Dr Hayder Abdul-Razzak is a professor of mechanical engineering at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. He has over 25 years of experience with a Ph.D. from the Illinois Institute of Technology. An expert in atmospheric chemistry and physics, he is proficient in the design, analysis, and modeling of fluid and thermal systems. Dr Razzak has published numerous research projects in refereed journals. For the past twenty years, Dr Razzak has been involved with a research project supported by NASA and DOE to investigate the impact of aerosols on the atmosphere, in collaboration with Pacific Northwest Laboratory. His treatment of aerosol activation has been selected for incorporation into the Community Climate System Model and many other regional and global climate models.

The book is divided into two sections. The first section presents characterization of atmospheric aerosols and their impact on regional climate from East Asia to the Pacific. Ground-based, air-born, and satellite data were collected and analyzed. Detailed information about measurement techniques and atmospheric conditions were provided as well. In the second section, authors provide detailed information about the organic and inorganic constituents of atmospheric aerosols. They discuss the chemical and physical processes, temporal and spatial distribution, emissions, formation, and transportation of aerosol particles. In addition, new measurement techniques are introduced. This book hopes to serve as a useful resource to resolve some of the issues associated with the complex nature of the interaction between atmospheric aerosols and climatology.
