Abstract

The need to obtain better data on tropospheric chemistry is well recognised. Phenomena of great concern such as acid deposition, tropospheric ozone formation and the global change issue leave the environmental analytical chemist with the responsibility of developing fast, accurate, precise and, possibly, easy-to-operate instrumentation and methods for the measurement of the many substances relevant to such environmental problems. The papers included in this book present many findings which are of significance in atmospheric chemistry. Topics covered include the accurate and precise measurement of atmospheric components such as ammonia and ammonium-containing aerosols, nitrogen oxides and their oxidation products, hydrogen chloride, organic compounds and hydrogen peroxides, as well as applications in airborne platforms. The large scale use of passive samplers is also considered. Denuder tubes in many different configurations have been used for the measurements of many gaseous components and for the separation from particulate matter. Applications of the denuder technique proved interesting as they provide the most scientifically sound method for the analysis of several species.
