Overview

Atmospheric aerosols (fine particles suspended in the atmosphere) play a significant role in the chemistry of the atmosphere, and in particular in the physics and chemistry of pollution. Ozone depletion is one result of the presence in the atmosphere of aerosols, but they also contribute to global warming and the formation of clouds. In addition, many types of pollution, such as that from the burning of fossil fuels or wood, exist as atmospheric aerosols.Environmental Chemistry of Aerosols will describe the current state of knowledge of aerosol chemistry with each chapter written by a leader in field. It will serve as an authoritative and practical reference for scientists studying the Earth's atmosphere, and also as a useful educational and training resource for both postgraduate students and professional atmospheric scientists .
