Description

Chemistry and Physics of Stratospheric Ozone will provide an in-depth account of chemical and physical properties of stratospheric ozone, which will be valuable to a wide audience.

The research of the last decade has produced as many arguments as answers, and the author provides a good account of both the accepted and provocative resolutions.

Review quote

"Andrew Dessler has produced a useful and succinct text aimed at advanced-level undergraduates or starting post-graduates with no specialist knowledge of the stratosphere." -CONTEMPORARY PHYSICS

"The heart of the book addresses. . .the fundamentals of stratospheric chemistry, ozone production loss, chemical families and partitioning, and transport of ozone. These chapters rise well above the competition, with clear explanations and crisply designed figures based on 1990s-era satellite observations and modeling results. Dessler's book will find wide use as a graduate-level text and reference for researchers, and a second edition could be stellar." --CHOICE, 2001

"...does an excellent job of acquainting readers with the tools and terminology of current stratospheric ozone research in a highly intuitive fashion. Adding to its usefulness, the book contains a number of problems and "asides" that deal directly with common public misperceptions about ozone.... It should serve well as a college course supplement to one of the available general atmospheric science textbooks or as a concise reference in the stratospheric specialist's bookshelf." --EOS, 2001
