This book presents a wealth of new information that enables environmental scientists and authorities to design methods for measuring and modelling emission rates related to specific pollution sources, and thus to generate improved emission inventories and reduction strategies. The text shows how to carry out experiments to verify emission data, including tunnel and open motorway studies, comprehensive city experiments and tracer experiments.

From the reviews:
"This book summarises the advances in the areas of emissions and transport of selected non-greenhouse gases. ... the information concerning the `overlooked' sources of pollution and the uncertainties of the emission data is important for decision-makers and environmental stakeholders. This book is a must for everyone who is closely involved in or remotely related to science and policy on air pollution emissions." (Luc Hens, International Journal of Environment and Pollution, Vol. 25 (1-4), 2005)
