Editorial Reviews


"...will be highly valued in environmental science curricula for its integrated approach to the scientific dimensions of all aspects of the atmospheric environment..." Chemical Heritage

"It integrates conventional textbook material on the science of air pollution with a wealth of historical information on the key discoveries in the field, brought to life with potted biographies and anecdotal sketches, all vividly illustrated with photographs, figures, satellite images and more...sufficiently rigorous and comprehensive to be useful to students of environmental science and others with its up-to-date material, easy style, problems and examples and outstanding illustrations...packed with enough quantitative and qualitative information to form the basis of a lecture course, or to act as a primer for general reader interested in the whole issue of air pollution. I do not think that there is a better book for engaging interest in the science of air pollution and I, for one, will certainly be recommending it to my second-year students." Chemistry in Britain

"Jacobson, a prolific and well-regarded author, offers a clearly structured book designed for use in courses.... Recommended." Choice

"...I will be very surprised if this does not become one of the standard texts in this field, especially for environmental science courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level, as well as a general reference and sourcebook for anybody interested in the history of airborne pollutants and their study, pollution meteorologists and atmospheric chemists." Weather

"...provides a novel perpsective on air pollution by examining the historical developments of air pollution science and regulation prior to presenting information on the major air pollution issues of today...insightful interpretations...[The book] teaches a valuable lesson about historical successes in controlling air pollution. This will likely make the text well suited for individuals or courses with an interest in the history of air pollution science and regulation." EOS

"Mark Jacobson's new undergraduate textbook Atmospheric Pollution: History, Science, and Regulation captures important parts of the vast panorama of science and human experience related to the atmosphere...His book covers a field so large that no previous text has satisfactorily reflected the full array of problems and issues...[it] may be the best available...The text is highlighted with interesting stories that dig deeper than most anecdotes...The book carefully builds a framework for understanding atmospheric issues, and that framework provides a solid basis for examining what might be done to address those is a well-rounded introduction to problems of the atmosphere and offers rich material for students contemplating their solutions." Physics Today

Book Description

Atmospheric Pollution provides an accessible introduction to the five major atmospheric pollution topics: urban outdoor air pollution, indoor air pollution, acid deposition, stratospheric ozone reduction, and global climate change. The book contains numerous student examples and problems, over 200 color illustrations, and will form an ideal introductory textbook for a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses on atmospheric pollution. It will also form a valuable reference text for researchers, and an introduction to the subject for general audiences.

Atmospheric Pollution is an excellent primer and reference on air pollution and air quality issues facing the world today. Written essentially as a textbook, nevertheless, it is highly readable and a good, basic, factual overview of the pollutants, pollutant processes, laws and regulations, and current issues in air quality protection.
