Series: WIT Transactions on Ecology and the Environment, 101

Air pollution represents one of the most challenging issues that humankind is facing. With the economic growth of emerging countries leading to an increase in the demand for energy, the prevention of air deterioration by means of controlling atmospheric emission has become an urgent task. The mitigation and strategies for traditional, but persistent air pollution problems, are also becoming an ever more important issue.Science has a crucial role to play in the anticipation, comprehension and mitigation of atmospheric pollution phenomena. However, the need for the general population to have a diligent awareness in the process of implementing policies is fundamental towards the success of legislative efforts. With papers from the Fifteenth Annual International Conference on the Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution, this volume contains latest developments in aspects like, aerosols and particles, regional air pollution, air pollution modelling, air quality management, climate change and air pollution, emission studies, indoor pollution and monitoring and laboratory studies.
