Air Pollution Meteorology and Dispersion

S. Pal Arya

Air Pollution Meteorology and Dispersion provides a concise yet thorough review of the basic theories, models, experiments, and observations of pollutant dispersal in the atmosphere. It offers the theoretical and empirical bases of frequently used dispersion models while emphasizing the limitations and uncertainties inherent in these models. Sufficient background material on atmospheric structure, dynamics, and circulation systems and their importance to atmospheric dispersion is included for students who do not yet have a strong meteorological background. Problems and exercises are also included, making this an ideal text for undergraduate and graduate courses in atmospheric science and mechanical engineering.
