This book is a carefully constructed current text on atmospheric science that addresses the problems of change and deterioration in the Earths atmosphere due to human activities that threaten the planets future. A thorough yet accessible approach an attractive style with imaginative use of illustrations (including cartoons and model results) and a concern to give students a firm grasp of scientific principles in relation to the social and economic issues make this the first choice as a textbook for courses in applied climatology environmental science and geography. It is valuable as a supporting text in atmospheric chemistry and environmental engineering. The following chapters deal with acid rain and rainwater chemistry stratospheric ozone global warming and the greenhouse gases the climatic impact of nuclear war the long-range transport of pollutants and pollution problems of urban areas.
