9780122120510: Chemistry and Physics of Stratospheric Ozone, Volume 74 (International Geophysics)

Chemistry and Physics of Stratospheric Ozone will provide an in-depth account of chemical and physical properties of stratospheric ozone, which will be valuable to a wide audience.
The research of the last decade has produced as many arguments as answers, and the author provides a good account of both the accepted and provocative resolutions.

* Focuses on the important aspects of stratospheric ozone that are needed to understand most of the literature
* Provides extensive discussion of the natural and human-induced changes to the "ozone layer"
* Includes homework problems at the end of each chapter

From the Back Cover:

The Chemistry and Physics of Stratospheric Ozone is a reference and textbook focusing on chemical and physical processes that determine the abundance of stratospheric ozone. The presentations assume knowledge of the atmosphere at the level of an advanced undergraduate in atmospheric sciences, but no specialized knowledge of chemistry or the stratosphere is required.

The first part of the book discusses the fundamentals of stratospheric-ozone research, including kinetics, the continuity equation, the concept of lifetimes, and co-ordinate systems. The second part describes the processes that affect stratospheric ozone: chemical production and loss and transport by the circulation of the stratosphere. Catalytic loss is extensively discussed, and the mechanisms that determine the abundance of the important ozone-destroying radicals are thoroughly documented. To conclude, the author examines the causes of the Antarctic "ozone hole" and the effects of the eruption of Mount Pinatubo on the stratosphere. In particular, these perturbations to the stratosphere are used as examples of the feedbacks and interactions between the various processes that work to regulate the abundance of stratospheric ozone.

About the Author:

Dr. Dessler received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1994. He did his postdoctoral work at NASA Goddard and has been a research scientist at the University of Maryland since 1996. His work on stratospheric ozone ranges from building instruments and participating in field campaigns to analyzing satellite data and working with models of the stratosphere.
