9780122570605: Chemistry of the Upper and Lower Atmosphere: Theory, Experiments, and Applications

Here is the most comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of one of the hottest areas of chemical research. The treatment of fundamental kinetics and photochemistry will be highly useful to chemistry students and their instructors at the graduate level, as well as postdoctoral fellows entering this new, exciting, and well-funded field with a Ph.D. in a related discipline (e.g., analytical, organic, or physical chemistry, chemical physics, etc.). Chemistry of the Upper and Lower Atmosphere provides postgraduate researchers and teachers with a uniquely detailed, comprehensive, and authoritative resource. The text bridges the "gap" between the fundamental chemistry of the earth's atmosphere and "real world" examples of its application to the development of sound scientific risk assessments and associated risk management control strategies for both tropospheric and stratospheric pollutants.

  • Serves as a graduate textbook and "must have" reference for all atmospheric scientists
  • Provides more than 5000 references to the literature through the end of 1998
  • Presents tables of new actinic flux data for the troposphere and stratospher (0-40km)
  • Summarizes kinetic and photochemical date for the troposphere and stratosphere
  • Features problems at the end of most chapters to enhance the book's use in teaching
  • Includes applications of the OZIPR box model with comprehensive chemistry for student use

From the Back Cover:

This state-of-the-art book is a comprehensive treatment of atmospheric chemistry, including the application of measurements, mechanisms, and models to systems ranging from natural to highly polluted urban areas. Fundamentals are presented in a manner valuable not only to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and atmospheric chemists, but also to scientists, researchers, and engineers in related areas. The current state of knowledge in this exciting and dynamic area is examined in depth, with emphasis on the chemical and physical interactions between the troposphere and the stratosphere. Chemistry of the Upper and Lower Atmosphere concludes by drawing on material in the 15 previous chapters to explore its application to the development of reliable risk assessments and effective control strategies for ozone, acids, particles, and airborne toxic chemicals.
