Modern studies of the atmosphere, oceans, and Earth and planetary systems demand a sound knowledge of the basic chemical principles. This book provides a clear, concise review of these principles, particularly relating to the atmosphere. Students with little formal training in chemistry can work through the chapters and numerous exercises within this book before accessing the higher-level texts. The book covers the fundamental concepts of chemical equilibria, chemical thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, solution chemistry, acid and base chemistry, oxidation-reduction reactions and photochemistry. Over 160 exercises are contained within the text; they include 50 numerical problems solved in the text and 112 exercises for the reader to work on with hints and solutions provided in an appendix. Whether used in an introductory class in chemistry or for self instruction as a supplementary work book, this will be an invaluable resource for a broad range of students.

Review:

"...students with little training in chemistry can understand these principles and apply them to the atmospheric and environmental sciences." Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

"...very well written....In view of the reasonable price and the high quality of effort Peter Hobbs has brought to this book, any student aspiring to be a meteorologist, with or without a lab coat and acid-stained fingers, should have a well ear-marked copy on the shelf. Even fledgling chemists will find this text useful as a short, but concise introduction to difficult subject matter." Elmar R. Reiter, Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics

Book Description:

Updated and expanded in 2000 from its first publication in 1995, this book provides a clear, concise grounding in the basic chemical principles required for studies of atmospheres, oceans, and Earth systems. It is designed for students with little formal training in chemistry, before they move on to more advanced texts.
