Air Pollution.
Barker, K.; And Others
Pollution of the general environment, which exposes an entire population group for an indeterminate period of time, certainly constitutes a problem in public health. Serious aid pollution episodes have resulted in increased mortality and a possible relationship between chronic exposure to a polluted atmosphere and certain diseases has been suggested. Thus, this monograph brings together a body of recent information on a number of aspects of air pollution for the benefit of public officials, and in particular public health officials, who are faced with the necessity of taking appropriate and effective action. Essays are titled: A Historical Review of Atmospheric Pollution; The Identification of the Air Pollution Problem; The Role of Meteorology in Air Pollution; Sampling, Analysis and Instrumentation in the Field of Air Pollution; Some Aspects of the Physical and Chemical Nature of Air Pollution; Effects of Air Pollution on Human Health; Effects of Air Pollution on Animals; Effects of Air Pollution on Plants; Economic and Social Aspects of Air Pollution; Control of Air Pollution by Site Selection and Zoning; Prevention and Control of Air Pollution by Process Changes or Equipment; Fuel Selection and Utilization; Air Pollution Legislation: Standards and Enforcement; and Radioactive Pollution of the Atmosphere.
