Air Pollution. Resource Paper No. 2.
Bryson, Reid A.; Kutzbach, John E.
These Resource Papers have been developed as expository documents for the use of both the student and the instructor in undergraduate college geography courses at the introductory and advanced level. They are designed to supplement existing texts and to fill a gap between significant research in American geography and readily accessible materials. The papers are concerned with concepts or topics in modern geography and focus on one of three general themes: geography theory; policy implications; or contemporary social relevance. The papers are introduced by a section entitled "Sewers in the Sky," followed by sections on: the location of air pollution; mechanisms of air pollution production, concentration, spread and removal; and the significance of air pollution with respect to health, esthetics, economics and global climate. A summary, a listing of references cited, and additional bibliographic material conclude these papers. (BT)
