Natural Aerosols in the Climate System
by Charlie Zender
Publisher: University of California, Irvine 2011
Number of pages: 254
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.

Observations of ocean temperature confirm that Earth is absorbing more energy from the sun than it is radiating to space as heat. The energy imbalance provides verification of the dominant role of the human-made greenhouse effect in climate change.

In this interdisciplinary review, we are guided by our interest in exploring the nexus between climate and concepts such as energy, entropy, symmetry, response, multiscale interactions, and its potential relevance in terms of numerical modeling.

The application of dynamical methods, the development of theories of atmospheric circulation, the establishment of regular meteorological observatories, have all helped in throwing light upon some of the obscurer problems of the science.
