About the Authors
  • Introduction to Atmospheric Chemistry reviews in ten concise chapters the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere and some outstanding environmental issues, including air pollution, acid rain, the ozone hole, and global change. Peter Hobbs is an eminent atmospheric science teacher, researcher, and author of several well-known textbooks. This text and his other book Basic Physical Chemistry for the Atmospheric Sciences (Second Edition, Cambridge University Press 2000) form companion volumes. The book, designed to be a primary textbook for a first university course--undergraduate or graduate--in atmospheric chemistry, will find a place in atmospheric science, meteorology, environmental science, geophysics and chemistry curricula. Special features include worked exercises and end-of-chapter student exercises with model solutions in an appendix.

    • A concise, clear review of the fundamentals of atmospheric chemistry
    • Contains many exercises with solutions, suitable for self instruction
    • This text and Hobbs' other Cambridge University Press book Basic Physical Chemistry for the Atmospheric Sciences (revised edition 2000) form ideal companion volumes for a full course in atmospheric science
