A good solid air quality reference
I have work in the educational project of pollutions in the factories. please you can help me find the right air quality handbook or references.
The one I am most familiar with is
Workbook of Atmospheric Dispersion Estimates: An Introduction to Dispersion Modeling, Second Edition (Hardcover) by D. Bruce Turner
Gaussian dispersion is what it's all about, as the diagram on the front cover shows. The second edition from 1994, shown here, updates readers on changes to modelling theory and techniques after the original volume was published in 1969. It came with a computer disk whose software you could use to calculate the basic secondary parameters of dispersion, such as plume rise. With it you could test a variety of scenarios quite easily.
The book goes into some of the shortcomings of this modelling as well. Sample problems included with the text give the reader a solid background for using the technical formulae contained in each chapter.
See http://www.amazon.com/Workbook-Atmospheric-Dispersion-Estimates-Introduction /dp/156670023X/sr=1-2/qid=1160197912/ref=sr_1_2/102-7091559-5993711?ie=UTF8& s=books for more details.
Though I have not read all of the text, It does cover the basics of the modelling we carry out - the major dispersion principles.
quality handbook is a good (though expensive) starting point for many young professionals in the field. Search
