Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Thoroughly restructured and updated with new findings and new features

The Second Edition of this internationally acclaimed text presents the latest developments in atmospheric science. It continues to be the premier text for both a rigorous and a complete treatment of the chemistry of the atmosphere, covering such pivotal topics as:

  • Chemistry of the stratosphere and troposphere
  • Formation, growth, dynamics, and properties of aerosols
  • Meteorology of air pollution
  • Transport, diffusion, and removal of species in the atmosphere
  • Formation and chemistry of clouds
  • Interaction of atmospheric chemistry and climate
  • Radiative and climatic effects of gases and particles
  • Formulation of mathematical chemical/transport models of the atmosphere

All chapters develop results based on fundamental principles, enabling the reader to build a solid understanding of the science underlying atmospheric processes. Among the new material are three new chapters: Atmospheric Radiation and Photochemistry, General Circulation of the Atmosphere, and Global Cycles. In addition, the chapters Stratospheric Chemistry, Tropospheric Chemistry, and Organic Atmospheric Aerosols have been rewritten to reflect the latest findings.

Readers familiar with the First Edition will discover a text with new structures and new features that greatly aid learning. Many examples are set off in the text to help readers work through the application of concepts. Advanced material has been moved to appendices. Finally, many new problems, coded by degree of difficulty, have been added. A solutions manual is available.

Thoroughly updated and restructured, the Second Edition of Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics is an ideal textbook for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a reference for researchers in environmental engineering, meteorology, chemistry, and the atmospheric sciences.

I purchased this textbook for a class on Atmospheric Processes. It goes into far more depth than I ever imagined, and you probably wouldn't see half of this material until quite a ways into your graduate degree in atmospheric science. That being said, it is absolutely comprehensive - there probably isn't a single thing you couldn't find somewhere in its pages.

I stumbled on this book at my public library. As a BS Chemical Engineer with 38 years of practice in the petroleum industry (including many years of work on air pollution,) I find this book to be a WONDERFUL CONCISE DIGEST of what it took me many years to try to find out on my own. The writing is clear, the use of Tables and Charts greatly helps in cementing the understanding of complex issues. I know of no other book which has the breadth of scope, the level of detail and the rigid application of good engineering practice to this evolving field.
I only hope that the second edition (2006) is followed up with a third edition to bring us up to date on the remarkable progress made in the past 10 or so years.

Format: Paperback
This is the standard book for any atmospheric chemist. I often use it daily to reference fundamental equations. The biggest problem with this edition of the book is that it falls apart. After having used it for one quarter it began to fall apart and now it is in several pieces. I would expect better from a textbook publisher. Since it is falling apart, it is harder to use. I have several other colleagues with the same problem, however, those that purchased the first edition still have a book that is intact. Consider getting the first edition or writing the publisher to tell them about the poor quality of the second edition binding.
