The authors draw parallels between sampling, analysis, and impact of airborne toxics and particulate matter with the COVID-19 pandemic. Airborne viruses and fine particulate matter, which are of similar size, have remarkable parallels in how they are transmitted and accumulated in the respiratory tract. FEATURESAssesses exposures of people and wildlife to airborne chemicalsIncludes case study applications, with relevant data summarized for pesticides and contaminants in airDiscusses approaches to modeling pesticides' and contaminants' dispersion and fate in airIncludes an assessment of the physicochemical properties of pesticides and contaminants that influence sampling and atmospheric mobility and fateThe authors are global experts in air contaminant research, and this book is well organized and helpful for people interested in regulatory, health, and other topics related to pesticides and contaminants in air.
