Urban air pollutants arise from a wide variety of sources although they are mainly a result of combustion processes.

Today, the largest source of pollution in most urban areas is motor vehicles, and to a lesser extent c-generated pollutants include nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds and particulates.

1970-79 book Aviation may be the answer to many of contemporary problems in and around cities: congestion, air and noise pollution, reduction of an individual’s available quality time, poor urban planning that prioritizes cars, urban high- and low-density sprawls, high mobility, : Olja Cokorilo.

Air quality problems such as smog and acid rain result from the release of pollutants into the atmosphere. The majority of these pollutants come from human activities, such as transportation, the burning of fuels for electricity and heating, and industry. Natural sources such as forest fires can sometimes be substantial.

Behera, Rajasekhar Balasubramanian. Fourteen organophosphate esters (OPEs) were measured in the filter fraction of active air samples from yearly ship-based sampling campaigns (–) and two land-based stations in the Canadian Arctic, to assess trends and long-range transport potential of OPEs.

Four OPEs were detected in up to 97% of the samples, seven in 50% or less of the samples, and three Cited by: The environmental quality component is based on the state of air and water. Urban air quality, assessed in terms of average exposure to PM pollution, is below the OECD average, while perceived water quality (measured through public satisfaction) is significantly above it.
