Types of atmospheric pollution. Local atmospheric pollution: This comes from nearby sources such as industrial facilities or vehicles. The most common pollutants on this scale are: particles, nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and metals.

Describe the composition and structure of the atmosphere. Explain the importance of the ozone layer, its depletion, and specific steps taken to address it. Distinguish between indoor and outdoor air pollution and how these compare among industrialized and less industrialized countries ; Identify natural and anthropogenic sources of air pollution.

Photochemistry of Air Pollution provides information pertinent to air pollution and atmospheric chemistry. This book discusses the photochemical reactions produced by sunlight may convert relatively harmless pollutants into substances that constitute a nuisance, create possible health hazard, and cause economic problem to humans.

Organized into 10 chapters, this book starts with an overview of. The highly reactive nature of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) impacts the biosphere by acting as a precursor of ozone and aerosols that influence air quality and climate.

Here, we assess the influence of BVOCs and their oxidation products on ozone formation and to submicron secondary organic aerosol (SOA) mass in a subtropical forest.

A high-resolution proton-transfer. Air pollution is typically separated into two categories: outdoor air pollution and indoor air pollution.

Outdoor air pollution involves exposures that take place outside of the built environment. Examples include fine particles produced by the burning of coal, noxious gases such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide; ground-level ozone and tobacco : Matthew R.
