  • The Cassini-Huygens Mission

    The joint NASA-ESA Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn is the most ambitious planetary mission since the VEGA mission to Venus and Halley in 1985/86 and the Viking arbiters and landers to Mars in 1976.This volume describes the mission, the orbiter spacecraft, the Titan atmospheric probe and the mission design in articles written by its project ...

  • Calibration in Air Monitoring

    The Symposium on Calibration in Air Monitoring was presented at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Colo., 5-7 Aug., 1975. The symposium was sponsored by The American Society for Testing and Materials through its Committee D-22 on Methods of Sampling and Analysis of Atmospheres. R. L. Chapman, Beckman Instruments, Inc., presided as symposium ...

  • The Stratosphere and Its Role in the Climate System

    This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the stratosphere and its role in our understanding of the climate system. The key dynamic, radiative, and chemical processes that determine the distribution of chemical compounds including ozone in the stratosphere are discussed. The chapters contributed by outstanding experts focus not only on ...

  • Sympoisum on Instrumentation in Atmospheric Analysis

    Four papers discuss, fluoride recorder, gas chromatography, colorimetry, spectrometry, light scattering for particle size, filtration for aerosol ...

  • Instrument Development for Atmospheric Research and Monitoring

    The growth in our understanding of the production, transformation and loss of pollutants and trace substances in the atmosphere has followed closely the development of instrumentation for both in situ and remote measurements of the minute concentrations and fluxes of trace substances. In recent times the requirement has been for instruments which ...

  • The Forgotten Pollution

    The increasing pace of industrialization throughout the world has brought with it a serious and ever increasing threat from air pollution. It is true that this threat is being taken seriously, and that many responsible research workers, government advisors and others are working towards its reduction. But air pollution seems to have something ...

  • Water-Rock Interaction: Proceedings of the 12th International Symposium on Water-Rock Interaction, Kunming, China, 31 Ju

    The hydrosphere and lithosphere intersect in a zone a few kilometres wide at the earth’s surface, resulting in the formation of magmas, metamorphic rocks and mineral deposits, and placing important controls on the evolution of landscapes. This interaction imparts chemistry to waters and provides the essential environment for ecosystems to ...

  • Sampling and Calibration for Atmospheric Measurements

    Papers explain how to design and carry out atmospheric sampling, how to reliably calibrate instruments, and thus how to obtain more reliable measurements in relation to understanding and controlling air pollution, work place atmospheres, and indoor air ...

  • Modern Astrometry

    The book is an introduction to practical astrometry, dealing with the determination of positions, motions, distances and dimensions of celestial bodies ranging from quasars to artificial satellites. The main part is devoted to the description of instruments and observing techniques, and also includes the basic properties of optical instruments and ...

  • Variability of Air Temperature and Atmospheric Precipitation in the Arctic

    This book presents for the first time a comprehensive analysis of various aspects of air temperature and atmospheric precipitation variability over a period of instrumental observation in the Arctic, using data from stations, updated to the year 2000. A summary is also provided of the current state of knowledge concerning climatic change in the ...

  • Planetary Atmospheric Electricity

    This volume presents our contemporary understanding of atmospheric electricity at Earth and in other solar system atmospheres. It is written by experts in terrestrial atmospheric electricity and planetary scientists. Many of the key issues related to planetary atmospheric electricity are discussed.The physics presented in this book includes ...

  • Remote Sensing of Atmosphere and Ocean from Space: Models, Instruments and Techniques

    This book is a collection of the lectures, held at the International Summer School ISSAOS-2000 in L'Aquila (Italy), given by invited lecturers coming from both Europe and the USA. The goal of the book is to provide a broad panorama of spaceborne remote sensing techniques, at both microwave and visible-infrared bands and by both active and passive ...

  • Transport and the Environment

    Mass transportation has become central to the lifestyle of developed societies - but with what consequences for the environment and, ultimately, human health? Transport and the Environment investigates the major aspects of this emotive subject, with contributions from authors with international reputations for their research in the field. ...

  • Infrasound Monitoring for Atmospheric Studies

    The infrasound field, the science of low-frequency acoustic waves, has developed into a broad interdisciplinary field encompassing academic disciplines of physics and recent technical and scientific developments.In 1996, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting atmospheric nuclear ...

  • 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 ...
