Urban Transportation and Air Pollution synthesizes the state-of-the-art methods for estimating near-road concentrations of roadway emissions. The book provides the information needed to make estimates using methods based on a minimal set of model inputs that can be applied by a wide range of users in many situations. The book begins by discussing the methods to estimate traffic emission under numerous urban driving conditions, then explores the uncertainty of emission models because real-world emissions can vary significantly. The book describes the models that account for the effects of road configurations, such as near-road solid barriers. Addressing transportation-related environmental issues are extremely important worldwide as urban areas are constantly searching for ways to mitigate impacts from transportation sources. Dispersion models are critically useful for estimating the impact of roadway emissions in cities, however many are complex and require detailed inputs not often available. Accompanied by an overview of the meteorology that governs dispersion in cities, the book concludes with presenting dispersion models that link traffic emissions with near road concentrations in urban environments. Compiles and synthesizes into one reference the state of the science methods for estimating roadway emissions Demonstrates with clear examples how the modeling methods reduce uncertainties in real-world problems Emphasizes how local-scale, semi-empirical, steady-state modeling can be applied using only a small set of inputs Offers an overview of the meteorology that governs air pollution dispersion in cities

This edited volume compiles a set of papers that present various applications of spatial analysis, both traditional and contemporary, on diverse subjects in a wide range of contexts. The volume is dedicated to the memory of the late Professor Pavlos Kanaroglou, McMaster University, Canada, who greatly contributed to scientific and applied research on spatial analysis. In his honor, the book offers a selection of various spatial analysis approaches to the study of contemporary urban transportation, land use, and air pollution

Within this context, the overarching goal of this dissertation is to understand how the transportation infrastructure of cities can be designed for improved urban air quality and mitigation of population exposure to traffic pollution. The study area is Hillsborough County, Florida, a sprawling region with limited transit availability and a diverse population along with a mix of urban, suburban, and rural areas. The rank of the county for sprawl and congestion metrics (i.e., yearly delay and travel time index)

All the papers in this volume were presented at a conference on Transportation and Urban Life, held in Munich during the third week of September, 1975. The conference was sponsored by the Special Programme Panels on Systems Science and Human Factors of the Science Committee of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. The distinguishing characteristic of the conference and of this volume lies in the combination of systems science and human factors contributions in the field of urban transportation. The initiative for
