Description - Air Quality Assessment and Management by Owen Harrop
Air Quality Assessment is an integral component of any environmental management process. It involves not only the indentification, monitoring, prediction and evaluation of such critical variables as source emissions and meterological conditions, but also potential changes to air quality as a result of emissions from a development and the mitigation and control of these emissions. Air Quality Assessment: A practical guide describes the techniques available for an AQA while detailing the concepts and methodologies involved. It will review the principles of air quality management; primary sources of air pollution; impact of emissions on human health, flora and fauna; scoping of air quality impacts; baseline monitoring; impact prediction; impact significance; and pollution mitigation and control. Emphasis will be placed on the practical side of Air Quality Assessment, with numerous international case studies and exercises to aid the reader in their understanding of concepts and applications.
Air Quality Assessment and Management is essential reading for practitioners in air quality management, environmental health officers, public health engineers, environmental consultants and students in environmental health, pollution control, land planning and related disciplines.
