About the Authors
  • Updated and revised, this highly successful text details the basic chemical principles required for modern studies of atmospheres, oceans, and Earth and planetary systems. This completely accessible introduction allows undergraduate and graduate students with little formal training in chemistry to grasp such fundamental concepts as chemical equilibria, chemical thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, solution chemistry, acid and base chemistry, oxidation-reduction reactions, and photochemistry. In the companion volume Introduction to Atmospheric Chemistry (also to be published in May 2000), Peter Hobbs details atmospheric chemistry itself, including its applications to air pollution, acid rain, the ozone hole, and climate change. Together these two books offer an ideal introduction to atmospheric chemistry for a variety of disciplines.

    • New edition revised and updated
    • Contains numerous exercises with solutions
    • This text and Hobbs' other Cambridge University Press book Introduction to Atmospheric Chemistry form ideal companion volumes for a full course in atmospheric science

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...very well written...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." Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics
