Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

The Stratosphere: Dynamics, Transport, and Chemistry is the first volume in 20 years that offers a comprehensive review of the Earth's stratosphere, increasingly recognized as an important component of the climate system. The volume addresses key advances in our understanding of the stratospheric circulation and transport and summarizes the last two decades of research to provide a concise yet comprehensive overview of the state of the field.
This monograph reviews many important aspects of the dynamics, transport, and chemistry of the stratosphere by some of the world's leading experts, including up-to-date discussions of
  • Dynamics of stratospheric polar vortices
  • Chemistry and dynamics of the ozone hole
  • Role of solar variability in the stratosphere
  • Effect of gravity waves in the stratosphere
  • Importance of atmospheric annular modes

This volume will be of interest to graduate students and scientists who wish to learn more about the stratosphere. It will also be useful to atmospheric science departments as a textbook for classes on the stratosphere.
