Riese: Physical and chemical processes in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere (UTLS) -- 4. M. Ehrhardt, M. G√ľnther, B. Jacob: Modelling and Numerical Simulation -- 5. M. Fischedick: Sustainable Strategies -- 6. B. Halbfas: Cross Sectional Processes and Development -- 7. R. Koppmann, P. Wiesen: Connecting the Research Network to the Wider Public. The book, the first in a series arising from the research network The Reacting Atmosphere, explains and outlines the aims of this ambitious cross-disciplinary effort. The central topic is air quality and climate change, and the methods of atmospheric physics and chemistry, applied mathematics and socio-economic science are used to advance the understanding of the role of the atmosphere in global change.
