Overview

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.
