  • Contains state-of-the-art developments in atmospheric physics, chemistry and plasmas
  • Offers discussion of the complex problems of atmospheric processes including elementary processes and chemical processes
  • Includes new data in aerosols physics, ionosphere processes dynamics, physics of ball lighting and plasmoids

The main topics of the book are the analysis of reactions in the atmosphere-ionosphere system and the influence of natural and technogenic processes on them. The book also examines a range of related research from an international field. In all, the volume covers the dynamics of atmospheric aerosols; the dynamics of an ionosphere and atmosphere; elementary processes in the upper atmosphere and an ionosphere; electromagnetic and optical phenomena in atmosphere, including long-lived and plasma objects; and Information systems of environment monitoring and prevention of incidents.

The text aims to reveal the interrelations of the dynamics of various atmospheric layers, as well as discovering the parameters of the atmosphere and ionosphere and establishing the role of various physical factors in the phenomena. The goal is to forecast the dynamics of environment in the development of external perturbations. The book is of interest to a wide range of researchers, as it has major implications in various fields of science and technology such as air and space travel.

Key themes: atmosphere, ionosphere, ball lightning, aerosols, dynamic processes, electrodynamic coupling, „Compass 2" satellite
