The required textbook for the course is "Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics" 2nd or 3rd Edition, by J. H. Seinfeld and S. N. Pandis.
The course web page will be updated soon to include the Syllabus, Calendar, and first few homework assignments.
- New and Old
DeMore (JPL Data Evaluation #12) - Print out pages 265-277 of the file (pages numbered 256-268)!
Burkholder (JPL Data Evaluation #18) - Many rate constants have been updated, and there is a wider range of data here than in DeMore.
IUPAC Chemical Kinetics Database - PDF file of rate constants for tropospheric chemistry
CFC Degradation Pathways - Illustration for one CFC and some clues for two others.
Rate Constants for Termolecular Reactions - Excel spreadsheet for your use.
Calculating Photolysis Rates - Excel file for ground-level calculations at various SZA
Extinction coefficient of the atmosphere - Excel file showing extinction coefficients by source and %transmittance versus wavelength. Based heavily on Figure 3.15 of the text by Finlayson-Pitts and Pitts (See syllabus, page 12).
Spectra of CFCs, Spectra of NOx reservoirs, and Spectra and photolysis Quantum Yields of carbonyl compounds.
SZA Calculation - Excel file. Go here to find latitude and longitude from Google maps.
OZIPR software - Lagrangian trajectory model of air pollution chemistry, with example input files. Manual may be found here.
Satellite Data from NASA Goddard - Ozone, aerosols, CO2, etc.
Total Ozone - Satellite data on column and slant concentrations of ozone, NO2, etc. - From the European Space Agency
Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) - Some notes and a Figure of the daily evolution of the PBL.
IPCC Assessment Reports - Full texts of the the Fifth (2014) Assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and related documents.
EPA's ozone mapping project - See maps of peak daily ozone and running 8 hour averages.
Air Quality Monitoring in East Syracuse - (URL needs updating) Data and graphs from the NYS Dept. of Env. Conservation.
Hazardous air Pollutants - Information from the US EPA.
Degradation pathway of n-butane initiated by OH radical - with comments. To be added later.
Atmospheric Chemistry - Web page of Yuhang Wang at at Georgia Tech, with links to his Atmospheric Chemistry and related courses.
Air Pollution Training Institute - self-teaching modules from the US EPA.
Defining a Dobson Unit - from The Ozone Hole Tour at the Centre for Atmospheric Science.
A Paleo Perpsective on Global Warming - Information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
