The Stratosphere: Dynamics, shipping, and Chemistry
is the 1st quantity in two decades that provides a finished assessment of the Earth's stratosphere, more and more well-known as a big section of the weather method. the quantity addresses key advances in our figuring out of the stratospheric move and delivery and summarizes the final 20 years of study to supply a concise but finished evaluate of the kingdom of the field.
This monograph reports many very important elements of the dynamics, delivery, and chemistry of the stratosphere through a few of the world's prime specialists, together with updated discussions of

  • Dynamics of stratospheric polar vortices
  • Chemistry and dynamics of the ozone hole
  • Role of sunlight variability within the stratosphere
  • Effect of gravity waves within the stratosphere
  • Importance of atmospheric annular modes

This quantity might be of curiosity to graduate scholars and scientists who desire to research extra in regards to the stratosphere. it's going to even be necessary to atmospheric technology departments as a textbook for periods at the stratosphere.
