Ravishankara, Guest Editor) Useful math info. This note provides a detailed overview of the chemical transformations that control the abundances of key trace species in the Earth's atmosphere. This note covers the following topics: photochemistry, kinetics, and thermodynamics important to the chemistry of the atmosphere, stratospheric ozone depletion.

The biosphere has dramatically changed the atmosphere's composition, including oxygen and the majority of trace gases. Human activities, such as agriculture, industry, and transportation, have left a clear mark on the composition and chemistry of the atmosphere.

A summary of the gases found in the atmosphere is given in Section Earth’s Atmosphere and the Ozone Layer. Earth’s atmosphere at sea level is an approximately solution of nitrogen and oxygen gases, with small amounts of carbon dioxide, water vapor, and the noble gases, and trace amounts of a variety of other compounds (Table "The Composition of Earth’s Atmosphere at Sea Level*").A key feature of the atmosphere is that.

The thickness of the atmosphere is only about 2% of Earth’s thickness (Earth’s radius = ~km). Because of the shallowness of the atmosphere, its motions over large areas are primarily horizontal. Atmospheric chemistry is a branch of atmospheric science in which the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere and that of other planets is studied.

It is a multidisciplinary approach of research and draws on environmental chemistry, physics, meteorology, computer modeling, oceanography, geology and volcanology and other disciplines. Research is increasingly connected with other Gas: per NASA. Chemistry of the natural atmosphere.
