Our atmosphere and climate are becoming increasingly hot topics. As the energy crisis calls for renewable alternatives, air pollution poses risks to health and quality of life worldwide, and natural disasters can be linked to global warming, the number of experts needed in public and corporate R&D in the field of atmospheric science is poised to rise. This book, aimed at the senior undergraduate and the graduate level fills a gap between general introductory texts offering little detail, and advanced books which are very high in technical level and aimed at Mathematicians and theorists rather than experimentalists in the field. The authors are accomplished researchers who know how to reach the intended audience. Suitable for course PH3600
Aimed at the senior undergraduate and graduate level, this textbook fills the gap between general introductory texts offering little detail and very technical, advanced books written for mathematicians and theorists rather than experimentalists in the field. The result is a concise course in atmospheric radiative processes, tailored for one semester. The authors are accomplished researchers who know how to reach their intended audience and provide here the content needed to understand climate warming and remote sensing for pollution measurement. They also include supplementary reading for planet scientists and problems. A solutions manual for lecturers will be provided on www.wiley-vch.de. Equally suitable reading for geophysicists, physical chemists, astronomers, environmental chemists and spectroscopists.
