Opis produktu

Since starting research in 1968 Tony Cox has published over 150 research papers and 30 reviews and evaluations on a range of topics in atmospheric chemistry. His main contributions to the understanding of the chemistry of the atmosphere is through studies of kinetics and mechanisms of atmospheric reactions. His work led to many new insights into the atmospheric oxidation of sulphur dioxide and volatile organic compounds the formation of peroxyacetyl nitrate and the chemistry of alkoxy radicals which are central to photochemical oxidant pollution. He has also demonstrated the formation of novel unstable halogen compounds which become significant at low atmospheric temperatures and play important roles in the chemistry of Antarctic ozone depletion. He has contributed to numerous international assessments of tropospheric chemistry and stratospheric ozone depletion.An interdisciplinary approach to the theme of risk from cutting edge scholars and understandable to all.Cutting edge inquiries by leading scholars in a diverse range of fields into how we think about deal with and react to the concept of risk from the ancient world to the twentyfirst century from statistics to cosmology from neuroscience to criminology.Cutting edge inquiries by leading scholars in a diverse range of fields into how we think about deal with and react to the concept of risk from the ancient world to the twentyfirst century from statistics to cosmology from neuroscience to criminology.Recent events from the economic downturn to climate change mean that there has never been a better time to be thinking about and trying to better understand the concept of risk. In this book prominent and eminent speakers from fields as diverse as statistics to classics neuroscience to criminology politics to astronomy as well as speakers embedded in the media and in government have put their ideas down on paper in a series of essays that broaden our understanding of the meaning of risk. The essays come from the prestigious Darwin College Lecture Series which after twentyfive years is one of the most popular public lecture series at the University of Cambridge. The risk lectures in 2010 were amongst the most popular yet and in essay form they make for a lively and engaging read for specialists and nonspecialists alike.1.
