This series presents the fundamentals of emerging issues in environmental and occupational health. It specifically focuses on their impact to human health. With advances in analytical technology, our understanding of environmental health issues has dramatically increased over the past several years. Topics such as drinking water treatment in austere environments, air pollution in urban and developing areas, indoor air quality, and emerging contaminants in wastewater treatment are relevant to today’s researchers and policy makers. Likewise, protection for workers’ health is ever-increasing, and this series addresses the state-of-the-art in topics such as respiratory protection, radiation protection, engineering controls, and management techniques.
The 2020 Taylor and Francis Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Professor Adedeji B.
