About this book

Language: English

Climate change is a major challenge facing the modern world. The chemistry of air and it's influence on the climate system forms the main focus of Chemistry of the Climate System. The book presents a problem-based approach to presenting global atmospheric processes, evaluating the effects of changing air composition as well as possibilities for interference within these processes and indicates ways for solving the problem of climate change through chemistry. The new edition includes innovations and latest research results.

"Even at the first glance one can see that the book Chemistry of the Climate System represents an enormous piece of work. I think that Detlev Möller's efforts produced an important and wonderful result. I consider this volume as one of the best books in the field, if not the best one. The approach is unique in such a sense that he places atmospheric (and environmental) chemistry in the frame of the climate system. As Paul Crutzen notes in the Preface, it is also unusual that he treats the history of all the problems discussed. The structure of the book is also particular. So, I congratulate for preparing this nice book."
– Professor Ernö Mészáros, Air Chemistry Group of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Prof. emer. University of Veszprém
