    Rebecca Altman is an American writer and sociologist. Her work explores the social history of chemistry, plastics, pollution and environmental legacy. She holds a PhD in environmental sociology from Brown University, and serves on the Board of Directors of the Science and Environmental Health Network. Health and Environmental Safety of Nanomaterials addresses concerns about the impact of nanomaterials on the environment and human health, and examines the safety of specific nanomaterials. Understanding the unique chemical and physical properties of nanostructures has led to many developments in the applications of nanocomposite materials.

    The present lecture note on “Air pollution” is therefore, prepared to be used as a teaching material to train mainly environmental health and other students of health category in Ethiopia. It is believed this teaching material plays a significant role to solve the critical shortage of reference books File Size: KB. Environmental noise pollution is an emerging public policy and environmental concern and is considered to be one of the most important environmental stressors affecting public health throughout the world. This book examines environmental noise pollution, its health implications, the role of strategic noise mapping for problem assessment, major.

    Air Pollution: Health and Environmental Impacts examines the effect of this complex problem on human health and the environment in different settings around the world. It not only covers general modeling, monitoring, and characterization techniques but also includes field studies and cases that offer valuable insight into region-specific issues.   Pollution prevention is a major global concern because of its harmful effects on people's health and the environment. Because we are all inhabitants on Earth, everyone is a stakeholder, and every person has something to contribute to advance effective pollution prevention and s:

Environmental Pollution and Health expounds the three main types of environmental pollution—air, water, and land—and their effects on human health. It also focuses on photochemical air pollution, marine pollution, thermal pollution, noise pollution, and radioactive pollution and their effects on human : V K Ahluwalia.

ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION: Ecology and Human Health provides an interdisciplinary approach to the subject of Environment and health integrating biochemical, physiological, pharmacological, toxicological, behavioral and ecological responses to different types of environmental challenges.

The information presented provides modern molecular insights Price: $ Environmental Policy and Public Health covers these topics and also puts Pollution and environmental health book emphasis on wilderness protection. An important focus of the book is an assessment of the role of policy analysis in the formation and implementation of national and local environmental : Paperback.

Priority pollutants, emerging contaminants, and plastics are investigated as are the effects of climate change on pollution. The book concludes by proposing a holistic systems approach, such as Integrated Coastal Zone Management, to address the interconnected scientific challenges of increased human population pressure, pollution, over-exploitation of food resources, and the urgent need for effective public health solutions to be developed from politically and environmentally Price: $ Air Pollution and Environmental Health Editors: Saxena, Pallavi, Srivastava, Anju (Eds.) This book brings together the latest technologies used in air quality assessment and monitoring of pollutants.

Environmental Policy and Public Health examines the main sources of pollution and threats to environmental integrity and explores the consequences of pollution on the environment Cited by: 6. Best Practices for Environmental Health: Environmental Pollution, Protection, Quality and Sustainability is a one source major response to all of the environmental issues that affect global health and the worldwide protection and preservation of the natural environment.

It compiles broad-based and comprehensive coverage of environmental topics. Environmental Pollution: Health and Toxicology offers a comprehensive account of environmental pollution, environmental heath and environmental toxicology.

While introducing different types of Reviews: 1. Environmental and Pollution Science, Third Edition, continues its tradition on providing readers with the scientific basis to understand, manage, mitigate, and prevent pollution across the environment, be it air, land, or water.

Pollution originates from a wide variety of sources, both natural and man-made, and occurs in a wide variety of forms including, biological, chemical, particulate or.

health impacts attributed to environmental pollution (Kimani, ), Human exposure to pollution is believed to be more intense now than at any other time in human existence (Schell et al, ).

Pollution can be made by human activity and by natural forces as well (Fereidoun et al, ; TheCited by: Pollution: Causes, Effects and Control is the fourth edition of a best-selling introductory level book dealing with chemical and radioactive pollution in its broadest sense.

The scope of the book ranges from the sources of pollutants and their environmental behaviour, to their effects on human and non-human receptors, to the technologies and strategies available for control.5/5(2).

Air Pollution and Health is the first fully comprehensive and current account of air pollution science and it impact on human health. It ranges in scope from meteorology, atmospheric chemistry, and particle physics to the causes and scope of allergic reactions and.

I shall be surprised if 'Air Pollution and Health' does not become a standard work which will require regular updating." --Barbara Clayton, UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON, U.K., Past President of the National Society for Clean Air () "This text is a needed addition to the field of air pollution and environmental health.

Pollution in the environment, and the impacts on human health and environmental quality, is a very complex and challenging issue. In this textbook, we will discuss the many different sources and types of pollution in a science-based context, hence the name: Environmental and Pollution Science.

Air Pollution: Health and Environmental Impacts examines the effect of this complex problem on human health and the environment in different settings Reviews: 1. Nutrition & health (Lucent Books) Provides an overview of the effects of pollution and other environmental problems on health, including information on air and water pollution, hazardous chemicals, other risk factors, and ways of preventing pollution and counteracting its influence.

As a starting point, a large number of environmental health related books have been added in alphabetical order, so that members of Goodreads can rank them.

Score A book’s total score is based on multiple factors, including the number of people who have voted for it. Special Issue of Environmental Pollution (Impact Factor: ): One Health management, pollution mitigation, and valorization of waste towards sustainable and zero-waste environment; Call for Papers on Special Issue: Surface Tailored Innovative Materials and Technologies for Wastewater Treatment.

Complex environmental problems are often reduced to an inappropriate level of simplicity. While this book does not seek to present a comprehensive scientific and technical coverage of all aspects of the subject matter, it makes the issues, ideas, and language of environmental engineering accessible and understandable to the nontechnical reader.
