Air pollution by R. S Scorer( Book )

30 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to describe the basic mechanisms whereby pollution is transported and diffused in the atmosphere. It is designed to give practitioners an understanding of basic mechanics and physics so they may have a correct basis on which to formulate their decisions related to practical air pollution control problems. Since many theoretical and qualitative solutions are applicable in only a few situations, the emphasis here is upon seeing mechanisms in action so that one can quickly learn from observations. Consideration is given to the multitude of complexities of topography, building shapes, wind fluctuations, and diurnal variations of stratification. Chapters are titled: Pollution over Flat Country; Dilution: Formulae and Mechanisms; High Level Inversions; Ground and Valley Inversions; Wet and Coloured Plumes and Natural Pollution; Separation; Some Effects of Air Pollution (Smells, Health Misconceptions, Blackening of Surfaces, and Expansion and Corrosion); and Repercussions. Numerous photographs are used to increase observation skills and indicate why the complexities of the problem make every situation unique. (Bl)

A colour guide to clouds by R. S Scorer( Book )

20 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Colour Guide to Clouds contains 48 pictures that illustrate the most important cloud making processes. These pictures provide insights into the mode of formation of almost every cloud. This book is composed of six sections, and begins with an introduction to cloud name identification and the importance of clouds in the circumstances in which they occur. The succeeding sections deal with the major cloud names, namely, cumulus, cirrus, nimbus, and stratus. These topics are followed by illustrations of various cloud forms, the low pressure area of clouds, as well as ice clouds. The final chapt

Air pollution meteorology by R. S Scorer( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This international scientist here provides a compendium of air pollution behaviour. From a general survey he takes us through a study of diffusion mechanisms including pollution from industrial chimneys and road traffic. The book covers boundary layer scaling, pre-processing meteorological data, air quality management, urban meteorology, and atmospheric chemistry (oxides of nitrogen are central to ozone chemistry): with accounts of typical air pollution episodes and a brief dictionary of air pollutants." "Readership: Students, teachers and practitioners of meteorology, climatology, aeronautics, air pollution, environmental science and civil engineering."--BOOK JACKET

Studies of the problems of cellular convection in the atmosphere by Durga Ray( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classical theory of convection cells in a layer of viscous fluid can be extended so as to make it more relevant to the atmosphere. When we replace the molecular viscosity and conductivity by eddy transfer coefficients we find that, using the classical procedure for computing the critical Rayleigh number for the inset of convection, we determine the product Knu instead. Assuming certain forms of spatial variation of the eddy tranfer coefficients the method of Palm can be used to study their effect on Knu and on cell shape. It is not necessary that the transfer mechanisms should be by eddies. K-theory can be used to represent any transfer mechanism, and the effect of having highly non-isotropic transfer mechanisms is of special interest when clouds are present. (Author)
