Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Traditionally the study of chemical principles as they relate to soil has been limited to the field of agronomics. Soil and Water Chemistry: An Integrative Approach, stands alone because it balances agricultural and environmental perspectives in its analysis of the chemical properties and processes that affect organic and inorganic soil substances.

Written for soil science practitioners, researchers, and students, this book provides a comprehensive treatment of soil composition and reactions. Topics include: clay mineralogy, soil organic matter, mineral weathering and stability, ion speciation, solubility, ion exchange, adsorption, oxidation-reduction, acidity, alkalinity, and salinity. Each chapter concludes with numerous exercises that emphasize concepts and have practical, real-world applications.

Book News Annotation:

Essington (agriculture, University of Tennessee) describes the soil environment and the chemical that operate to distribute matter between the soil solid, solution, and atmosphere, then introduces the concept of speciation and presents a list of common oxidation states and species for nearly every element as it might exist in the soil solution. The textbook is appropriate for undergraduate environmental and soil sciences majors and first year graduate students.

Synopsis:

Written with the needs of students, researchers, and practitioners in mind, this book provides a comprehensive treatment of the composition and chemical properties of soils and of the processes that govern their fate in the environment. Topics include: clay mineralogy, soil organic matter, mineral weathering and stability, aqueous speciation, surface chemistry, ion exchange, adsorption, molecular retention, oxidation-reduction, soil acidity, alkalinity, and salinity. It covers all the important aspects of environmental soil chemistry and includes methodologies, exercises with solutions, and topics related to a broad distribution of environments.

Synopsis:

Written for soil science practitioners, researchers, and students, this valuable resource provides a comprehensive treatment of soil composition and reactions. Each chapter concludes with numerous exercises that emphasize concepts and have practical, real-world applications.
