Book Depository hard to find London, United Kingdom. Jacob's aim is to show students how to use basic principles of physics and chemistry to describe a complex system such as the atmosphere. He also seeks to give students an overview of the current state of research and the work that led to this point.
Jacob begins with atmospheric structure, design of simple models, atmospheric transport, and the continuity equation, and continues with geochemical cycles, the greenhouse effect, aerosols, stratospheric ozone, the oxidizing power of the atmosphere, smog, and acid rain. Each chapter concludes with a problem set based on recent scientific literature.
An important skill of the atmospheric chemist is to make the judicious approximations necessary to convert the real, complex atmosphere into a model system which lends itself to analytical or numerical solution. Stability of biogeochemical systems; nature of human perturbations of their dynamics. Semi-lagrangian schemes. Uptake by the biosphere and by the oceans represents sinks of comparable magnitude for atmospheric CO 2 , resulting in an atmospheric lifetime for CO 2 of 5 years. Because n s 2, temperature alone does not define the saturation water vapor pressure above a H 2 O-NaCl solution.
This is a novel approach to problem-set writing, and one that successfully introduces students to the prevailing issues. This is a major contribution to a growing area of study and will be welcomed enthusiastically by students and teachers alike.
