Airborne Particles: Origin, Emissions and Health Impacts $195.00
Editors: Prashant Kumar (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Surrey, UK)
Book Description:
Airborne Particles: Origin, Emissions and Health Impacts compiles a number of well-known authors in their respective research fields who have contributed their chapters on numerous specialised topics, such as sources of particulate matter emissions, their dispersion modelling, long-range transport, and both epidemiological and toxicological effects on human health. A part of this book is dedicated to controlling measures of particulate matter using innovative methods and approaches. This book revolves around particulate matter, mainly in outdoor environments. It contains a wide range of chapters, from critical reviews to original research-based case studies for different regions of the world. This book contains both very basic information that is important for undergraduate students and advanced research-based content, which is sufficient to draw the attention of young and established researchers.

Book Reviews

“Expertly edited by Prashant Kumar, this volume presents a comprehensive compilation of the analyses and insights of internationally recognized scientists and engineers studying the airborne particulate matter, a subject of increasing concern due to its impact on quality of life and human health. Chapter authors consider emission sources, including traffic and biomass burning; local and regional transport and dispersion; size distribution and chemical composition; indoor and outdoor exposure; and human health effects from epidemiological and toxicological perspectives. For cities everywhere but with particular emphasis on Asia, this book encourages action to control particle emissions and reduce exposure of urban inhabitants.” - Professor Leslie Norford, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

"The book offers a unique synthesis of the latest research on particulate matter from sources to health effects. It is an excellent reference for students and professionals." - Professor Yang Zhang, North Carolina State University, USA

"This new book provides an excellent up-to-date overview of the science behind particulate matter from sources to chemical transformation and transport in the atmosphere at various scales while discussing “hot topics” such as the implications of PM on human health. The selection of topics is captivating while retaining a rigorous style. The modern approach i.e. starting from real case scenarios involves the inclusion of lots of new material and understanding in a well-organized format which makes this book an excellent reference for students and researchers." - Professor Silvana Di Sabatino, University of Bologna, Italy

"This book presents a wide range of topics related to air pollution: vehicular emissions, health impacts and mitigation, interactions between infrastructure and particulate matter, indoor air pollution, among others. These updated topics make this book an important reference for the state-of-art science of air pollution. The book is suitable for graduate students and scientists and provides an excellent opportunity to improve the current knowledge on air pollution and its control." - Professor Maria de Fatima Andrade, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil

"Airborne particulate matter is one of the main avoidable causes of human disease across the world. Developed countries have made progress in reducing population exposure, but much remains to be achieved in these countries, and the less developed countries have barely started their clean-up. Despite intensive research activity, there are many major knowledge gaps over the sources, atmospheric pathways and health effects of particulate matter. I warmly welcome the publication of this edited volume which seeks to provide a timely overview of the field of study." - Professor Roy M Harrison, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom

"Air pollution is one of the key risks faced by people worldwide and is associated with a large burden of disease. Among all air pollutants, particulate matter places at the top due to its significant impact on health, but it is also a very complex, multi-factorial pollutant, which needs to be far better understood and controlled than it currently is. Therefore this book is very timely in bringing together valuable information on all the relevant aspects of this important topic. I have no doubt that the information and knowledge compiled by the book will constitute an important aid for a wide spectrum of professionals involved in this field, in deepening their knowledge and helping them in a quest to prevent air pollution and its consequences." - Professor Lidia Morawska, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
