CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Air pollution is recognized as one of the leading contributors to the global
environmental burden of disease, even in countries with relatively low
concentrations of air pollution. Air Pollution: Health and Environmental
Impacts examines the effect of this complex problem on human health and the
environment in different settings around the world. It not only covers general
modeling, monitoring, and characterization techniques but also includes field
studies and cases that offer valuable insight into region-specific issues.
With contributions from a distinguished group of international experts, the
book explores ways of controlling air pollution and mitigating its adverse
effects on human health and the environment. Often taking a regional and global
perspective, it discusses the monitoring and source characterization of air
pollution, the theory and application of air quality modeling, health effects
and risk assessment, and the environmental impacts of air pollution. The book
also addresses air quality management and relevant policy issues.
Along with providing an understanding of the scientific basis of air
pollution, this volume helps readers better appreciate social and environmental
determinants of public health and apply country-based research evidence to
reduce health disparities and environmental inequalities. It also encourages
future research and policy action on the health and environmental consequences
of air pollution from the local to global level.
