Chemistry and Physics of Stratospheric Ozone will provide an in-depth account of chemical and physical properties of stratospheric ozone, which will be valuable to a wide audience. The research of the last decade has produced as many arguments as answers, and the author provides a good account of both the accepted and provocative resolutions.
Dr. Dessler received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1994. He did his postdoctoral work at NASA Goddard and has been a research scientist at the University of Maryland since 1996. His work on stratospheric ozone ranges from building instruments and participating in field campaigns to analyzing satellite data and working with models of the stratosphere.
