An overview of air quality III: mercury, trace elements, and particulate matter
The Air Quality III Conference on Mercury, Trace Elements, and Particulate Matter was held September 9-12, 2002, in Arlington, Virginia. Over 400 participants from 185 organizations representing 15 countries and 36 states attended, bringing together leaders from research, industry, and government to address air quality issues concerning health and ecosystems, emission prevention and control, measurement methods, and atmospheric reactions and modeling. This conference series, which is next held in September 2003, examines the ways in which scientific research and technology development drive the development of control technologies that define the limits of achievable regulation. The following is an overview of mercury and particulate issues discussed at the Air Quality III Conference. (C) 2004 Published by Elsevier B.V.
