Atmospheric Pollution and Environmental Change is an introduction to the major pollutants causing concern today, a description of their sources and how their emissions and concentrations have changed through time.

Approaching atmospheric change in the context of its effects on the natural environment, people and the global climate system, Atmospheric Pollution and Environmental Change examines:

·Atmospheric pollution at global, continental and local scales

·The development of policy at national and international levels

·The uses of computer models to help us understand and forecast the behaviour of pollutants and their impacts

·The success (or otherwise) of policies designed to reduce air pollution and the prospects for the future.

With extensive references to useful web sites and further reading, Atmospheric Pollution and Environmental Change will be of great benefit to senior undergraduate and postgraduate students.
