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, researchers, 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. Chemistry of the Upper and Lower Atmosphere concludes by drawing on material in the 15 previous chapters to explore its application to the development of reliable risk assessments and effective control strategies for ozone, acids, particles, and airborne toxic chemicals.
· Serves as a graduate textbook and "must have" reference for all atmospheric scientists
· Provides more than 5000 references to the literature through the end of 1998
· Presents tables of new actinic flux data for the troposphere and stratosphere (0 - 40 km)
· Summarizes kinetic and photochemical data for the troposphere and stratosphere
· Features problems at the end of most chapters to enhance the book's use in teaching
· Includes applications of the OZIPR box model with comprehensive chemistry for student use
· Illustrates key links between atmospheric chemistry and indoor air pollution, and control strategies for air pollutants including airborne toxics
