Nucleation of Water: From Fundamental Science to Atmospheric and Additional Applications provides a comprehensive accounting of the current state-of-the-art regarding the nucleation of water. It covers vapor-liquid, liquid-vapor, liquid-ice and vapor-ice transitions and describes basic kinetic and thermodynamic concepts in a manner understandable to researchers working on specific applications. The main focus of the book lies in atmospheric phenomena, but it also describes engineering and biological applications. Bubble nucleation, although not of major atmospheric relevance, is included for completeness. This book presents a single, go-to resource that will help readers understand the breadth and depth of nucleation, both in theory and in real-world examples.
- Offers a single, comprehensive work on water nucleation, including cutting- edge research on ice, cloud and bubble nucleation
- Written primarily for atmospheric scientists, but it also presents the theories in such a way that researchers in other disciplines will find it useful
- Written by one of the world’s foremost experts on ice nucleation
PhD students and researchers who are atmospheric scientists, earth system scientists, ocean scientists, hydrologists, chemical engineers and physical chemists looking into ice nucleation or aerosol science

Dr. Ari Laaksonen received his Ph.D from the University of Helsinki in 1992, worked as a visiting scholar in the University of Chicago from 1993-95, and became a professor in 1998. He has supervised 23 Ph.D. students, and published over 270 peer reviewed scientific articles on nucleation, atmospheric aerosols and clouds, and on climate research. His scientific work has lately focused on heterogeneous nucleation of water and ice on different types of surfaces. He was nominated as a Thomson Reuters highly cited researcher for the past seven years.
Chief Scientist, Finnish Meteorological Institute, and Professor of Environmental Physics, University of Eastern Finland
Jussi Malila received his MSc in environmental physics in 2008 and PhD in applied physics in 2016, both from the University of Eastern Finland. His scientific interests are in nucleation and phase equilibrium studies related to atmospheric systems, including atmospheric new particle formation and aerosol--cloud interactions, and in climate and sustainability education.
