Contents Notes
Overview of the chemistry of polluted and remote atmospheres -- The atmospheric system -- Spectroscopy and photochemistry : fundamentals -- Photochemistry of important atmospheric species -- Kinetics and atmospheric chemistry -- Rates and mechanisms of gas-phase reactions in irradiated organic-Nox-air mixtures -- Chemistry of inorganic nitrogen compounds -- Acid deposition : formation and fates of inorganic and organic acids in the troposphere -- Particles in the troposphere -- Airborne polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and their derivatives : atmospheric chemistry and toxicological implications -- Analytical methods and typical atmospheric concentrations for gases and particles -- Homogeneous and heterogeneous chemistry in the stratosphere -- Scientific basis for control of halogenated organics -- Global tropospheric chemistry and climate change -- Indoor air pollution : sources, levels, chemistry, and fates -- Applications of atmospheric chemistry : air pollution control strategies and risk assessments for tropospheric ozone and associated photochemical oxidants, acids, particles, and hazardous air pollutants. "This state-of-the-art book is a comprehensive treatment of atmospheric chemistry, including the application of measurements, mechanisms, and models to systems ranging from natural to highly polluted urban areas. Fundamentals are presented in a manner valuable not only to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and atmospheric chemists, but also to scientists and engineers in related areas. The current state of knowledge in this exciting and dynamic area is examined in depth, with emphasis on the chemical and physical interactions between the troposphere and the stratosphere."--Jacket.
