This book covers

  • Chemical evolution of the atmosphere
  • Atmospheric energy
  • Biogeochemical cycles
  • Sources of air pollution
  • Tropospheric photochemistry
  • Chemistry of the stratosphere
  • Atmospheric particulate matter
  • Global air pollution problems
  • Regional and urban air poulltion issues
  • Measuring and monitoring of the atmosphere

In recent decades, there has been a growing realization that man's activities have a direct influence on the behavious of the atmosphere. Ozone depletion and, more recently, global climate change, have highlighted our need for a better understanding of how the Earth's atmosphere works, what controls its physical and chemical behaviour, and how its behaviour can be predicted. This Handbook seeks to underpin the principles of atmospheric sciences and their application to understanding and predicting the Earth's atmosphere, weather and climate, and man's pollution and modification of it.

This book will prove invaluable to scientists, policy makers and environmental practitioners, as well as advanced level students
