Special Issue Information

Atmospheric pollution is considered as a major problem of environmental health. The growing public concerns, evidence from research and increasing scientific knowledge are all driving widespread discussions on air pollution, climate change, and associated health impacts. Many air pollutants and greenhouse gases have common sources and diffuse globally, interact in the atmosphere, and jointly affect ecosystems. Thus, air pollution is also part of climate change. Therefore, the aim of this special issue is to bring together research findings focusing research and development on air pollution control, greenhouse gas mitigation and associated health impacts. Literature review papers in the relevant fields are also welcomed.

Original research papers or reviews are invited in the following themes, which is not exhaustive:
  • Cost effectiveness (Cost effective mitigation of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions).
  • Air pollution (Consideration of emissions inventory of air pollutants, policies, measures and control techniques for air pollution, air pollution modelling, dispersion of air pollutants, environmental effects of air pollutants, green technologies of air pollution prevention, etc.)
  • Climate change (Consideration of emissions inventory of greenhouse gas emissions, policies, mitigation measures and adaptation strategies, legal issues related to the flexibility mechanisms of the Kyoto Protocol, etc.)
  • Health impacts (impact of air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions on human health)

Keywords

  • Air pollution
  • Climate change
  • Emission inventory
  • Health impacts
