AbstractWhen humans alter a natural landscape into an urbanized one, a number of atmospheric environmental impacts result. Perhaps the most potentially serious of these impacts is air pollution. In the 'chemical soup' which overlies the Fraser River delta region, people are most concerned about ozone and inhalable particulates because of their effects on the ecosystem (ozone primarily) and human health (ozone and particulates). Steps being taken by the regional government should reduce or at least stabilize air-pollution levels in the region.
