About this book

Introduction to Atmospheric Chemistry is a concise, clear review of the fundamental aspects of atmospheric chemistry. In ten succinct chapters, it reviews our basic understanding of the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere and discusses current environmental issues, including air pollution, acid rain, the ozone hole, and global change. Written by a well-known atmospheric science teacher, researcher, and author of several established textbooks, Introduction to Atmospheric Chemistry is an introductory textbook for beginning university courses in atmospheric chemistry. Also suitable for self instruction, numerous exercises and solutions make Introduction to Atmospheric Chemistry accessible to students covering atmospheric chemistry as a part of courses in atmospheric science, meteorology, environmental science, geophysics and chemistry. Together with its companion volume, Basic Physical Chemistry for the Atmospheric Sciences (second edition 2000; Cambridge University Press), Introduction to Atmospheric Chemistry provides a solid introduction to atmospheric chemistry.

Media reviews

"He has produced yet another high quality text. This one contains much background material required for a first-tome course in atmospheric chemistry [...] this knowledge is applied in numerous solved problems throughout the text, and students will find the exercises very helpful [...] I expect this book to become required reading for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in atmospheric chemistry at the introductory level. It would also be a useful introduction for anyone interested in this important and growing field of science, especially those from a non-chemical background."
- Miroslav Radojevic, Chemistry in Britain

"[...] highly recommended for the task of introducing this important subject to a range of students."
- Anne M. Thompson, EOS

"[...] this book can be highly recommended to students as well as other people interested in air chemistry."
Peter Winkler, Meteoroligische Zeistschrift
