Introduction

TO THE SCIENTIFIC STUDY OF ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTION Edited by B. M. McCORMAC Lockheed Palo Alto Research Laboratory, Palo Alto, Calif. , U. S. A. D. REIDEL PUBLISHING COMPANY DORDRECHT-HOLLAND Library of Congress Catalog Card Number 70-170340 ISBN-13: 978-90-277-0243-2 e-ISBN-13: 978-94-010-3137-0 DOl: 10. 1007/978-94-010-3137-0 All Rights Reserved Copyright © 1971 by D. Reidel Publishing Company, Dordrecht, Holland Softcover reprint of the hardcover 1 st edition 1971 No part of this book may be reproduced in any form, by print, photoprint, microfilm, or any other means, without written permission from the publisher PREFACE The Editor undertook the preparation of this book for two reasons. The first was to fulfill the need for an introductory level book combining the multidisciplinary aspects of atmospheric pollution. This book does cover most of the key facets: sources and sinks of atmospheric pollutants, atmospheric chemistry, transport and meteorology, effects on human beings and vegetation, and surveillance of air quality. The length of the book was purposely limited so that the cost would be within the means of most interested users. The second reason for preparing this book was stimulated by my mother-in-law, Mrs Clayton D. Root, Councilwoman and member of the Planning Commission of Crown Point, Indiana, who pointed out that all governmental levels must make decisions affecting the atmospheric quality of their regions of responsibility and yet have little information on atmospheric pollution for their assistance. For the most part the achievement of air quality standards is a local problem and every locality is unique.
