Dean of Engineering, College of Engineering, and Professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, The University of Tennessee, 124 Perkins Hall, Knoxville, TN 37996.† Tel: (865) 974-5321; Fax: (865) 974-8890; email: email@example.com
Dr. Davis is responsible for overall administration of the College of Engineering at UTK.† Within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, he conducts research with emphasis on air quality management and air pollution control. His research areas include modeling of ozone formation in the environment; control of air pollution control and monitoring of emissions from combustion processes including coal-fired boilers, incinerators, and diesel engines; air filtration (indoor air filtration and fabric filtration); mobile source emissions and other air pollution related research areas. He was co-editor of the Air Pollution Engineering Manual published jointly by the Air and Waste Management Association and Van Nostrand Reinhold Publishers in 1992, and editor of the Second edition of the manual, published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. in April 2000.
He is coauthor of the third edition of the text AIR POLLUTION: Its Origin and Control (by Wark, Warner, and Davis). The third edition, originally published by Addison Wesley Longman is available from Prentice Hall. A Korean edition was published in 2004.† He was the Technical Program Chair of the 89th Annual Meeting of the Air and Waste Management Association's Annual Meeting held June 23-28, 1996 in Nashville TN and is currently a member of the Editorial Review Board of the Journal of the Air and Waste Management Association.† He is also is a member of the State of Tennessee Air Pollution Control Board (Nashville TN) and a member of the Knox County Air Pollution Control Board in Knox County, Tennessee.††
Dr. Davis is currently Chair of the American Society for Engineering Educationís Engineering Research Council (2010-2012), serves on the ASEE Board of Directors (2010-2012 and is Vice President of Institutional Councils for 2010-2011.†

A list of sources of air quality and air pollution control information is included below which I have found to be useful and interesting. A brief description of each location is included:
AIR and WASTE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION:
The Air and Waste Management Association is a professional association of over 9,000 individuals associated with federal, state, and local governments, universities, industries and consulting and engineering firms dedicated to improving air quality and waste management. The A&WMA Information Hot Line includes information on upcoming conferences, job openings, and technical publications, including abstracts from A&WMA conferences, proceedings, journals and books. Click here to go to the A&WMA Web Page http://www.awma.org
The AirData web site is a subsystem of the Aerometric Information Retrieval System which is the repository for air quality data for the U.S. EPA. AirData contains maps showing the current location of the largest sources of emissions, monitoring site locations, and nonattainment areas for the criteria pollutants. It also includes air monitoring data, emissions data for criteria pollutants and emissions data for hazardous pollutants. Click here to go to the AirData web site http://www.epa.gov/air/data
The State and Territorial Air Pollution Program Administrators (STAPPA) and the Association of Local Air Pollution Control Officials (ALAPCO) are the two national associations representing air pollution control agencies in the 54 states and territories and over 150 major metropolitan areas across the United States. The associations serve to encourage the exchange of information among air pollution control officials, to enhance communication and cooperation among federal, state and local regulatory agencies, and to promote good management of our air resources. The site contains links to state and local agencies and other air quality related sites. Click here to go to the STAPPA/ALAPCO site: http://www.cleanairworld.org/
This site provides access to a variety of USEPA services and technical information areas on all phases of environmental areas including air, water, and waste. It also provides access to the EPA servers. Click here to go to the EPA http://www.epa.gov/
The Technology Transfer Network (TTN) is particularly useful for those needing information on air quality regulations, emission factors, or descriptions of air pollution sources. Click here to go to the TTN.
The U.S. EPA Office of Transportation and Air Quality contains information on mobile sources including on-road and non-road mobile sources.† Click here to go to OTAQ
This site provides graphs and trends information on the National Atmospheric Deposition Program for the United States. Isopleth maps are included for pH, SO4, NO3, Cl, NH4, and Ca. Click here to go to the NADP NETWORK
This web site, maintained by the U.S. EPA, contains air quality dipsersion models, including the downloadable source codes, documentation, and user's manuals. Click here to go to SCRAM
