  • Aerosol Opticsby Alexander A. Kokhanovsky

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    Provides a comprehensive review of available techniques for the remote sensing of aerosols. Considering satellite remote sensing, this book also describes ground-based techniques. It describes techniques for the determination of the column concentration of aerosol particles and their optical sizing using spaceborne optical instrumentation. more...

  • Satellite Aerosol Remote Sensing over Landby Alexander A. Kokhanovsky; Gerrit de Leeuw

    Springer 2009; US$ 269.00

    Presenting a description of aerosol retrievals from satellite radiometers, this book looks at the 12-year record of global aerosol properties from Along-track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR-2) and Advanced Along-track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR). It shows how the algorithm uses the AATSR IR and visible wavebands for cloud detection. more...

  • Optical Effects Associated with Small Particlesby P.W. Barber; Raymond Chang

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1988; US$ 229.00

    This volume is a collection of review articles by scientists who have pioneered many of the recent advances in studies of the optical effects of small particles. The book begins with a review of the multitude of sharp dielectric resonances which exist in all optical spectra as a result of particle size and shape. Latest advances in absorption and fluorescence... more...

  • Atmospheric Aerosol Propertiesby Kirill Ya. Kondratyev; Lev S. Ivlev; Vladimir F. Krapivin

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 359.00

    Provides a comprehensive analysis of how aerosols form in the atmosphere through in situ processes as well as via transport from the surface (dust storms, biogenic emissions, forest fires). Such an analysis has been followed by the consideration of both observation data and numerical modeling results to assess climate impacts of aerosols. more...

  • Aerosol-Cloud-Climate Interactionsby Peter V. Hobbs

    Elsevier Science 1993; US$ 72.95

    Aerosol and clouds play important roles in determining the earth's climate, in ways that we are only beginning to comprehend. In conjunction with molecular scattering from gases, aerosol and clouds determine in part what fraction of solar radiation reaches the earth's surface, and what fraction of the longwave radiation from the earth escapes to space.... more...

  • Absorption and Scattering of Light by Small Particlesby Craig F. Bohren; Donald R. Huffman

    Wiley 2008; US$ 163.00

    Absorption and Scattering of Light by Small Particles Treating absorption and scattering in equal measure, this self-contained, interdisciplinary study examines and illustrates how small particles absorb and scatter light. The authors emphasize that any discussion of the optical behavior of small particles is inseparable from a full understanding... more...

  • First Principles of Meteorology and Air Pollutionby Mihalis Lazaridis

    Springer 2010; US$ 239.00

    This book's main objective is to decipher for the reader the main processes in the atmosphere and the quantification of air pollution effects on humans and the environment, through first principles of meteorology and modelling/measurement approaches. The understanding of the complex sequence of events, starting from the emission of air pollutants... more...

  • Aerosol Technologyby William C. Hinds

    Wiley 2012; US$ 193.00

    The #1 guide to aerosol science and technology -now better than ever Since 1982, Aerosol Technology has been the text of choice among students and professionals who need to acquire a thorough working knowledge of modern aerosol theory and applications. Now revised to reflect the considerable advances that have been made over the past seventeen years... more...

  • Aerosol Remote Sensingby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 179.00

    Featuring a homogenous presentation of the instruments and retrieval algorithms used in radiative transfer and remote sensing, this book for the first time provides readers with a smooth path from theory to practical algorithms in one easily accessible volume. more...

  • Mineral Dustby Peter Knippertz; Jan-Berend W. Stuut

    Springer Netherlands 2014; US$ 179.00

    This volume presents state-of-the-art research about mineral dust, including results from field campaigns, satellite observations, laboratory studies, computer modelling and theoretical studies. Dust research is a new, dynamic and fast-growing area of science and due to its multiple roles in the Earth system, dust has become a fascinating topic for... more...
