Finishing this publication is giving me a mix of aid, pride and frus­ tration. aid, for the crowning glory of a venture that has taken too lots of my evenings and weekends and that, within the final a number of months, has develop into virtually an obsession. delight, for the positive feeling that this publication, regardless of its many shortcomings and imbalances, can be of a few aid to the pollution clinical neighborhood. Frustration, for the impossibility of incorporating newly to be had fabric that might require one other significant evaluation of a number of key chap­ ters - an attempt that's presently past my energies yet no longer past my wants. the 1st canovaccio of this ebook got here out in 1980 whilst i used to be invited via Computational Mechanics within the uk to provide my first pollution Modeling direction. The direction fabric, within the type of transparencies, multiplied, yr after 12 months, hence offering a turning out to be operating foundation. In 1985, the ECC Joint learn middle in Ispra, Italy, requested me to arrange a severe survey of mathe­ matical versions of atmospheric pollutants, delivery and deposition. This help gave me the chance to organize a type of "first draft" of the e-book, which I accelerated within the following years.
