9781405123570: Analytical Techniques for Atmospheric Measurement

Almost all of the breakthroughs in understanding the atmosphere have been initiated by field observations, using a range of instrumental techniques. Developing or deploying instruments to make further observations demands a thorough understanding of the chemical and spectroscopic principles on which such measurements depend.

Written as an authoritative guide to the techniques of instrumental measurement for the atmospheric scientist, research student or undergraduate, Analytical Techniques for Atmospheric Measurement focuses on the instruments used to make real time measurements of atmospheric gas and aerosol composition. Topics covered include how they work, their strengths and weaknesses for a particular task, the platforms on which they have been deployed and how they are calibrated. It explains the fundamental principles upon which the instrumental techniques are based (ie what property of a molecule can be exploited to enable its detection), what limits instrumental sensitivity and accuracy, and the information that can be gained from their use.

Review:

Nicholas Hewitt, Chemistry and Industry 2/10/2006


Heard has produced a first-class book, which is without rival and which will be widely read by the atmospheric chemistry research community.

[The Editor] is...exceptionally well qualified to edit a reference text on analytical methods for chemicals in the atmosphere, and this promise is fully realised in this excellent book. [It] provide[s] superbly detailed and authoritative accounts of the methods and their applications to atmospheric analysis...the book is an excellent reference for researchers in atmospheric chemistry.
