Development at all front including industry is must for the society, however, it is mandatory that the human race is not a danger at the price of long strides of development. Now it is high time that we pay due attention for the abatement of ever escalating pollution. In this context, this book, dealing mainly with the menace of air pollution has been divided in two sections namely: (1) Sources, effects, various means to mitigate and monitoring of air pollution (2) Assessment, monitoring and solutions for air pollution. It is intended to supply scientific documentation of various aspects of air pollution. It is expected that this compiled information will be of great importance to scientists, teachers, policy makers, technologists, government agencies, environmentalists as well as the students of various universities and research institutions. This will provide ample material for generating environmental awareness among the citizens and society concerned with this alarming problem of ever increasing air pollution.
