About the Authors
  • Modern studies of the atmosphere, oceans, and earth and planetary systems demand a sound knowledge of basic chemical principles. This book provides a clear, concise review of these principles, particularly relating to the atmosphere. It covers the fundamental concepts of chemical equilibria, chemical thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, solution chemistry, acid and base chemistry, oxidation-reduction reactions and photochemistry. The book is particularly strong at relating basic chemistry to environmental issues, for instance, acid rain and the stratospheric ozone hole. Over 160 exercises are contained within the text, along with hints and solutions and a series of appendices including much-used chemical data. Whether used in an introductory course in chemistry or for self instruction as a supplementary work book, this will be an invaluable resource for a broad range of students.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...students with little training in chemistry can understand these principles and apply them to the atmospheric and environmental sciences." Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

    "...very well written....In view of the reasonable price and the high quality of effort Peter Hobbs has brought to this book, any student aspiring to be a meteorologist, with or without a lab coat and acid-stained fingers, should have a well ear-marked copy on the shelf. Even fledgling chemists will find this text useful as a short, but concise introduction to difficult subject matter." Elmar R. Reiter, Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics
