Focuses not only on various methods of sampling and analyzing gaseous pollutants in the atmosphere but also emphasizes an understanding of the chemical and physical processes that occur. Evaluates current measurement methods; reports on the results of recent research; and surveys the challenges that lie ahead. Of particular interest is an expert overview of the sources, occurrences and characteristics of volatile organic compounds in indoor environments--a growing public health concern.
