The only single-source reference available on atmospheric chemistry, aerosols, and atmospheric models
This fully revised and expanded version of John H. Seinfeld's successful Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics of Air Pollution provides a rigorous, comprehensive treatment of the chemistry of the atmosphere. With new chapters on such important topics as cloud physics, nucleation, and wet deposition, this book offers a truly up-to-date examination of atmospheric chemistry today, including:
- Chemistry of the stratosphere and troposphere
- Formation, growth, dynamics, thermodynamics, and properties of aerosols
- Meteorology of air pollution
- Transport, diffusion, and removal of species in the atmosphere
- Formation and chemistry of clouds
- Interaction of atmospheric chemistry and climate
- Radiative and climatic effects of gases and particles
- Formulation of mathematical chemical/transport models of the atmosphere.
Complete with solved examples, problems graded according to difficulty, and hundreds of illustrations, this state-of-the art reference is an ideal resource for both students and professionals in all areas of engineering as well as atmospheric science.
