aerosol model Books

  • Carbonaceous Aerosol

    This monograph provides a unique and comprehensive coverage of the nature and atmospheric role of carbonaceous aerosol particles, these big unknowns of the global atmosphere. Even the concept of carbonaceous aerosol has just recently grown out of atmospheric pollution studies, without ever being anchored to solidified nomenclature and terminology. ...

  • Atmospheric Aerosol Properties

    This book provides the first comprehensive analysis of how aerosols form in the atmosphere through in situ processes as well as via transport from the surface (dust storms, seas spray, biogenic emissions, forest fires etc.). Such an analysis has been followed by the consideration of both observation data (various field observational experiments) ...

  • Understanding Radioactive Aerosols and Their Measurement

    This book is an introduction to radioactivity and aerosols for the scientifically literate reader with little or no previous exposure to either of these subjects. It provides a step-by-step introduction to radioactive aerosols from the physical science perspective, with coverage of such topics as indoor radon decay products, radioactive ...

  • Frontiers of Climate Modeling

    The physics and dynamics of the atmosphere and atmosphere-ocean interactions provide the foundation of modern climate models, upon which our understanding of the chemistry and biology of ocean and land surface processes are built. Frontiers of Climate Modeling captures modern developments in modeling the atmosphere, and their implications for our ...

  • Physics and Modelling of Wind Erosion

    This book provides a comprehensive summary of the recent developments in wind erosion research and a clear outline of its future directions. The physics of wind erosion, from particle entrainment to transport and deposition, is described with rigor from the viewpoints of fluid dynamics and soil physics. The techniques for quantitative wind- ...

  • Scattering from Model Nonspherical Particles

    The scattering of electromagnetic radiation by nonspherical particles has become an increasingly important research topic over the past 20 years. Instead of handling anisotropic particles of arbitrary shape, the authors consider the more amenable problem of aggregates of spherical particles. This is often a very satisfactory approach as the ...

  • Air Pollution Modeling and its Application XX

    Recent developments in air pollution modelling are explored as a series of contributions from researchers at the forefront of their field. This book on air pollution modelling and its application is focused on local, urban, regional and intercontinental modelling; data assimilation and air quality forecasting; model assessment and evaluation; ...

  • Remote Sensing and Climate Modeling: Synergies and Limitations

    This book for the first time covers state-of-the-art research in two domains which are largely complementary, but which have until now not made optimum use of their complementarity: remote sensing techniques and climate models. The material presented in the book covers such diverse areas within satellite remote sensing techniques as aerosol ...

  • Air Pollution Modeling and Its Application XIX

    The book is aimed at researchers and government policy makers who wish to keep abreast of the most recent developments in air pollution modelling and air quality issues. The book emphasizes the following key topics: 1. Local and urban scale modelling; 2. Regional and intercontinental modelling; 3. Data assimilation and air quality forecast; 4. ...

  • Air Pollution XV

    Publishing papers from the Fifteenth International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution, this book features articles on the latest developments in air pollution analysis and control. It covers the topic areas of Air pollution modelling; Air quality management; Emission studies; Monitoring and laboratory studies; ...

  • Fundamentals in Air Pollution

    This text is intended to be used in a lecture course for college students in air quality, with a focus on modelling challenges. The key current issues are discussed within six chapters: basic principles and classification of air pollution, radiative transfer, atmospheric boundary layer, gas-phase chemistry, aerosols and multiphase processes, and ...

  • Microphysics of Clouds and Precipitation

    This book provides the most comprehensive treatment to date of the microphysical processes which lead to cloud and precipitation formation. Emphasis is placed on presenting a quantitative description of the various mechanisms (e.g. nucleation, diffusional growth and evaporation, collisional growth and breakup) which lead to the formation of ...

  • Emissions of Atmospheric Trace Compounds

    This book was conceived during the workshop 'Emission of Chemical Species and Aerosols into the Atmosphere' which took place in Paris in June 2001, involving many experts who presented a number of state-of-the-art papers. Many of these papers are presented in this book where they are set in the wider context of other published work, providing ...

  • The Impact of Desert Dust Across the Mediterranean

    The atmosphere is an important pathway for the transport of continentally-derived material to the oceans. In this respect the Mediterranean Sea is of special importance because its atmosphere receives inputs of anthropogenic aerosols from the north and desert- derived Saharan dusts from the south. The dusts, much of which is transported in ...

  • Global Atmospheric Change and its Impact on Regional Air Quality

    There is growing evidence that the changing global atmosphere is impacting urban and regional air quality and that emissions from great urban conurbations are significantly influencing global change. This book presents the topics needed to understand possible changes in regional and global atmospheric air quality. Air quality measurements reveal ...

  • Optics of Cosmic Dust

    Initially this book focuses on the chemical and morphological properties of dust particles, both cosmological and terrestrial, and some of techniques used to gain information. When light or other electromagnetic radiation interacts with dust or other particles it is scattered in all directions. The scattering interaction are relevant to many ...
