The Photochemistry of Atmospheres: Earth, the Other Planets, and Comets discusses the photochemical and chemical processes in atmospheres This book focuses on the earth’s atmosphere in the past, present, and future, atmospheres of.

The book details the history of the various planetary atmospheres, not only the gas giants but also the more evolved atmospheres of small bodies. Physical constants and astronomical and atmospheric data are extensively tabulated for the 11 planetary atmospheres by: Photochemistry of the Atmospheres of Mars and Venus (Physics and Chemistry in Space (13)) Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed.

This is especially the case for planetary atmospheres, whose properties were for the most part either not at all or only erroneously known.

Abstract Papers on the photochemistry of the early atmosphere, the troposphere, stratosphere, and upper atmosphere are presented. Consideration is given to the effect of chemical constituents on the climate and atmosphere.

The photochemistry of the upper atmosphere, which is controlled by photo-absorption of solar radiation is described. The production of O and O3 in the mesosphere from dissociation of O2, and H reactions with O2 and O3 is examined.

The effect of odd-hydrogen radicals and particle precipitation on O3 is studied. While the chemical composition of the Venus atmosphere at altitudes below 50 km is explainable in terms of thermochemical equilibrium at the planet's surface, in the presence of a photochemical equilibrium among the different forms of sulfur, it is difficult to explain the measured altitude dependences of H2O and O2 in light of the law of constancy of elementary by: The thermal structure and composition of Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, Jupiter, Titan, and Io are described.

Molecular hydrogen is the dominant constituent in the atmosphere of the outer planets. The hydrogen and helium, methane, ammonia and phosphine, and carbon monoxide photochemical reactions of the outer planets are studied. The importance of Jupiter's lightning Author: D.

Strobel. A review of some features of typical photochemical processes conducted in the vapor state and a survey of the reactions of the urban atmosphere, are also considered.

The book further tackles the mechanisms of organic photochemical reactions; the synthetic applications of organic photochemistry; and the photochemistry of the solid Edition: 1. The book further tackles the mechanisms of organic photochemical reactions; the synthetic applications of organic photochemistry; and the photochemistry of the solid state.

The text also looks into photochromism and the industrial applications of photochemistry. People involved in the field of photochemistry will find the book useful.

Photochemistry of the Atmospheres of Mars and Venus. Authors (view affiliations) Much research has been invested in the study of the atmospheres of Mars and Venus, and their chemical composition and photochemistry are basic problems in these studies.

In the present publication I have tried to summarize all findings in this field. Chemistry of the Upper and Lower Atmosphere provides postgraduate researchers and teachers with a uniquely detailed, comprehensive, and authoritative resource. The text bridges the "gap" between the fundamental chemistry of the earth's atmosphere and "real world" examples of its application to the development of sound scientific risk.

An introduction to the chemistry of the atmospheres of the earth, the planets, and their satellites is presented, with particular attention given to the application of photochemistry and kinetics to atmospheres, ozone in the earth's stratosphere, the earth's troposphere, ions in the atmosphere, the airglow, and evolution and change in atmospheres and climates.

This book presents the principles of atmospheric chemistry. Consideration is given to the occurrence of isotope-selective chemistry in the photolysis of ozone that might give rise to the observed enrichment of 50 O 3 in the atmosphere.

Vibrationally-excited ozone is implicated in both atmospheric processes and in laboratory experiments, and the vibrational photochemistry of ozone is explored by: Photochemistry of Planetary Atmospheres Yuk L.

Yung and William B. DeMore. This valuable reference presents detailed studies of eleven planetary atmospheres: four for the giant planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune), four for the small bodies (Io, Titan, Triton, and Pluto), and three for the terrestrial planets (Mars, Venus, and Earth).

1 Chemical Composition and Structure of the Martian Atmosphere.- Carbon Dioxide and Atmospheric Pressure.- CO and O2 Mixing Ratios.- Ozone.- Water Vapor.- Composition of the Upper Atmosphere as Determined from Airglow Spectroscopy.- Mass Spectrometric Measurements of the Atmospheric Composition.- Ionospheric Composition.

The chemical composition of the stratosphere, which is controlled by photochemical processes, is described. A photolytic database is required to study the photochemistry of the stratosphere. The Chapman Ozone Cycle () for the photodissociation of O and O3 is examined.

The relation between water vapor and the odd-hydrogen cycle, and N2O and the odd-nitrogen. Atmospheric chemistry has been the focus of much research activity in recent years, and there is now heightened public awareness of the environmental issues in which it plays a part.

In a clear, readable style, this important book looks at the insights and interpretations afforded by the research, and places in context the exciting, dramatic, and sometimes disturbing findings.

Like ."The chemical composition of any planetary atmosphere is of fundamental importance in determining its photochemistry and dynamics in addition to its thermal balance, climate, origin and evolution.

Divided into two parts, this book begins with a set of introductory chapters, starting with a concise review of the Solar System and fundamental.The classification of comets, chemically rich mixtures of volatile materials and refractory grains, is described.

The developments of coma and tails, and the composition and structure of coma, plasma tails, dust, and nucleus are examined. The differences between comets and planetary atmospheres are investigated.

Three hypotheses on the origin of comets are proposed; one .
