwater treatment design.

About the authors


Janaka M.A. Gunawardena is a water resources engineer at Logan City Council, Queensland, Australia.  Dr. Gunawardena received his PhD degree in Environmental Engineering from Queensland University of Technology in 2012. His research interests include urban stormwater quality, hydrologic and hydraulic modelling and stormwater treatment design.

An Liu is a lecturer in Collage of Chemistry and Environmental Engineering, Shenzhen University and a visiting scholar at Queensland University of Technology. She was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Graduate School at Shenzhen, Tsinghua University and Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University. She received her Bachelor and Masters in Environmental Science from Wuhan University  in 2006 and 2008 respectively, and PhD degree in Environmental Engineering from Queensland University of Technology in 2011. Her research interests include urban stormwater quality, hydrologic modelling, stormwater treatment design and Low Impact Development (LID). Dr Liu has published two books and a number of research papers primarily focusing on urban stormwater quality.

Prasanna Egodawatta is a Senior Lecturer in Water/Environmental Engineering at Queensland University of Technology. He received the PhD degree from Queensland University of Technology in 2007. He has over a decade of experience in both industry and academia in water and environmental engineering fields. The main foci of his current research are urban hydrology, stormwater quality and water, and environmental systems modelling. Dr Egodawatta has published extensively in environmental science and environmental engineering fields with key focus on stormwater quantity and quality modelling. He has also undertaken a number of research and consultancy projects establishing links between research domain and industry practice.

Ayoko is a Professor of Chemistry at Queensland University of Technology. His recent research interests include monitoring and modelling of environmental pollutants, development of analytical techniques for measuring environmental pollutants and applications of inorganic materials for the removal of environmental pollutants. He has authored and co-authored over 200 articles in scientific journals, books, encyclopedia and peer-reviewed conference proceedings.  He has been a Fellow of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute since 2008. In 2014, he was awarded the Environmental Chemistry Medal for excellence in scientific work in Australia that involved substantial Environmental Chemistry or for service to Environmental Chemistry in Australia in the past ten years by the Institute‚Äôs Analytical and Environmental Chemistry Division.

Ashantha Goonetilleke is a Professor in Water/Environmental Engineering at Queensland University of Technology. His areas of expertise include water security and adaptation to climate change, Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), stormwater and wastewater recycling, water conservation and water pollution and treatment. Since 2000, Prof. Goonetilleke has published more than 150 scholarly publications, including books, book chapters and peer reviewed journal and conference papers. Additionally, for ten years he served as a technical advisor in sustainability with Brisbane Airport Corporation and has also held the Professorial Chair in Airport Innovation providing advice on a range of sustainability initiatives.
