The usually active open access journal Atmosphere of MDPI, has just published a new interesting book on Environmental Odour edited by Günther Schauberger, Martin Piringer, Chuandong Wu and Jacek Koziel. This book is a reprint of articles previously printed in other special issues, and it is available to download for free here.
The book, “Environmental Odour”, comprises one review and nine original papers, and it is the follow up of other special editions published in the past, such as this one and this one. For any odour manager interested in staying up to date on this issue, this is a very good starting point.
This book deals with the entire spectrum, from the estimation or measurement of odour emissions and the dispersion of odorous substances in the atmosphere to the determination of setback or separation distances and an estimation of odour annoyance levels in a neighbourhood.
Each research paper had a specific focus; most consider one element of this chain, while some others try to cover the entire chain. In particular, this book encouraged contributions dealing with field trials and dispersion modelling to assess the degree of annoyance and the quantitative success of abatement measures.
