Introduction to Air Pollution Science: A Public Health Perspective Reviews
The text was required for our air pollution class. I read most of the required readings, and there are overall decent concepts to air pollution. But, being an environmental engineer major, I found it a little too dry and more for laymen to understand.
Comprehensive, elaborate and informative
This is really a mix between a "read" and a "reference". Probably the most complete text out there on Air Pollution Science. I use it all the time, and I've been happy with it.
The good: it covers many topics of interest.
