This book is comprised of the papers presented at a Symposium on Chemistry and the Enviroment held during the Chemistry International Conference in Brisbane, Australia from 1 to 2 September 1989. The Symposium sought to bring together eminent scientists to identify and discuss major environmental issues of consequence to the AsiaPacific region having a direct association with chemistry.



Urban Air Pollution Modelling

There is a range of urban air pollution models currently in use. Rollback and simple box models give crude estimates of the overall emission reductions required to avoid violations of long-term exposure health standards fors low-reacting pollutants. Gaussian plume models are used to predict both short-term and long-term exposures to pollutants arising from motor vehicles and large point sources such as power stations and mills.
