Air pollution often results from high-density and high-frequency activities including emissions from motor vehicles, power plants, chemical industries, and other activities, especially in urban areas. Many epidemiological studies have shown that exposure to air pollutants such as particulate matter (PM) can lead to respiratory and circulatory health problems. Urban air pollution and its variation and controlled management is still a significant scientific and environmental policy issue around the world, as variation in air pollutants is complicated due to chemical reactions and human activities. Relevant research continues to be needed in these and related interacting fields to facilitate the understanding of air pollutant variation for improving urban air quality on both local and international scales.
This Special Issue is interested in contributions associated with the understanding and improvement of air pollution in urban areas. There will be a special focus on pollution from cultural activities such as sport or the use of incense and fireworks and new policy developments for controlling the air quality. Studies may model the transport of air pollutants; analyze air pollution impacts; examine new technologies of source reduction or emission control; and quantify the diverse sources of air pollutants and their impacts. Investigations on the effects of cultural activities on indoor air quality are also welcome.
