Natural Aerosols in the Climate System
by

Publisher: University of California, Irvine
Number of pages: 254

Description:
This monograph describes mathematical, physical, chemical, and computational considerations pertinent to understanding and simulating the distribution and effects of natural aerosols in Earth's atmosphere. Much of the content applies generically to any aerosol, but the majority of the aerosol-specific sections focus on mineral dust. There are also minor sections on sea salt mobilization and gaseous uptake on sulfate particles.
