Leading experts discuss the characteristics, advantages, limitations and future aspects of modern spectroscopic techniques for environmental analysis. Demonstrates how these methods can be applied to trace gas detection and assessment. Concentrates on the latest techniques--both laser and non-laser based--which offer advantages for air pollution and gas monitoring as opposed to more conventional methods. Numerous examples of applications illustrate the potential of the techniques backed up by cutting-edge information and representative data.

From Our Editors

Air Monitoring by Spectroscopic Techniques offers scientists and engineers unique, state-of-the-art information on the latest, most promising laser and nonlaser-based spectroscopic methods used in the detection and analysis of air pollution and trace gases - data previously available only in scattered resources. The opening chapter on the problem of air pollution and monitoring includes comparisons of the various conventional methods now used for trace gas detection and analysis. In the next five chapters, leading experts in the field examine the basic characteristics, applications, and advantages and limitations of various spectroscopic, air-monitoring techniques, as well as the instrumentation involved in using each method and its future prospects. Numerous application examples further enable practitioners to compare the various techniques and help show them how and when to apply such methods as: differential optical absorption spectroscopy, light detection and ranging, photoacoustic spectroscopy, tunable diode laser spectroscopy, and Fourier transform infrared
