Dust, Aerosols and Heavy Haze over China: Sources, Transformation, Transport, and Impact on the Regional and Global Environment (Hardback)Guoshun Zhuang (author)
- Coming soon
This book systematically investigates the characteristics, distribution, transformation, source and sink of aerosols over typical regions in China based on long-term observations, revealing that the secondary aerosol, dust, and biomass burning are the main causes of widespread smog. It proposes that organic aerosol, sulfate, nitrate and black carbon are the main extinction components in smog. In addition it quantitatively determines the influence of transport on local and regional air quality, and argues that traffic emissions are the triggering factor for the wide range of smog in China. It also demonstrates the mixing and interaction mechanism of dust with anthropogenic pollutants in long-distance transport and the air-sea exchange. The research findings and the large number of first-hand data provided make this a valuable reference resource for those involved in atmospheric science, especially basic atmospheric chemistry and aerosol science research.
