Contents Notes
1. The atmosphere -- 2. The natural components of the air -- 3. Gas phase chemistry of the atmosphere -- 4. Aerosols -- 5. The chemistry of aqueous systems -- 6. Sources of pollution -- 7. Air pollution and its effects -- 8. The upper atmosphere -- 9. The atmospheres of the planets and their evolution. This book is about the atmosphere and human influence on it. Although air chemistry is probably one of the oldest branches of chemistry, the modern science of air chemistry began as recently as the 1950s. It is now the focus of considerable public interest. This being the second edition of an extremely popular text, much of the book has been rewritten and all information updated, to keep pace with this important and fast moving science. Students of chemistry, environmental science, ecology, geography and public health will find that this book provides a thorough understanding of air chemistry.
