This quantity comprises the invited papers and a transcript of the ultimate panel dialogue within the First clinical convention of the foreign international Atmospheric Chemistry (lGAC) venture, held in Eilat, Israel from April 18-22, 1993. The convention used to be hosted via the Israeli Institute for organic examine (IIBR) and was once the thirty seventh within the prestigious OHOLO convention sequence in Israel. The convention was once dedicated to the topic of "Global Atmospheric-Biospheric Chemistry" and was once a landmark occasion during this quarter. It supplied the 1st finished document of development less than IGAC towards enhancing our figuring out of the chemical and organic procedures that ensure the altering composition of the earth's surroundings. This paintings is a vital part of the excellent foreign Geosphere­ Biosphere application (lGBP) dedicated to measuring and realizing worldwide alterations some time past and current, and predicting the long run evolution of our planet. i would like to dedicate this short foreword to thanking a number of those that labored in particular tough to make the convention a hit and who helped to provide this quantity as a list of the development. Paul Crutzen, Amram Golombek, Pamela Matson and Henning Rodhe did sterling provider at the convention organizing committee. certain thank you visit Amram Golombek and Dr. Cohen, the Director of IIBR, who hosted the development in Israel. Anne Slinn did a very good task in generating the summary booklet and aiding with administrative issues. Alex Pszenny helped capably to seriously overview the Abstracts.
