Environmental Chemistry: Asian Lessons by V.N. Bashkin

By V.N. Bashkin

After educating environmental sessions at universities in Seoul and Bangkok for 3 years, and lecturing in U.S. and eu universities, Bashkin (Moscow nation U.) learned that almost all textbooks on environmental pollutants depend seriously on North American and eu examples. Bashkin's textbook positive factors in general info from the Asian zone, and should be quite beautiful to English-speaking Asian scholars in simple and utilized environmental chemistry classes.

Consider the role of industrial production in environmental pollution.

Brief analysis of the tables confirms that three above-mentioned main regions of pollution (Europe, the Urals industrial region, and East Asia) have a definite influence on each other. There is a considerable transport from Europe to the East. In particular, up to 40% of the oxidized nitrogen deposition onto the European territory of Russia comes from Europe. For the Asian part of Russia this fraction is about 10%. Corresponding figures for sulfur and ammonia are not so large, which is explained by comparably short transport distance of these species.
