Determination of Air Quality. Proceedings of the ACS Symposium on Determination of Air Quality.
Mamantov, Gleb, Ed.; Shults, W. D., Ed.
Composed of data submitted by a variety of experts in the field, this book provides an introduction to air pollution control. It contains the proceedings of the American Chemical Society Symposium on Determination of Air Quality held in Los Angeles, California, April 1-2, 1971. Contributions from chemists, physicians, engineers, administrators, and systems analysts provide an overview for newcomers and professionals alike working in the field of air quality control. Beginning with a review of present storage and handling activities, surveillance networks, correlative work with health effects, and efforts to combine several measured parameters into a single understandable value, the work then examines recent developments in the methodology of air quality analysis. It also explores more avant-garde topics such as the determination of odors, the use of electron spectroscopy, and the important inter-societal efforts aimed at standardizing analytical procedures in the area of air quality control. As a contribution to the present state of science and technology, this volume will generate activity in the area of pollution control at a time when more information and research is urgently needed.
