Atmospheric Transport - Chemistry Modelling — Some Ideas for the Future

Part of the NATO • Challenges of Modern Society book series (NATS, volume 22)


The purpose of developing atmospheric transport-chemistry models is to create a tool, an instrument to investigate the underlying processes which lead to the chemical composition of the atmosphere. Modelling, in the sense both of developing, using and applying models is a scientific activity as it is focused on answering fundamental questions in the field of atmospheric chemistry.
