Introduction
Introduction

  • Quantitative statistics, models and data collected: Shanghai, China

  • Examines air quality relative to economic growth

  • Studies different techniques to reduce urban air pollution in developing countries without slowing gross domestic product (GDP) growth


Air pollution in china
