Beschreibungen

One challenge in atmospheric chemistry is understanding the intercontinental transport and transformation of gases and aerosols. This book describes observational and modeling techniques used to understand atmospheric composition from satellites, aircraft and ground based platforms. Common ideas presented throughout are the role of each component in an observing system for atmospheric composition, and advances necessary to improve understanding of atmospheric composition.

Dr. Guido Visconti is professor at the Department of Physcis at l'Aquila University, Italy. He is a leading scientist in the field of remote sensing and has written and edited several books, and made numerous other contributions to the field.
The other editors with a wealth of knowledge and experience are affiliated to respectively l'Aqulia University (Dr. Di Carlo), Penn State University (Dr. Brune), NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (Dr. Schoeberl) and Forschungszentrum Jülich (Dr. Wahner).
The new challenge in atmospheric chemistry is to understand the intercontinental transport and transformation of gases and aerosols. This book describes the observational and modeling techniques used to understand the atmospheric composition from satellites, aircraft and ground based platforms. The two common ideas presented throughout are the role of each component in an observing system for atmospheric composition, and the advances necessary to improve the understanding of atmospheric composition. The objective of this book is to provide a larger audience the opportunity to learn about these techniques and advances in atmospheric composition.
Edited by 5 prominent editors with different expertise and coming from 4 different countries (US and Europe)
Provides a truly global overview of the state of the art knowledge in both satellite, aircraft and ground based remote sensing techniques
