    Contributions - 6th International Conference on Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometry and Its Applications

    PTR-MS (Proton Transfer Reaction-Mass Spectrometry) is a relatively new technology developed at the Institute of Ion Physics at the University of Innsbruck in the 1990’s. PTR-MS has been found to be an extremely powerful and promising technology for the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOC) at ultra low concentrations (pptv) in gaseous ...

  • Atmospheric Chemistry

    Atmospheric Chemistry provides readers with a basic knowledge of the chemistry of Earth's atmosphere, and an understanding of the role that chemical transformations play in this vital part of our environment. The composition of the 'natural' atmosphere (troposphere, stratosphere and mesosphere) is described in terms of the physical and chemical ...

  • Atmospheric Chemistry in a Changing World

    This unique volume summarizes and integrates more than a decade of atmospheric chemistry research, carried out under the auspices of the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) Project of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP). It is part of a series being written by each of the IGBP core projects. During the period under ...

  • Atmospheric Thermodynamics: Elementary Physics and Chemistry

    This textbook presents a uniquely integrated approach in linking both physics and chemistry to the study of atmospheric thermodynamics. The book explains the classical laws of thermodynamics, focuses on various fluid systems, and, recognising the increasing importance of chemistry in the meteorological and climate sciences, devotes a chapter to ...

  • Changes of Atmospheric Chemistry and Effects on Forest Ecosystems

    This volume summarises the result of an interdisciplinary research programme entitled 'Rehabilitation of the Atmosphere of the New States of Germany - Effects on Terrestrial Ecosystems'. Before the unification of Germany, emission loads of SO2 and dust particles were up to 18-fold higher in East than in West Germany. However, emission rates ...

  • Pollutants from Combustion Formation and Impact on Atmospheric Chemistry

    The preservation of the environment is of increasing concern at all scales, from individual countries through continents to the entire planet. Combustion is known to contribute substantially to damage to the atmosphere and therefore this book reviews current knowledge of the mechanisms by which the main pollutants are formed in combustion ...

Combustion is known to contribute substantially to damage to the atmosphere and therefore this book reviews current knowledge of the mechanisms by which the main pollutants are formed in combustion ...

  • Tropospheric Chemistry

    The formation, transport and impact of photo-oxidants, e.g., ozone, is a major environmental problem in densely populated areas with corresponding high emissions of ozone precursor substances such as NOx and volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC).Although major progress has been achieved within the last decade, there are still significant ...

  • Environmental Chemistry

    Environmental chemistry is a new, fast developing science aimed at deciphering fundamental mechanisms ruling the behaviour of pollutants in ecosystems. Applying this knowledge to current environmental issues leads to the remediation of environmental media, and to new, low energy, low emission, sustainable processes. This book describes the ...

  • Chemistry in the Marine Environment

    The oceans cover more than 70% of the earth's surface to an average depth of almost 4000 metres. It is therefore not surprising that exchanges that occur between ocean and atmosphere exert major influences on the global climate. In addition, there is great variety within the expanses of the ocean, including large temperature differences, and ...

  • Outdoor Atmospheric Corrosion

    STP 1421 contains the latest global information on outdoor atmospheric corrosion. Twenty-nine peer-reviewed papers, written by an international group of experts cover: Prediction of Outdoor Corrosion Performance focuses on prediction of atmospheric corrosion performance from climatic data, particularly in relation to methods being developed by ...

  • Chemistry of Marine Water and Sediments

    The book deals with the processes in marine environment with particular emphasis on the interface processes (sediments- water and atmosphere-water) regarding organic matter and energy fluxes, carbon dioxide intake and transformation. Particular analytical methodologies concerning biosensors for analysis in situ are ...

  • Chemistry for Environmental and Earth Sciences

    Tackling environmental issues such as global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, water pollution, and soil contamination requires an understanding of the underlying science and chemistry of these processes in real-world systems and situations. Chemistry for Environmental and Earth Sciences provides a student-friendly introduction to the basic ...

  • Observing Systems for Atmospheric Composition

    The new challenge in atmospheric chemistry is to understand the intercontinental transport and transformation of gases and aerosols. To address this issue, a global observations systems network of ground based sites and aircraft measurement campaigns are highly requested by scientists. The book describes the latest methods for observations from ...

  • The Chemistry of Life´s Origin

    The now recognized extensive existence of life on earth very shortly after the destructive bombardment of the earth's surface by early solar system debris has stimulated inquiry into possible exogenous sources of prebiotic molecules from space as well as intensified studies of the early earth's atmosphere. The chapters in this book cover the ...

  • Fundamentals of Environmental Chemistry, Third Edition

    The latest edition of a bestseller, this text expands its scope to explore the emerging area that is broadly described as sustainability science and technology, which includes green chemistry and industrial ecology. It is designed for those who have little or no knowledge of chemistry, but who need the basics of chemical science for their course ...

  • Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere for Environmental Security

    Recent ecological disasters make human beings aware of changes in the Earth’s climate. At the present time anthropogenic activities lead to the emission of greenhouse gases, pollutants, aerosols and ozone depleting substances and the scientific community in general feels responsible for understanding how changes in atmospheric chemistry can affect ...

  • Chemistry of Aquatic Systems: Local and Global Perspectives

    Aquatic systems play a salient role in the complex processes of energy and matter exchange between the geosphere and the atmosphere. Furthermore, the inextricable links between the water cycle, the geosphere and the atmosphere ensure that apparently localized environmental problems are increasingly seen to have impacts in other parts of the ...
