Abstract

Air-quality management problems fall into three main classes: it is difficult to obtain a reliable picture of all the physicochemical processes involved, comprehensive assessments of the costs and benefits of alternative control strategies are not easily made, and the technology for pollution abatement is not yet well established. Various mathematical or formal management models do exist but the overall impact of modeling on decision making has so far been relatively small.

The first aim of the IIASA Workshop on which this volume is based was to bridge the gap between air-quality modeling and management. As described in the ten papers in Part One, Workshop participants examined the goals actually pursued by decision makers, the potential role of mathematical models in air-quality management, and the extent to which modeling has been used in real situations in a number of countries.

The Workshop's second aim, reported in the eight papers in Part Two, was to consider the unusual strategy of real-time emission control. An extended description of the IIASA case study of the Venetian Lagoon area was presented, together with contributions on real-time forecast and control schemes in operation in Japan and Italy.
