TitleModelling the Upper Atmosphere of Gas-Giant Exoplanets Irradiated by Low-Mass Stars
Author(s)Chadney, Joshua
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXII, 169 p. 85 illus., 70 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis PhD thesis details the development of a new 1D ionospheric model to describe the upper atmospheres of extrasolar giant plants. The upper atmospheres of Hot Jupiters are subject to extreme radiation conditions that can result in rapid atmospheric escape. The composition and structure of these planets??? upper atmospheres are affected by high-energy emissions from the host star. The nature of these emissions depends on the stellar type and age, making them important factors in understanding the behaviour of exoplanetary atmospheres.??

TitleGeneral Theory of Light Propagation and Imaging Through the Atmosphere
Author(s)McKechnie, T. Stewart
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2016.
DescriptionXXIX, 624 p. 190 illus., 13 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book lays out a new, general theory of light propagation and imaging through Earth???s turbulent atmosphere. Current theory is based on the ??? now widely doubted ??? assumption of Kolmogorov turbulence. The new theory is based on a generalized atmosphere, the turbulence characteristics of which can be established, as needed, from readily measurable properties of point-object, or star, images. The pessimistic resolution predictions of Kolmogorov theory led to lax optical tolerance prescriptions for large ground-based astronomical telescopes which were widely adhered to in the 1970s and 1980s. Around 1990, however, it became clear that much better resolution was actually possible, and Kolmogorov tolerance prescriptions were promptly abandoned. Most large telescopes built before 1990 have had their optics upgraded (e.g., the UKIRT instrument) and now achieve, without adaptive optics (AO), almost an order of magnitude better resolution than before. As well as providing a more comprehensive and precise understanding of imaging through the atmosphere with large telescopes (both with and without AO), the new general theory also finds applications in the areas of laser communications and high-energy laser beam propagation

TitleAir and Water : Trade Winds, Hurricanes, Gulf Stream, Tsunamis and Other Striking Phenomena
Author(s)Moreau, Ren??
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXVI, 265 p. 97 illus., 91 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteAir and water are so familiar that we all think we know them. Yet how difficult it remains to predict their behavior, with so many questions butting against the limits of our knowledge. How are cyclones, tornadoes, thunderstorms, tsunamis or floods generated ??? sometimes causing devastation and death? What will the weather be tomorrow, next week, next summer? This book brings some answers to these questions with a strategy of describing before explaining. Starting by considering air and water in equilibrium (i.e., at rest), it progresses to discuss dynamic phenomena first focusing on large scale structures, such as El Ni??o or trade winds, then on ever smaller structures, such as low-pressure zones in the atmosphere, clouds, rain, as well as tides and waves. It finishes by describing man-mad e constructions (dams, ports, power plants, etc.) that serve to domesticate our water resources and put them to work for us. Including over one hundred illustrations and very few equations, most of the text is accessible to readers with no more than high-school science and who are at ease with quantities such as the temperature of a fluid or the pressure within such a medium. Beyond the primary audience of engineers, teachers, and students, the book is thus also addressed to walkers, hikers, navigators, and all nature lovers.

TitleShallow Clouds, Water Vapor, Circulation, and Climate Sensitivity
Author(s)Pincus, Robert;Winker, David;Bony, Sandrine;Stevens, Bjorn
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionVIII, 396 p. 144 illus., 134 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis volume presents a series of overview articles arising from a workshop exploring the links among shallow clouds, water vapor, circulation, and climate sensitivity. It provides a state-of-the art synthesis of understanding about the coupling of clouds and water vapor to the large-scale circulation. The emphasis is on two phenomena, namely the self-aggregation of deep convection and interactions between low clouds and the large-scale environment, with direct links to the sensitivity of climate to radiative perturbations. Each subject is approached using simulations, observations, and synthesizing theory; particular attention is paid to opportunities offered by new remote-sensing technologies, some still prospective. The collection provides a thorough grounding in topics representing one of the World Climate Research Program???s Grand Challenges. Previously published in Surveys in Geophysics, Volume 38, Issue 6, 2017 The articles ???Observing Convective Aggregation???, ???An Observational View of Relationships Between Moisture Aggregation, Cloud, and Radiative Heating Profiles???, ???Implications of Warm Rain in Shallow Cumulus and Congestus Clouds for Large-Scale Circulations???, ???A Survey of Precipitation-Induced Atmospheric Cold Pools over Oceans and Their Interactions with the Larger-Scale Environment???, ???Low-Cloud Feedbacks from Cloud-Controlling Factors: A Review???, ???Mechanisms and Model Diversity of Trade-Wind Shallow Cumulus Cloud Feedbacks: A Review???, ???Structure and Dynamical Influence of Water Vapor in the Lower Tropical Troposphere???, ???Emerging Technologies and Synergies for Airborne and Space-Based Measurements of Water Vapor Profiles???, ???Observational Constraints on Cloud Feedbacks: The Role of Active Satellite Sensors???, and ???EUREC4A: A Field Campaign to Elucidate the Couplings Between Clouds, Convection and Circulation??? are available as open access articles under a CC BY 4.0 license at link.springer.com

TitleAir Lasing
Author(s)Polynkin, Pavel;Cheng, Ya
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionXII, 143 p. 107 illus., 95 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book presents the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary review of the rapidly developing field of air lasing. In most applications of lasers, such as cutting and engraving, the laser source is brought to the point of service where the laser beam is needed to perform its function. However, in some important applications such as remote atmospheric sensing, placing the laser at a convenient location is not an option. Current sensing schemes rely on the detection of weak backscattering of ground-based, forward-propagating optical probes, and possess limited sensitivity. The concept of air lasing (or atmospheric lasing) relies on the idea that the constituents of the air itself can be used as an active laser medium, creating a backward-propagating, impulsive, laser-like radiation emanating from a remote location in the atmosphere. This book provides important insights into the current state of development of air lasing and its applications

TitleAtomic and Molecular Radiative Processes : With Applications to Modern Spectroscopy and the Greenhouse Effect
Author(s)Krainov, Vladimir;Smirnov, Boris M
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionXVI, 273 p. 64 illus., 9 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book describes selected problems in contemporary spectroscopy in the context of quantum mechanics and statistical physics. It focuses on elementary radiative processes involving atomic particles (atoms, molecules, ions), which include radiative transitions between discrete atomic states, the photoionization of atoms, photorecombination of electrons and ions, bremsstrahlung, photodissociation of molecules, and photoattachment of electrons to atoms. In addition to these processes, the transport of resonant radiation in atomic gases and propagation of infrared radiation in molecular gases are also considered. The book subsequently addresses applied problems such as optical pumping, cooling of gases via laser resonance radiation, light-induced drift of gas atoms, photoresonant plasma, re???ection of radio waves from the ionosphere, and detection of submillimeter radiation using Rydberg atoms. Lastly, topical examples in atmospheric and climate change science are presented, such as lightning channel glowing, emission of the solar photosphere, and the greenhouse phenomenon in the atmospheres of the Earth and Venus. Along with researchers, both graduate and undergraduate students in atomic, molecular and atmospheric physics will find this book a useful and timely guide

TitleChelyabinsk Superbolide
Author(s)Gorkavyi, Nick;Dudorov, Alexander;Taskaev, Sergey
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionXVI, 304 p. 190 illus., 160 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteOn February 15, 2013, the Chelyabinsk meteor sailed over Russian skies in a streak of light that was momentarily brighter than the Sun. The remarkable event and its subsequent shock wave were witnessed and documented by countless local residents, launching a widespread scientific expedition to gather and study the remaining meteoritic fragments. This book chronicles Chelyabinsk???s tale of recovery and discovery from the minds of many of the scientists who studied the superbolide, leading field experiments and collecting meteorites and meteorite dust across the region. The Chelyabinsk superbolide is a complex and multi-aspect phenomenon. The book not only presents the results of the scientific research but also details the firsthand experiences of those involved in such efforts, providing readers with a unique opportunity to look at the "inner workings" of science that are seldom shown to the public. Over the course of their studies, the scientists collected over 200 photographs and a dozen video recordings taken by nearly 40 different eyewitnesses. Many of those never-before-published illustrations and photos can be found in full color in the pages of this book

TitleHost Stars and their Effects on Exoplanet Atmospheres : An Introductory Overview
Author(s)Linsky, Jeffrey
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionX, 273 p. 143 illus., 104 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteLike planets in our solar system, exoplanets form, evolve, and interact with their host stars in many ways. As exoplanets acquire material and grow to the final size, their atmospheres are subjected to intense UV and X-radiation and high-energy particle bombardment from the young host star. Whether a planet can retain its atmosphere and the conditions for significant mass loss both depend upon the strength of the host star's high-energy radiation and wind, the distance of the exoplanet from its host star, the gravitational potential of the exoplanet, and the initial chemical composition of the exoplanet atmosphere. This introductory overview describes the physical processes responsible for the emission of radiation and acceleration of winds of host stars that together control the environment of an exoplanet, focusing on topics that are critically important for understanding exoplanetary atmospheres but are usually not posed from the perspective of host stars. Accordingly, both host stars and exoplanets are not studied in isolation but are treated as integrated systems. Stellar magnetic fields, which are the energy source for activity phenomena including high-energy radiation and winds, play a critical role in determining whether exoplanets are habitable. This text is primarily for researchers and graduate students who are studying exoplanet atmospheres and habitability, but who may not have a background in the physics and phenomenology of host stars that provide the environment in which exoplanets evolve. It provides a comprehensive overview of this broad topic rather than going deeply into many technical aspects but includes a large list of references to guide those interested in pursuing these questions. Nonspecialists with a scientific background should also find this text a valuable resource for understanding the critical issues of contemporary exoplanet research
