Special Issue Information
Air pollution is the world’s single greatest environmental risk to health. Some 6.5 million people across the world die prematurely every year from exposure to outdoor and indoor air pollution, and nine out of ten people breathe outdoor air polluted beyond acceptable WHO guidelines levels.
Megacities (metropolitan areas with populations over 10 million) present a major global environmental challenge. Rapid population growth, unsustainable urban development, and increased energy demand by transportation, industrial, commercial, and residential activities, have led to large amounts of emissions to the atmosphere that subject the residents to the health risks associated with harmful pollutants, and impose heavy economic and social costs.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present original research articles and reviews in assessing air pollution in metropolitan areas and megacities, including both experimental and monitoring studies and mathematical/numerical modeling studies. Topics to be covered include gases pollutants and urban aerosol observations, including particulate matter chemical characterization and human exposure assessment.
