Weather swap is without doubt one of the greatest demanding situations dealing with the trendy international. The chemistry of the air in the framework of the weather method types the main target of this monograph. This problem-based method of providing international atmospheric strategies starts with the chemical evolution of the weather method to be able to overview the consequences of adjusting air composition in addition to percentages for interference inside those techniques. Chemical interactions of the ambience with the biosphere and hydrosphere are taken care of within the experience of a multi-phase chemistry. From the viewpoint of a ''''chemical climatology'''' the ebook deals an method of fixing the matter of weather swap via chemistry

3 A historical perspective of air, water and chemistry 25 The generic term “aerosol” was first introduced into literature by the German meteorologist August Schmauß (Schmauss 1920, Schmauss and Wigand 1929). Atmospheric waters were first studied alchemically, by distillation of rainwater in the eighteenth century (Möller 2008). The first semi-quantitative chemical analysis of rain and snow was conducted by Andreas Sigismund Marggraf who collected and analyzed rainwater and snow water for purely analytical interests between 1749 and 1751 in Berlin; he also analyzed different natural (potable) waters to check their quality (Marggraf 1753, 1786).

Initia physicae inaudita (Amsterdam 1652, p. 86): “hunc spiritum, incognitum hactenus, novo nomine Gas voco” (I call this entity, unknown hitherto, by the new name of Gas), and “ideo paradoxi licentia, in nominis egestate, halitum illum Gas vocavi, non longe a Chao veterum secretum” (Licence of a Paradox, for want of a name, I have called that vapour, Gas, being not far severed from the Chaos of the Aunfients) (p. 59; English translation by J. Chandler, 1662). Adelung (1796, p. 425) quoted Helmont in wishing: “… dass unsere Naturkundige ein schicklicheres Wort, welches nicht so sehr das Gepräge der Alchymie an sich hätte, ausfündig machten” (… that our natural scientists find a proper word which does not have so much the aura of alchemy).

Today, an uncountable number of sites of air chemistry study exist, often only active for short periods with sometimes barely more than a dozen samples that are collected and analyzed for whatever purpose. The history of atmospheric chemistry studies, at least since the systematic monitoring in the second half of the nineteenth century − which is certainly unknown to most modern air chemists − not only encourages respect for our scientific ancestors but may definitely help to avoid many scientifically meaningless studies of the kind that have appeared over the last few decades.
