  • 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...

  • Aeolian Dust and Dust Depositsby Kenneth Pye

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 72.95

    Aeolian Dust and Dust Deposits explores the entrainment, dispersion, and deposition of aeolian dust and dust deposits, with emphasis on transport and deposition of dust derived by deflation of surface sediments and soils. Topics covered range from the mechanisms of fine-particle formation to dust sources, sinks, and rates of deposition. Dust-transporting... more...

  • Aerosol Opticsby Alexander A. Kokhanovsky

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 209.00

    Springer/Praxis have a successful mini program of books on various aspects of light scattering, and now have a journal "Light Scattering Review" under consideration proposed by Alex Kokhanovsky. The atmospheric air contains not only gases but also various types of airborne particles (known as aerosols) ranging from dust grains to microbes. These small... 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...

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

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 269.00

    This cutting edge book analyzes the effect of aerosols on the Earth's climate and introduces for the first time satellite aerosol remote sensing over land. The book is written by specialists working at the forefront of research in this important area. more...

  • First Principles of Meteorology and Air Pollutionby Mihalis Lazaridis

    Springer Netherlands 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. more...
