In this thoroughly revised, updated and expanded edition of his classic textbook Atmospheric Pollution (1987), Derek Elsom provides the clearest introduction available to the atmospheric pollution problem, its causes and effects, and approaches to its control. Atmospheric Pollution - A Global Problem retains the clear structure of the widely-praised earlier edition, but includes new sections covering urban smog alert systems, the US Clean Air Act, the rising pollution in the UK and Europe, the pollution problems of Eastern Europe, and other topics of current concern. The discussions of acid rain, the Antartic ozone hole and global warming have been greatly expanded, and new appendices include a glossary of key terms and a list of contact addresses. The text is now comprehensively illustrated with 39 photographs, 110 diagrams and 47 tables. Atmospheric Pollution - A Global Problem will be welcomed by students and specialists alike in geography and related environmental science fields, as well as by anyone with an interest in human-environment issues.
