Updated and expanded and updated with new findings and new features
After the 2nd edition of Seinfeld and Pandis’ classic textbook, noteworthy progress has taken place in the field of atmospheric chemistry and physics, mainly in the areas of tropospheric aerosols, chemistry and the science of climate change. A new edition of this thorough work has been developed by the prominent author team. Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, 3rd Edition, (PDF) as the previous two editions have done, provides a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of the chemistry and physics of the atmosphere – including aerosol physics and chemistry, the chemistry of the stratosphere and troposphere, atmospheric new particle formation, physical meteorology, global climate, cloud physics, statistical analysis of data, and mathematical chemical/transport models of the atmosphere. Each of these topics is covered in-depth and in each area, the central results are developed from first principles. In this way, the reader attains a significant understanding of the science underlying atmospheric processes and will be able to lengthen theories and results in solving real-world problems.
The 3rd edition includes new chapters on Atmospheric Organic Aerosols and Global Climate, as well as a considerably updated chapter on Physical Meteorology. Many topics and chapters have been updated and expanded from the Second Edition, including the Chemistry of Biogenic Hydrocarbons in the Troposphere, especially Isoprene Chemistry; mechanisms of Nucleation in the Atmosphere; Aqueous-Phase Organic Chemistry; Aerosol-Cloud relationships; and Chemistry of Mercury. A new section on Positive Matrix Factorization is included that wisely develops this powerful statistical method for aerosol data analysis.
New problems have been included, especially ones at a basic level, to increase the utility of this textbook in classroom situations.
All chapters develop results based on fundamental principles, allowing the reader to build a concrete understanding of the science underlying atmospheric processes. Readers familiar with the ebook will discover a text with many new and revised additions.
