Haze, on the other hand, typically refers to the large-scale, low-level pollution-caused visibility reduction observed during the summer months over much of the Midwest, Northeast, and Southeast United States. Nontraditional Air Pollutants In traditional discussions of air pollution, pollutants are usually characterized as being particulate or gaseous-phase substances. Air quality can, however, be degraded by other factors, such as noise, heat, ionizing radiation, and electromagnetic fields associated with the transmission and use of electricity.

Air quality can, however, be degraded by other factors, such as noise, heat, ionizing radiation, and electromagnetic fields associated with the transmission and use of electricity. With the exception of noise (which is discussed extensively in Chapter 12), nontraditional air pollutants will receive relatively little discussion in this book.
