One challenge in atmospheric chemistry is understanding the intercontinental transport and transformation of gases and aerosols. This book describes observational and modeling techniques used to understand atmospheric composition from satellites, aircraft and ground based platforms. Common ideas presented throughout are the role of each component in an observing system for atmospheric composition, and advances necessary to improve understanding of atmospheric composition.AeroVironmenta#39;s Pathfinder solar-powered plane in flight on September 11, 1995 (NASA DFRC, photographer: Tony Landis). ...
