Air Pollution: Management Strategies, Environmental Impact and Health Risks


Gerald L. Burns (Editor)

Series: Air, Water and Soil Pollution Science and Technology
BISAC: TEC010010

This book provides new research on the management strategies, environmental impacts and health risks of air pollution. Chapter One analyzes historical air pollution data via linear regression and the time-series technique. Chapter Two provides a spatial analysis of air pollution from road transport within urban areas and its relation to health risks. Chapter Three presents the findings on the effects of short- and long-term exposure to air pollution on death rates in Belgrade, Serbia, based on a 6-year regular pollutant monitoring and the corresponding administrative records on mortality. Chapter Four discusses how bioaerosols impact the environment, and provides methods for reducing health risks. Chapter Five reviews a case study on heavy metals air pollution of mines in the Bregalnica River Basin. (Imprint: Nova)
