This comprehensive reference work illustrates the state of the art of laser-induced analytical methods in environmental and life sciences via an interdisciplinary approach. Key techniques for remote sensing in the atmosphere, as well as diagnostic methods for soil, water and air contamination and exhaled breath are described. Each a prominent scientists, the authors report on their current research; demonstrate that multi-disciplinary applications are possible; and employ examples on how existing environmental diagnostic methods have found their way into life sciences.
