Particulate Matter Science for Policy Makers: A NARSTO Assessment was commissioned by NARSTO, a cooperative public-private sector organization of Canada, Mexico and the United States. It is a concise and comprehensive discussion of the current understanding by atmospheric scientists of airborne particulate matter (PM). Its goal is to provide policy makers who implement air-quality standards with this relevant and needed scientific information. The primary audience for this volume will be regulators, scientists, and members of industry, all of whom have a stake in effective PM management. It will also inform exposure and health scientists, who investigate causal hypotheses of health impacts, characterize exposure, and conduct epidemiological and toxicological studies.

Industry Reviews

'... concise and comprehensive discussion of the current understanding of airborne particulate matter ... The technical quality of the book is very good. A lot of flow diagrams, schemes, tables, figures and images support the information content ... It is really necessary as information source for each policy maker but also for each library of research institutes.' Meteorologische Zeitschrift
