Acid deposition includes acid rain and other acidic precipitation, but also dry deposition of acidic compounds.
In the context of this "Air Dispersion Modeling" category, air dispersion models may be defined as computerized mathematical calculations for predicting the dispersion behavior of air pollutants emitted into the atmosphere. The many types of air dispersion models include those for modeling: the continuous emission of buoyant pollutant plumes; the non-continuous accidental releases of either buoyant or heavier-than-air (i.e., dense gas) pollutants; puff emissions; point-source emissions; area-source or line-source emissions; mobile transportation-source emissions; fire and smoke emission models; etc. Air quality models for urban airsheds are probably best placed in the "Air Quality" category rather than in this "Air Dispersion" category. Sources for air dispersion modeling information include governmental agencies, research institutes, university faculty and post-graduate students, environmental consultants, industrial dispersion modeling practitioners, and pollution meteorologists.

Emissions trading is an administrative approach used to control pollution by providing economic incentives for achieving reductions in the emission of pollutants.
Please submit sites to this category that concern the study and assessment of factors that affect indoor air quality or discuss methods of monitoring and improving the quality of indoor air.

Sites that sell air filtration products over the Internet for home use should be submitted to Shopping/Home_and_Garden/Climate_Control/Air_Cleaners.

Sites on the topic of asbestos hazards should be submitted to Health/Occupational_Health_and_Safety/Hazardous_Substances/Asbestos.

Sites that discuss general environmental health for humans should be submitted to Science/Environment/Environmental_Health or the appropriate subcategory.

Sites which are primarily concerned with secondhand smoke health issues should be submitted to Society/Issues/Health/Tobacco/Secondhand_Smoke.

This category contains sites concerning the study and assessment of factors that affect indoor air quality and sites that discuss methods of monitoring and improving the quality of indoor air.

Indoor air can contain chemical and biological pollutants such as carbon monoxide, radon, formaldehyde, asbestos, pesticides, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), tobacco smoke, dust mites, mold, and mildew. Methods of removing these contaminants are found through research, development, and information sharing.
This category is for sites focused on the Ozone component of air pollution.
Please submit your site to the most appropriate category. Submitting to an incorrect category may delay review of your site.
Please submit only websites that have English language content to this category and its subcategories. If your site is in a language other than English, please submit it to the appropriate category of World.
This category is for scientific and informational sites about radon, a colorless, odorless, naturally occurring, radioactive gas. It is a significant contaminant that affects indoor air quality worldwide. It is thought to be the second most frequent cause of lung cancer, after cigarette smoking.
