Chemistry of Atmospheres: An Introduction to the Chemistry of the Atmospheres of Earth, the Planets, and Their Satellites

Atmospheric chemistry has been the focus of much research activity in recent years and there is now heightened public awareness of the environmental issues in which it plays a part br In a clear readable style this important book looks at the insights and interpretations afforded by the research and places in context the exciting dramatic and sometimes disturbing findings br Like its highly successful predecessor this new edition lays down the principles of atmospheric chemistry and provides the necessary background for more detailed study The text has been thoroughly revised and expanded throughout to take into account recent advances in atmospheric science that include a host of new atmospheric measurements extended laboratory experiments ever more sophisticated models and ingenious interpretations of the phenomena Heterogeneous processes are now known to be of great significance in the chemistry of the Earth s atmosphere and new sections of the book discuss the influence o such processes on both the stratosphere and the troposphere A major eruption that of Mount Pinatubo has highlighted how volcanoes can influence natural atmospheric chemistry and the opportunity is taken to examine the effects of the gases and particles produced in such eruptions The startling discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole has now been matched by observations of similar ozone losses in the Arctic both phenomena are explored in more depth than before and the whole question of trends in stratospheric ozone concentrations is updated New topics in tropospheric chemistry that are discussed in this edition for the first time include the atmospheric chemistry of biogenic hydrocarbons of aromatic compounds and of halogens and halogen containing species br Several aspects have been added to the examination of air pollution including the effects of biomass burning Rapid changes in the composition of the Earth s atmosphere apparently a result of man s activities are apparently even having an effect on global climate and recent assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change are presented in this context Air transport continues to expand and the influence of aircraft on atmospheric chemistry and indeed on climate has excited interest that is explained here Moving away from Earth information gathered by the Voyager Galileo and other space missions which have provided a new understanding of the atmosphere of the planets other than our own is also discussed and brought up to date br This book does not attempt to suggest answers to the environmental problems facing us but it lays the foundations for the study of atmospheric chemistry on which rational decisions will need to be based A multidisciplinary approach is taken throughout in order to highlight the interplay between the atmosphere of a planet and other parts of the environment This feature makes the book full of interest for chemists physicists biologists and other scientists alike and accessible to all of them Readers will find the book an excellent introduction to an exciting topic and a fascinating source of information about a part of science that is proving to be of key importance br


The Atmosphere of Heaven: The Unnatural Experiments of Dr Beddoes and His Sons of Genius

At the Pneumatic Institution in Bristol England founded in the closing years of the eighteenth century dramatic experiments with gases precipitated not only a revolution in scientific medicine but also in the history of ideas Guided by the energy of maverick doctor Thomas Beddoes the institution was both laboratory and hospital the first example of a modern medical research institution But when its members discovered the mind altering properties of nitrous oxide or laughing gas their experiments devolved into a pioneering exploration of consciousness with far reaching and unforeseen effects br br This riveting book is the first to tell the story of Dr Beddoes and the brilliant circle who surrounded him Erasmus Darwin Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey who supported his ideas James Watt who designed and built his laboratory Thomas Wedgwood who funded it and the dazzling young chemistry assistant Humphry Davy who identified nitrous oxide and tested it on himself with spectacular results Medical historian Mike Jay charts the chaotic rise and fall of the institution in this fast paced account and reveals its crucial influence on modern drug culture attitudes toward objective and subjective knowledge the development of anesthetic surgery and the birth of the Romantic movement

Atmosphere, Mood, Stimmung: On a Hidden Potential of Literature

What are the various atmospheres or moods that the reading of literary works can trigger Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht has long argued that the function of literature is not so much to describe or to re present as to make present Here he goes one step further exploring the substance and reality of language as a material component of the world impalpable hints tones and airs that as much as they may be elusive are no less matters of actual fact br br Reading we discover is an experiencing of specific moods and atmospheres or i Stimmung i These moods are on a continuum akin to a musical scale They present themselves as nuances that challenge our powers of discernment and description as well as language s potential to capture them Perhaps the best we can do is to point in their direction Conveying personal encounters with poetry song painting and the novel this book thus gestures toward the intangible and in the process constitutes a bold defense of the subjective experience of the arts br br

Thermodynamics of Atmospheres and Oceans

p Thermodynamics plays a fundamental part in atmospheric climatological and oceanic studies Winds and ocean currents owe their existence to the thermodynamic imbalances that arise from the differential heating of the Earth s surface and air by the sun Phase changes of water in the atmosphere result in the formation of clouds and precipitation Freezing and melting of seawater in high latitudes influences profoundly the exchange of radiant sensible and latent heat between the atmosphere and the oceans p p Accounting for heat exchanges within the atmosphere and the ocean and between the atmosphere and the ocean is essential in any predictive model of the ocean and or the atmosphere p p Thermodynamics of Atmospheres and Oceans presents the first systematic and unifying approach to the thermodynamics of the atmosphere and ocean and establishes the interrelationship between these subjects This simultaneous examination of the thermodynamics of the atmosphere and the ocean enriches our understanding of both and is essential in many issues such as forecasting severe weather and understanding climate variability p p Thermodynamics in Atmospheres and Oceans will serve as a text for introductory graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in atmospheric science and oceanography The logical presentation of formulas diagrams and tables will prove valuable to researchers practicing scientists and engineers working in the field The eminently readable style includes both a reading list and problems to be solved at the end of each chapter to enforce the learning at each stage p p Judith Curry and Peter Webster are based at the Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder USA p

Atmospheres: Aesthetics of Emotional Spaces

Originally published in Italian in this book is the first to address the theory of atmospheres in a thorough and systematic way It examines the role of atmospheres in daily life and defines their main characteristics Outlining the typical phenomenological situations in which we experience atmospheres it assesses their impact on contemporary aesthetics It puts forward a philosophical approach which systematises a constellation of affects and climates finds patterns in the emotional tones of different spaces affordances and assesses their impact on the felt body It also critically discusses the spatial turn invoked by several of the social sciences and argues that there is a need for a non psychologistic rethinking of the philosophy of emotions It provides a history of the term atmosphere and of the concepts anticipating its meaning genius loci aura Stimmung numinous emotional design and ambiance and examines the main ontological characteristics of atmospheres and their principal phenomenological characteristics It concludes by showing how atmospheres affect our emotions our bodies reactions our state of mind and as a result our behaviour and judgments Griffero assesses how atmospheres are more effective than we have been rationally willing to admit and to what extent traditional aesthetics unilaterally oriented towards art has underestimated this truth


Air: Our Planet's Ailing Atmosphere
