Atmospheric Chemistry and Pollution provides an introduction to atmospheric chemistry and the part it plays in maintaining the complex chemical composition of the natural atmosphere. It concludes with a look at the influence of human intervention and ozone pollution. Wetlands and the Carbon Cycle discusses the characteristics and different types of wetlands and takes a detailed look at wetland carbon cycling at both local and global levels. Cryosphere is concerned with ice on Earth, on land, underground and in the oceans. This topic also examines the interactions between the cryosphere and people, and its role in environmental change.
