Summary:
"Introduction to Atmospheric Chemistry is a review of the fundamentals of atmospheric chemistry. In ten relatively brief chapters, it reviews our basic understanding of the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere and some outstanding environmental issues, including air pollution, acid rain, the ozone hole, and global change." "The book is designed to be a primary textbook for a first university course (undergraduate or graduate) in atmospheric chemistry and will be adopted in departments of atmospheric science, meteorology, environmental science, geophysics, and chemistry. It is also eminently suitable for self-instruction."--Jacket.
