Andrea Jackson is a senior lecturer of Atmospheric Chemistry within the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Leeds, UK. Her main research interests involve investigating the gas phase chemistry of oxidant species in the atmosphere and more recently the physics and chemistry of polar frost flowers and their resultant sea-salt aerosol in order to understand their impact on the atmospheric chemistry of these regions.
"With magnificent detail describing the links between atmosphere and environment, the book is a valuable reference for understanding current climate science and the debate on climate change." (Drug and Alcohol Review, September 2009)
