By R.R. Scorer (Auth.)

Written through a unusual foreign scientist, who has made basic contributions at the climatic courting among pollution and meteorology, the e-book presents a compendium of lifelike examples of pollution behaviour. After beginning with a basic survey he's taking us via a learn of diffusion mechanisms together with pollutants from business chimneys and highway site visitors. pollution meteorology covers boundary layer scaling, pre-processing meteorological info, air caliber administration, city meteorology, and atmospheric chemistry (oxides of nitrogen are critical to ozone chemistry) with debts of general pollution episodes and a quick dictionary of air pollutants.

  • Provides a compendium of real looking examples of pollution behaviour
  • Includes a complete learn of diffusion mechanisms, together with pollutants from commercial chimneys and street traffic
  • Covers boundary layer scaling, pre-processing meteorological information, air caliber administration, city meteorology, pollution and atmospheric chemistry

Our subject is dominated by variations in the weather and climate from place to place and time to time. Furthermore the observations that have to be envisaged in planning any regulatory system are already installed in very few places. Models for air pollution are essentially built around a few sets of observations, and there are no generalising laws to which new observations must in all cases be fitted, yet this is the case with the production of a weather forecast on which ANY prediction of air pollution has to be based.

The cooling by the river has since this picture been replaced by cooling towers, taller chimneys and greater production of power. A particular problem with the heat loss through a thin metal chimney wall was that if the fuel contains a lot of sulphur, when the furnace is first lit up from cold there could be a considerable condensation of oily sulphuric acid on the inside of the cold chimney. Then when the system became warm and the draught increased to working speed these acid droplets were carried out of the chimney top and fell to the ground close by.
