Title: Glossary of atmospheric chemistry

Completion Date: 2007 - project abandoned
Prepare a glossary along the recommendations given by the ISO and ICTNS.
A comprehensive Glossary of Terms pertinent to atmospheric chemistry
was prepared and reviewed and published by IUPAC more than a decade
ago (Calvert, Pure
Appl. Chem., 62(11), pp.2167-2219, 1990). This activity
will update that glossary to include terms that have become important
subsequent to publication of that document (as well as omissions) and
as necessary amend or elaborate previously presented definitions. Widely
used or generally accepted acronyms will also be included. Review and
resolution of conflicts will be by Division on Chemistry and the Environment
in the first instance followed by ICTNS.
January 2004 - The 1990 version is available and comments from
the interested atmospheric chemistry community are invited.
