About this book

This book provides the first comprehensive analysis of how aerosols form in the atmosphere through in situ processes as well as via transport from the surface (dust storms, seas spray, biogenic emissions, forest fires etc.). Such an analysis has been followed by the consideration of both observation data (various field observational experiments) and numerical modeling results to assess climate impacts of aerosols bearing in mind that these impacts are the most significant uncertainty in studying natural and anthropogenic causes of climate change.


Preface.- Introduction.- Part I: Field Observational Experiments: Atmospheric Aerosols field experiment programme; A history of studies; Field observational experiments in America and Western Europe; Field observational experiments in Eurasia and Africa.- Part II: Formation Processes and Evolution of Aerosol: Cloud Cover; Processes of aerosol formation (nucleation); Aerosol and chemical processes in the atmosphere; Interactions between aerosols and clouds.- Part III: Numerical Modeling of Aerosol Properties and Processes: Optical properties of aerosols and clouds; Aerosol long-range transport and deposition; Climatic impacts of atmospheric aerosols.
