about

One challenge in atmospheric chemistry is understanding the intercontinental transport and transformation of gases and aerosols. This book describes observational and modeling techniques used to understand atmospheric composition from satellites, aircraft and ground based platforms. Common ideas presented throughout are the role of each component in an observing system for atmospheric composition, and advances necessary to improve understanding of atmospheric composition.

Dr. Guido Visconti is professor at the Department of Physcis at l'Aquila University, Italy. He is a leading scientist in the field of remote sensing and has written and edited several books, and made numerous other contributions to the field.The other editors with a wealth of knowledge and experience are affiliated to respectively l'Aq...

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book covers the lectures given there by experts, presented as 17 chapters, and arranged in four parts which cover the ground specified in the book's sub-title. . All in all, this is valuable and timely summary of the state of the art for observing and understanding the composition of the Earth's atmosphere, which is so precious a resource to us humans." (M. J. Rycroft, Surveys in Geophysics, Vol. 28, 2007)
