There is a recognition that Man's local activities can have a global impact, possibly irreversible, on the atmosphere with political repercussions that have raised awareness of the importance of the chemistry of Earth's atmosphere. This book will help chemists to understand the background to the problems, and it will also help non-specialist readers to gain the knowledge that might inform measures taken to alleviate the impacts.
