    The goal of protecting and enhancing air quality to protect and promote human health and public welfare 1 has been consistently set forward in the United States during the latter part of the twentieth century. To accomplish this goal, numerous regulations and standards, a broad suite of management tools, and several monitoring networks to track progress have been established. Ambient air quality standards (AAQS) define clean air, and are established to protect even the most sensitive individuals in our communities. An air quality standard defines the maximum amount of a pollutant that can be present in outdoor air without harm to the public's health. Both the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) are.

    Book Description. The fifth edition of a bestseller, Air Quality provides students with a comprehensive overview of air quality, the science that continues to provide a better understanding of atmospheric chemistry and its effects on public health and the environment, and the regulatory and technological management practices employed in achieving air quality goals. Pollutants generated indoors can lead to a variety of symptoms and health conditions. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs), combustion byproducts and airborne particulate matter are known to trigger nausea, headaches, asthma, respiratory irritation and ambient outdoor air is often better quality, natural ventilation methods, operable doors and windows, and general building.
