Air Pollution Science for the 21st Century, Volume 1 (Developments in Environmental Science)

Buy

Acid rain, ozone photochemistry, long-range transport of pollutants, greenhouse gas emissions and aerosols dominated tropospheric air pollution research in the last 30 years of the 20^^ century. At the start of the 2V^ century, acid rain is subject to planned improvement in Europe and North America, but is a growing problem in Asia. Ozone pollution is much better understood, but the problem is still with us, and desirable levels are difficult to achieve over continental Europe. The heterogeneous chemistry which is responsible for ozone depletion in the stratosphere is now reasonably well understood, but there is on-going interest in the sources and sinks of CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) replacements in troposphere. There is increasing interest in indoor air quality, and the origin and health implications of atmospheric particles. Perhaps most important on a global perspective, intensive research has not yet determined the relationship between greenhouse gases, aerosols and surface temperature. The climatic implications of these are now more urgent than ever.

In 1998 Atmospheric Environment began to encourage the submission of Millennial Reviews on a range of key topics. These papers assessed our knowledge at the end of the 20* century, and looked forward to the 2P^ century. The Millennial Reviews have been collected together as the main chapters of this book, and the authors of some of the earlier papers have supplied short up-date articles. These are included as short appendices to the main articles.

In 1995 Atmospheric Environment also introduced an exciting feature, the New Directions columns. These short articles were written in a journalistic style, and authors were encouraged to speculate and express controversial opinions. Initially these articles were all invited but, as the column became better known, submitted articles became the norm. These are now published at least once a month. In 1999 a selection of Future Directions columns were invited, where the authors were encouraged to look ahead to possible developments in air pollution science at the end of the 2V^ century. A group of recent New and Future Directions columns have been chosen for this book, to complement the Millennial Reviews. We hope that both the reviews and the thought provoking essays will stimulate the imagination of current researchers, and encourage breadth of vision in future research.

IPv6 Security
IPv6 Security

Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the next version of the protocol that is used for communications on the Internet. IPv6 is a protocol that has been in existence for many years, but it has not yet replaced IPv4. IPv4 has some limitations that were not anticipated when it was first created. Because IPv6 overcomes many of these...
