Air pollution causes considerable damage to human health, flora and fauna and materials. The damage costs are external costs, to the extent that they are not included in the prices of goods, i.e. This model links the emissions of five common air pollutants to estimates of ambient concentrations, exposures, physical health environmental impacts, and monetary damage.

This paper considers the following local air pollutants: nitrogen oxides (NO x), sulfur dioxide (SO 2), fine particulate matter (PM ), ammonia (NH 3), and volatile Cited by: 8. Finally it must be mentioned that a major part of the literature on economic valuation relies on constructing dose-response function and damage functions.

They both reveal a technical or a biological relationship between quantities of a pollutant that affects a receptor with the physical impact on this receptor (Mitchell & Carson, ).Cited by: 1.

Introduction. Air pollution is the presence of contaminants or substances in the air that interfere with human health or welfare, or produce other harmful environmental effects. 1 An air pollutant is interfering with a desired condition that, at a minimum, provides for air quality that supports human and other life.

This study represents a step forward in methodological development of air pollution damage estimation. estimate of the cost of pollution in Canada.

Only air pollution has been thoroughly studied, and then only for certain pollutants Beyond air pollution, surprisingly little is known about pollution’s costs, in spite of the wide range of pollutants Canadians are exposed to and the numerous ways in which their welfare is impacted.

Some of. Energy Futures and Urban Air Pollution: - sions (e.g., emissions reductions recommended through a SIP).

Source-oriented models also effectively link source and receptor for secondary PM air pollutants (e.g., sulfate, nitrate, SOA) (Russell, ) but are not as effective for tracking primary species.

The Economic Cost of Damage from. Physical stress is a disturbance in which there is an intense exposure to kinetic energy, which causes damage to habitats and ecosystems. Examples include such disruptive events as a hurricane or tornado, a seismic sea wave (tsunami), the blast of a volcanic eruption, an explosion, or trampling by heavy machinery or : Bill Freedman.

We model intraurban intake fraction (iF) values for distributed ground-level emissions in all global cities with more than inhabitants, encompassing a total population of billion. For conserved primary pollutants, population-weighted median, mean, and interquartile range iF values 39, and 14–52 ppm, respectively, where 1 ppm signifies 1 g inhaled/t by: Physical fitness is a general state of health and well-being or specifically the ability to perform aspects of sports or occupations.

Physical fitness is generally achieved. Children’s health is determined by the interaction of a multitude of influences, reflecting complex processes. We divide these influences into biological, behavioral, and environmental (physical and social) even though our model of children’s health views their effects as highly intertwined and difficult to isolate.

This chapter provides a summary of published literature and a framework. The amendments to the Clean Air Act required EPA to set National Ambient Air Quality Standards for certain pollutants known to be hazardous to human health.

EPA has identified and set standards to protect human health and welfare for six pollutants: ozone, carbon monoxide, total suspended particulates, sulfur dioxide, lead, and nitrogen oxide. Indoor exposure to air pollutants causes very significant damage to health glo- bally – especially in developing countries.

The chemicals reviewed in this volume are common indoor air pollutants in all regions of the world. Despite this, public health awareness on indoor air pollution has lagged behind that on outdoor air pollution. Cancer is a disease caused by genetic changes leading to uncontrolled cell growth and tumor formation.

The basic cause of sporadic (non-familial) cancers is DNA damage [citation needed] and genomic instability. A minority of cancers are due to inherited genetic mutations. Most cancers are related to environmental, lifestyle, or behavioral exposures.

Cancer is generally not contagious in humans. The evaluation in the EcoSense model includes damage from air-pollutant emissions like SO 2 and NO x (PM 10 is negligible compared to these) for the major receptors: humans, crops and materials.

For each of the pollutants, high, medium and low specific external costs are derived per country. Air Pollution: Health and Environmental Impacts provides an invaluable and timely contribution to the urgent environ­mental challenges facing our society today.

As illustrated in the book, we need integrated, interdisciplinary approaches to address the effects of human-induced activities. Mario J. Molina San Diego, California. More than half of the world’s population now lives in cities as a result of unprecedented urbanization during the second half of the 20th century.

The urban population is projected to increase to 68% bywith most of the increase occurring in Asia and Africa. Population growth and increased energy consumption in urban areas lead to high levels of atmospheric pollutants that harm human Cited by: 2.

The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is a cytosolic transcription factor that is activated by a broad variety of exogenous and endogenous small molecular weight compounds [11,12].In the mids, AHR was identified as a 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD)-binding receptor protein that regulates xenobiotic metabolism and critically shapes the toxicity of dioxins, polycyclic aromatic Cited by: 1.

Air pollution management aims at the elimination, or reduction to acceptable levels, of airborne gaseous pollutants, suspended particulate matter and physical and, to a certain extent, biological agents whose presence in the atmosphere can cause adverse effects on human health (e.g., irritation, increase of incidence or prevalence of.

Cigarette smoking, one of the most pervasive habits in society, presents many well established health risks. While lung cancer is probably the most common and well documented disease associated with tobacco exposure, it is becoming clear from recent research that many other diseases are causally related to smoking.

Whether from direct smoking or inhaling environmental tobacco Cited by:   The massive increase in emissions of air pollutants due to economic and industrial growth in the last century has made air quality an environmental problem of the first order in a large number of regions of the world.

A body of evidence suggests that major changes to our world are occurring and involve the atmosphere and its associated by: As air pollutants can damage a number of different receptors, the task of analysing the impacts of any given emission is fairly complex.

To allow such complex analysis of external costs, a tool has been developed during the last 10 years in a major coordinated EU research effort, the EcoSense model. Fires are adverse events with tangible costs for property and human life. Quantification of the immediate and direct costs of fire provide a metric for understanding the social and economic impact of fire and for assessing progress in fire prevention and protection.

In addition to their physical costs, fires have a range of less immediate and obvious adverse consequences on the natural Cited by: 5. From what has been said so far in this chapter, it is clear that the instructions for development do not reside wholly in the genes or even in the zygote.

The developing organism is often sensitive to cues from the environment. However, this sensitivity makes the organism vulnerable to environmental changes that can disrupt : Scott F Gilbert. Air pollution management aims at the elimination, or reduction to acceptable levels, of airborne gaseous pollutants, suspended particulate matter and physical and, to a certain extent, biological agents whose presence in the atmosphere can cause adverse effects on human health (e.g., irritation, increase of incidence or prevalence of respiratory diseases, morbidity, cancer, excess mortality.
