An Introduction to Urban Air Quality
Background to Urban Air Quality:
Urban air quality is a label used to describe air quality in cities and large towns where there is a particular concern about the exposure of populations to air pollutants. The effect of city infrastructure and layout on air flow patterns, and the large concentration of certain types of emissions such as domestic heating and transport, makes urban air quality non-compliances difficult to resolve. Each city may require a unique management approach to reduce population exposure.
