Atmospheric Chemistry: Fundamentals and Experimental Techniques



This book by B. J. Finlayson-Pitts and J. N. Pitts appears at a time when atmospheric chemistry has reached a remarkable achievement. This relatively new discipline was given its first impetus in the 1950s, when Haagen-Smit and his coworkers published their nowclassical papers about the Los Angeles photochemical smog. In less than 3 decades, atmospheric chemistry has matured and is now able to cope with the major challenges of air pollution. It has grown into an elaborate science, covering a broad range of experimental and theoretical approaches.
