About this book

 This unique volume summarizes and integrates more than a decade of atmospheric chemistry research, carried out under the auspices of the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) Project of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP). It is part of a series being written by each of the IGBP core projects. During the period under consideration, great progress has been made in the science, computing, modelling and observational techniques; methods have also improved. Suggestions for the highest priority research for the next decade are made. The volume was written by leaders in the field of atmospheric chemistry research, and includes important information regarding impacts on the environment reinforced by solid scientific results.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The full title of this book deservingly reads: Atmospheric Chemistry in a Changing World … . Methodically organized and didactically excellently designed, this book contains many notably high resolution figures in full color - lending themselves wonderfully as educational/presentational aids. This book will not only be read by those working in atmospheric chemistry research, but also will certainly attract the attention of all those monitoring and assessing global change and its impacts." (Jörg Matschullat, Environmental Geologe, Vol. 45 (2), 2003)

"The present book summarizes and integrates more than a decade of atmospheric chemistry research … . The volume is accompanied by a list of more than 1750 references which, together with carefully prepared subject index (almost 2000 items), will surely be welcome by any reader. The book is carefully edited and produced in the quality of Springer’s books. I would like to recommend the volume to all scientists, postgraduate students, and teachers engaged in the field." (J. Catský, Photosynthetica, Vol. 41 (2), 2003)

"Atmospheric Chemistry in a Changing World is more than a summary of scientific activities coordinated by IGAC. More than 150 prominent scientists have contributed to the text, making it a comprehensive review of the progress that has taken place in the realm of tropospheric chemistry during the past 15 years. … To those that are actively engaged in research or that otherwise wish to learn about current developments and open problems in tropospheric this book will provide an invaluable source of information." (Peter Warneck, Journal of Atmospheric Chemistry, Issue 46, 2003)
