The book is a one stop textbook for the role of atmospheric aerosols in climate; it covers basic properties, observations techniques, remote sensing, climate effects, links to biogeochemical cycles, and geoengineering; The book shows a lot of pedagogy.

He is at present Research Director at the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the National Research Council, CNR. His main research interests are the physical and chemical processes involving atmospheric aerosols and clouds and their effects on atmospheric composition change, climate, ecosystems and human health.

Radioactive aerosols: tracers of atmospheric processes With the importance of this topic brought to the public's attention after the eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull, this book provides a timely, concise and accessible overview of the many facets of aerosol science.

The microbiology of aerosols is an emerging field of research that lies at the interface of a variety of scientific and health-related disciplines. This eye-opening book synthesizes the current knowledge about microorganisms—bacteria, archaea, fungi, viruses—that are aloft in the atmosphere.

@article{osti_, title = {Atmospheric aerosols}, author = {Twomey, S}, abstractNote = {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. Fu, in Encyclopedia of Atmospheric Sciences (Second Edition), Effects of Aerosols on Solar Radiation. Aerosols are suspensions of liquid and solid particles in the atmosphere, excluding clouds and precipitation.

The aerosol particle sizes range from 10 −4 to 10 μm, falling under the following broad categories: sulfates, black carbon, organic carbon, dust, and sea salt. Among the absorbing aerosols, BC is one of the most important categories, accounting for ∼10%–50% of the total tropospheric aerosol particles.

The atmospheric effects of BC largely refer to the interference with radiative transfer, visibility impairment, PBL stabilization, and alteration of cloud formation, which are strongly sensitive to.

This textbook aims to be a one stop shop for those interested in aerosols and their impact on the climate system. It starts with some fundamentals on atmospheric aerosols, atmospheric radiation and cloud physics, then goes into techniques used for in-situ and remote sensing measurements of aerosols, data assimilation, and discusses aerosol-radiation interactions, aerosol-cloud Reviews: 1.

Aerosol measurements can also be used as tracers to study how the Earth's atmosphere moves. Because aerosols change their characteristics very slowly, they make much better tracers for atmospheric motions than a chemical species that may vary its concentration through chemical reactions.

Aerosols have been used to study the dynamics of the. Atmospheric aerosols affect the climate directly, through the scattering and absorption of sunlight, and indirectly, by functioning as seeds for cloud formation.

Injecting aerosols into the atmosphere is one of the most hotly debated geo-engineering strategies put forward to combat climate change. In book: Advances of Atmospheric Aerosol Research in Austria, Edition: Interdisciplinary Perspectives No.

sources of aerosols are wind-blown desert dust, and sea salt. Anthropogenic aerosols tend to be associated with combustion by-products. Examples of anthropogenic aerosols are sulfates and nitrates.

These can be either emitted directly as aerosols (primary aerosols) or produced from gas phase reactions (secondary aerosols) of SO2 and NOx.

Thus. Aerosol Chemical Processes in the Environment uses several examples to show the impact of aerosol chemistry in several different fields, mainly in basic and atmospheric research.

The book describes the most important chemical processes involved in the various scientific and technological disciplines. It is now clear that atmospheric aerosols contribute substantially to global climate change and the importance of these processes must now be assessed. This book provides a comprehensive overview of present-day knowledge concerning atmospheric aerosols, how to characterise accurately the principal.

by Claudio Tomasi (Author), Sandro Fuzzi (Author), Alexander Kokhanovsky (Author) The book describes the morphological, physical and chemical properties of aerosols from various natural and anthropogenic sources to help the reader better understand the direct role of aerosol particles in scattering and absorbing short- and long-wave radiation.

This self-contained handbook and ready reference examines aerosol science and technology in depth, providing a detailed insight into this progressive field. As such, it covers fundamental concepts, experimental methods, and a wide variety of applications, ranging from aerosol filtration to biological aerosols, and from the synthesis of carbon nanotubes to aerosol reactors.

Figure Production, growth, and removal of atmospheric aerosols. Figure illustrates the different processes involved in the production, growth, and eventual removal of atmospheric aerosol particles. Gas molecules are typically in the mm size range. Clustering of gas molecules (nucleation) produces ultrafine aerosols in the mm size range.
