From the Back Cover
The end result of policy-related experimental and theoretical scientific work on the abatement of atmospheric emissions is a hierarchy of computer models that can be used to analyse and predict the behaviour of pollutants on urban, local regional and global scales. Such models are required to simulate an extremely complex natural situation in which a non-linear chemistry must be included together with the vagaries of the meteorology and the terrain. To this must be added the uncertainties in the data provided to the model, particularly in the estimates of the emissions of pollutants and their precursors, both of anthropogenic and natural origin. This book describes recent advances in the development and application of models on all scales, and in the techniques for the estimation and verification of emissions. It includes reviews of recent work together with detailed results and so provides a useful picture of the field in a European context. This book is Volume 7 of the series on Transport and Chemical Transformation of Pollutants in the Troposphere.
