Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution 2010: Part a: Ozone and Particulate Matter by United Nations: Economic Commission for Europe: Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution (Paperback, 2011)
This is one volume of a four-volume set that presents a state-of-the-science assessment of the intercontinental transport of air pollutants across the Northern Hemisphere. It addresses ozone and particulate matter (Part A), mercury (Part B), and persistent organic pollutants (Part C). Part D is a synthesis of the main findings and recommendations organised around a series of policy-relevant questions. Ozone, particulate matter, mercury, and persistent organic pollutants are significant environmental problems in many regions of the world. Without further international cooperation to mitigate intercontinental flows of air pollution, many nations are t able currently to meet their own goals and objectives for protecting public health and environmental quality. Therefore, cooperation to decrease emissions that contribute to intercontinental transport of air pollution is very important for both source and receptor countries.
