Title: Air pollution: its origin and control

Abstract

The first edition of the text was modified in three broad areas: (1) new material added in several chapters for e.g., a more through coverage of particulate distributions, a mathematical analysis of the adsorption wave; (2) old material updated or removed if considered no longer appropriate for e.g., rewritten section on flue gas desulfurization, chapter on mobile sources; and (3) addition of new problems. The second edition essentially continues to present information on the following areas: (1) the effects of pollutants on health and welfare; (2) federal laws and regulations; (3) the modelling of atmosphere dispersion of pollutants; and (4) the general and specific approaches to the control of emissions-small and large scale, mobile and stationary, combustion and noncombustion. The text discusses in some depth the mechanisms responsible for the effectiveness of control devices. Instrumentation required for monitoring is covered only briefly; some economic data are presented for comparative purposes.
