This work is concerned with the atmosphere and how the understanding of its behaviour could be facilitated by the observations and modelling of these interacting processes planned within the framework of the EOS programme. The Enrico Fermi school on which the book is based, was organized in such as way that general introductory lectures were followed by reviews of the planned EOS instruments and observational strategy to study specific components and processes in the Earth-atmosphere system. The book is divided into four parts. It begins with an overview of the Earth Observing System concept and provides a general introduction to Earth System Science. It then deals with the troposphere and includes a comprehensive introduction to the problems of tropospheric chemistry. The more traditional view of the troposphere as the stage for dynamics and meterology is also dealt with. The climatic system is discussed in detail in the third section and includes the most important advances made in recent years in understanding some of these processes which have come from satellite observations. The final part deals with the middle atmosphere. The interest in ozone has made this region of the atmosphere the most closely studied in the last few years, in an attempt to establish how much of the changes in its composition may be attributable to natural variability and how much to anthropogenic influence.
