Book Description:
The rapid growth of industrialization and urbanization and a significant increase in agricultural production in East Asia have caused a remarkable increase in SO2 and Nox emissions during past several decades. Air pollution is an emerging important environmental problem in Asia as a whole and especially in East Asia. Ever growing emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, ammonia and ground-level ozone concentration in many big cities in this region make the people worry on the synergetic effects of various pollutants. Emission projections indicate that potentially large increases in emissions may occur during the next 25-50 years in Asia, especially in China, Thailand, India, etc, in accordance with the planned development programs. If this occurs (the probability is very high), the negative impacts that have been experienced in Europe and North America (USA and Canada) during this century will become increasingly apparent in large parts of Asia within the next 50-100 years. According to the present estimates SO2 emission in Asia will surpass the combined emissions of North America and Europe by the year 2000 if the current growth rate of energy consumption keeps to remain. This volume provides invaluable information in developing a more profound insight into the complexity of air pollution and its interaction with ecosystems in East Asia.
