9789027723444: Aeronomy of the Middle Atmosphere: Chemistry and Physics of the Stratosphere and Mesosphere (Atmospheric and Oceanographic Sciences Library)

The reader may be surprised to learn that the word "aeronomy" is not found in many of the standard dictionaries of the English language (for exam­ ple, Webster's International dictionary). Yet the term would appear to exist, as evidenced by the affiliations of the two authors of this volume (Institut d' Aeronomie Spatiale, Brussels, Belgium; Aeronomy Laboratory, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Boulder, CO, USA). Perhaps part of this obscurity arises because aeronomy is a relatively new and evolving field of endeavor, with a history dating back no farther than about 1940. The Chambers dictionary of science and technology provides the following defini­ tion: "aeronomy (Meteor. ). The branch of science dealing with the atmo­ sphere of the Earth and the other planets with reference to their chemi­ cal composition, physical properties, relative motion, and reactions to radiation from outer space" This seems to us an appropriate description, and it is reflected throughout the content of this volume. The study of the aeronomy of the middle atmosphere experienced rapid growth and development during the 1970's and 1980's, particularly due to con­ cern over the possibility of anthropogenic perturbations to the state of the middle atmosphere and its protective ozone layer. As a result, much has been learned regarding both the natural behavior of the atmosphere and the impact of man's activities upon it. In this book we shall attempt to describe the current state of the art as we see it.

Review:

`... an important book at the right time. it is intended as an introduction to the field of middle atmosphere chemistry and physics and as a reference book for researchers in this area as well. There is no doubt that it can and will fulfil both tasks very well... Rich and solid material is presented for the evaluation of thermal and photochemical effects of radiation... outstanding and stimulating review... The authors themselves have made numerous important contributions to this development, a fact well reflected by the content and quality of their review.'
rBeiträge zur Physik der Atmosphäre, 58:1 (1985)
`... the material is up-to-date, presented in an illustrative manner, and is referenced extremely well.'
Pageoph, 1988
`Aeronomy of the Middle Atmosphere is an interesting and well-written overview of the current status of our knowledge of the composition of the middle atmosphere and the basic radiative, dynamical and photochemical processes which maintain it. I am not aware of another book which addresses the middle atmosphere from such a broad interdisciplinary perspective ... Many atmospheric scientists will wish to add this book to their personal collections.'
Bulletin American Meteorological Society
