CHAPTER 2 Atmospheric Pollution and Pollutants As seen in Chapter 1, the atmosphere is a mixture of gaseous substances produced over the Earth’s long history by biogenic, geogenic, and atmospheric processes. As humans evolved, the atmosphere began to be affected by human activities. Initially, these effects were small and insignificant. With the enormous growth in human numbers, resource use, and technological advancements, the impact of humans on the atmosphere has been and continues to be significant.

It is widely used as an anesthetic in medicine and dentistry. Human exposure to elevated concentrations produces a kind of hysteria, and as such, it is often referred to as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide concentrations in the atmosphere have been increasing steadily since preindustrial times, from ~280 to ~320 ppbv today. 8 Tg (tetragrams) N/year, with ~70% being produced by nitrification and denitrification processes in undisturbed terrestrial environments and the world’s oceans. About 3 Tg N/year, or ~8%, is associated with agricultural tillage, fertilizer use, and animal wastes.

Consequently, transportation is now the major source of three of the six primary pollutants for which emission estimates are reported. 3) have been considerable (~98% overall). Emission reductions have been particularly significant in the transportation sector with the phaseout of Pb use in gasoline. S. has made significant progress in reducing emissions of Pb and PM10, and modest overall progress in reducing emissions of other primary pollutants and enhancing the quality of ambient air, it is apparent that continuing efforts to limit emissions are required to achieve air quality goals.
