Well founded and reliable emission data are necessary to implement strategies to investigate and control air pollution caused by the transport and chemical transformation of air pollutants. This book contains a wealth of new information that enables environmental scientists and authorities dealing with air pollution to design methods for measuring and modelling emission rates related to specific pollution sources, and thus to generate improved emission inventories and reduction strategies. Furthermore, it provides information for policy makers and environmental stakeholders concerning the main sources of emissions and the uncertainties of emission data. Scientists will obtain the know-how to carry out experiments to verify emission data, including tunnel and open motorway studies, comprehensive city experiments and tracer experiments. Readers interested in policy applications have access here to valuable information about the sources of air pollutants.

From the reviews:

"This book summarises the advances in the areas of emissions and transport of selected non-greenhouse gases. ... the information concerning the `overlooked' sources of pollution and the uncertainties of the emission data is important for decision-makers and environmental stakeholders. This book is a must for everyone who is closely involved in or remotely related to science and policy on air pollution emissions." (Luc Hens, International Journal of Environment and Pollution, Vol. 25 (1-4), 2005)
