Overview

The major environmental concerns in the troposphere are the increasing burden of photo-oxidants on all scales, the acidification of soil and water, and the atmospheric contribution to nutrient inputs to ecosystems. This book assimilates the many scientific results from the EUROTRAC project about the state of the troposphere over Europe on local, regional and global scales, and presents them in a form suitable for use by those responsible for environmental planning and management in Europe. The findings and conclusions illustrate the complexities which face both environmental policy makers, seeking to find ways to abate pollution on a regional scale, and scientists, wishing to study and understand the scientific problems. This book is volume 10 of the series on Transport and Chemical Transformation of Pollutants in the Troposphere.
