Special Issue "Air Quality in the Asia-Pacific Region"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018) | Viewed by 27431
Over the last couple of decades, the Asia-Pacific region has emitted the highest amounts of air pollutants and greenhouse gases in the world, which causes serious urban, and regional air pollution as well as contributing to regional and global climate change. The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide updated information on the scientific evidence regarding the current situation of air quality in mega-cities and other urban/rural areas in the Asia-Pacific region, and its impacts on human health and ecosystems. We also aim to investigate the air pollution–climate interaction, and to enhance policy dialogue through discussion on air pollution mitigation measures and co-beneficial control of air pollution and climate change.
Studies on temporal and spatial variations of PM2.5, O3, PAHs and other pollutants including their precursors, and their emissions, transport and source allocation, by means of field observation and chemical-transport modelling, are highly welcome for this issue, as well as policy-related studies including the co-control strategy of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs).
This Special Issue aims to highlight air pollution in the Asia-Pacific region, which has been a focus of international concern regarding the atmospheric environment in recent years.
