By Paolo Zannetti

Finishing this booklet is giving me a mix of aid, pride and frus­ tration. aid, for the of entirety of a undertaking that has taken too a lot of my evenings and weekends and that, within the final numerous months, has develop into virtually an obsession. delight, for the confident feeling that this e-book, regardless of its many shortcomings and imbalances, may be of a few support to the pollution clinical neighborhood. Frustration, for the impossibility of incorporating newly on hand fabric that will require one other significant assessment of a number of key chap­ ters - an attempt that's presently past my energies yet no longer past my wishes. 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 path fabric, within the kind of transparencies, extended, yr after 12 months, hence supplying a turning out to be operating foundation. In 1985, the ECC Joint examine middle in Ispra, Italy, requested me to arrange a severe survey of mathe­ matical versions of atmospheric pollutants, delivery and deposition. This aid gave me the chance to organize a kind of "first draft" of the e-book, which I elevated within the following years.
