This book primarily describes how to undertake air quality assessment and management studies at the project level, and
therefore details basic concepts, techniques, methodologies and practices.
The book reviews the principles of air quality assessment and management; primary sources of air pollution; air pollution
effects on human health, flora and fauna, etc; scoping of air quality impacts; baseline monitoring; impact prediction; impact
significance and pollution mitigation and control. Included are a series of case studies and exercises. The book concludes with
individual case studies on the application of air quality assessment and management. It is not the intention of the book to
address global air quality issues, therefore these are only detailed at a cursory level.
The book is intended as a practical guide for practitioners and undergraduate students studying air pollution assessment and
management, or disciplines of environmental sciences, geography, environmental engineering and the broader social sciences.
It is hoped that this book will serve as a helpful guide. The topic of air pollution control is large and diversified. Therefore
this book only provides specific elements of a myriad of strands that form a fascinating subject.
