The Transport Sector as a Source of Air Pollution

  title={The Transport Sector as a Source of Air Pollution},
  author={Emma J. Hutchinson and Jennifer S. Mindell},
Transport first became a significant source of air pollution after the problems of sooty smog from coal combustion had largely been solved in western European and North American cities. Since then, emissions from road, air, rail and water transport have been partly responsible for acid deposition, stratospheric ozone depletion and climate change. Most recently, road traffic exhaust emissions have been the cause of much concern about the effects of urban air quality on human health and… CONTINUE READING
