Contents Notes
The atmosphere -- Atmospheric condition, global cycles, and lifetimes -- Atmospheric photochemistry and chemical kinetics -- Chemistry of the stratosphere -- Chemistry of the troposphere -- Chemistry of the atmospheric aqueous phase -- Properties of the atmospheric aerosol -- Dynamics of single aerosol particles -- Thermodynamics of aerosols -- Nucleation -- Mass transfer aspects of atmospheric chemistry -- Dynamics of aerosol populations -- Organic atmospheric aerosols -- Meteorology of air pollution -- Cloud physics -- Micrometeorology -- Atmospheric diffusion theories -- Analytical solutions for atmospheric diffusion : the Gaussian Plume Equation and others. 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 gasses and particles; and formulation of mathematical chemical/transport models of the atmosphere. The reference is an ideal resource for both students and professionals in all areas of engineering as well as atmospheric science.
