Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Agricultural operations, including animal feeding operations, result in concerns of indoor air quality and emissions such as odors, ammonia, dusts, and microbiological agents into the outdoor environment, which can have adverse effects on the environment, animal and human health, and quality of rural living.  Public concerns about the environmental and health effects have grown with the increasing size and geographic concentration of these operations, and rapid growing populations in rural communities. Methods and procedures for measuring, monitoring, analyzing, evaluating and controlling aerial pollution from various agricultural operations need more extensive research and be standardized to obtain comprehensive information about the pollutants and their effects as scientific basis of related public policies and mitigation actions.  This special edition is to highlight the recent research progresses in characterizing and controlling airborne pollutions from agricultural operations. Research papers on following topics are particularly welcome: (1) Scientific basis for estimating the production and emission to the atmosphere of various specified substances from agricultural operations; (2) Practical and reliable methods for measuring and estimating pollution generations and emissions from agricultural operations; and (3) Novel technologies and modified agricultural practices for mitigating emissions.
