Atmospheric Particles

Series on Analytical and Physical Chemistry of Environmental Systems - Vol. 5

Roy M. Harrison and R.E. van Grieken

John Wiley & Sons, 1998 [ISBN 0-471-95935-9]

Devoted specially to the chemistry of atmospheric particles which can impose environmental health impacts, for instance, by acting as catalysts in the air, speeding up processes such as global warming and ozone depletion.

After considering the sources and distribution of airborne particles, the authors then discuss sampling methods and methods of chemical analysis of individual aerosol types.

  • First book to deal solely with airborne particles and their impact on climate, health and the atmosphere.
  • Leading scientists review and evaluate the best methods available for analysis of atmospheric chemistry.
  • Excellent overview of current research and forthcoming developments in this rapidly expanding area.
