Overview

This comprehensive reference work illustrates the state of the art of laser-induced analytical methods in environmental and life sciences as an interdisciplinary approach. Techniques of remote sensing in the atmosphere as well as diagnostic methods for soil, water and air contamination and exhaled breath are described. The authors demonstrate that multi-disciplinary applications are possible. Examples are given as to how existing environmental diagnostic methods found their way into the life sciences. Prominent scientists report on their current research.
