Title: Atmospheric aerosols

Abstract

All aspects of aerosol physics important in the oformation, evolution and removal of particulate material in the atmosphere are presented, and the influence of such particles on the climate and weather are outlined. The book opens with a discussion of the physics of aerosols and derives some f the more important relationships in the physics of single aerosol particles. These are then used as a basis for subsequent examination of interactions between particles and the dynamics of populations of particles relative to the evolution amd maintenance of particle size distributions in the atmosphere and for the production - modification and coagulation-removal cycle. The balance between production and removal is then reviewed and the regions of the size spectrum where the various formative and removal processes are most effective are identified. The last five chapters are devoted to the influence of atmospheric particles on weather, atmospheric optics and radiative transfer, atmospheric electricity and atmospheric energetics and climate.
