  • Satellite Aerosol Remote Sensing Over Land

    Aerosols have a significant influence on the Earth's radiation budget, but there is considerable uncertainty about the magnitude of their effect on the Earth's climate. Currently, satellite remote sensing is being increasingly utilized to improve our understanding of the effect of atmospheric aerosols on the climate system.Satellite Aerosol Remote ...

  • 2002 Report of the Aerosols, Sterilants, Miscellaneous Uses and Carbon Tetrachloride Technical Options Committee ( ATOC)

    In 1981, in response to the growing scientific consensus that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and halons would deplete the ozone layer, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) began negotiations to develop multilateral protectionof the ozone layer. These negotiations resulted in the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer, ...

  • Exploring the Atmosphere by Remote Sensing Techniques

    This set of lectures focusses on techniques to retrieve atmospheric components, gases, aerosols and clouds, as well as application such as in connection with climate changes. This book addresses primarily graduate students and young researchers in the atmopheric sciences but will be useful for all those wishing to study various techniques for ...

  • Dimethylsulphide: Oceans, Atmosphere and Climate (1992)

    Dimethylsulphide (DMS), emitted by marine phytoplankton, is the second most important source of atmospheric sulphur, after anthropogenic SO2. In the atmosphere, DMS is transformed into condensable acidic sulphur products and, through gas-to-particle conversion, it becomes the most important natural source of atmospheric sulphate aerosols. ...

  • Marine Chemistry

    The carbon dioxide absorption and gas exchange at the sea surface, marine aerosols and their photochemistry, the oceanic carbon cycle as well as biomarkers in marine ecosystems, and related topics are of primary importance for understanding our global ecosystem. The topics addressed in this volume are all stemming from areas which have developed ...

  • 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 ...
