About the Author

Richard P Wayne is Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford, and has been a Lecturer or Professor since 1965. Until 2006, he was Dr Lee's Reader in Chemistry as well as Senior Science Tutor at Christ Church, Oxford. He has devised and delivered courses and lectures on atmospheric chemistry at a variety of levels in Oxford, other UK Universities, and in other countries such as France, Germany and Argentina. He is the author of the book Chemistry of Atmospheres (OUP), now in its third edition which, with its multidisciplinary and pedagogic approach is widely regarded as the leading text on the subject. He was also the Founding Editor and Editor-in-Chief 1970-2005 of the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology. Ann M Holloway also works at the University of Oxford. Originally an Oxford chemist, she subsequently studied music at London, distinguishing herself by obtaining the top First of her year. She has, in addition, qualifications as a teacher and in mathematics. Her expertise in atmospheric chemistry and her experience in the capabilities and needs of students at all levels are in large part responsible for the structure of the book and for the selection of topics presented.


There is no doubt that this book will become the staple diet for any undergraduate taking a course in atmospheric chemistry and is indeed a most comprehensive primer for those wishing to pursue further studies. It is concise, thoughtfully laid out and illustrated with a good mixture of colour and black and white figures and photographs. Much effort has also been made to reduce the mathematical load in this book.I believe this has been achieved successfully without loss of rigour.Introduce new material of a more interdisciplinary nature into this book and this is most welcome. * Quart. J. R. Met. Soc., 137, 1102, April 2011 Part B. *
