Global Environment: Water, Air, and Geochemical Cycles

Global Environment: Water, Air, and Geochemical Cycles Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on "Global Water Cycles," 1987, this paperback volume can be used to supplement a core geochemistry text or as a stand-alone text. Written by two well-known researchers, this text provides a multidisciplinary approach to a number of environmental topics on water, air, and atmospheric chemistry. Coverage ranges from aspects of geology, oceanography and meteorology, to environmental science, soil science, biogeochemistry, and limnology. Features coverage on atmospheric chemistry with emphasis on the carbon cycle, the most up-to-date statistics on the greenhouse effect, and the ozone hole. Reflects the inclusion of non-aqueous topics on atmospheric chemistry (such as atmospheric CO2" and ozone). Covers a large number of environmental topics on water and atmospheric chemistry. Emphasizes natural processes that affect the major elements as they provide a background against which to measure human-induced changes.

Book News Annotation:

Details the geochemical cycles of the major chemical components of rocks, air, water, and life as they occur naturally and as they are perturbed by humans, providing an integrated approach to global geochemistry and environmental problems and introducing fundamental concepts of geology, biogeochemistry, oceanography, meteorology, and limnology. Assumes a solid knowledge of elementary chemistry but no other science background. For junior and senior undergraduates. Extensive data on natural fluxes of chemicals will be of reference value to researchers.

Synopsis:

For use as a supplement to a core geochemistry text or as a stand alone text, this work provides a multidisciplinary approach to environmental topics on water, air, and atmospheric chemistry.

Synopsis:

In this book the geochemical cycles of the major chemical components of rocks, water, air, and life are discussed as they occur naturally and as they are perturbed by humans. Quantitative estimates are given of the fluxes of elements between major earth surface reservoirs including the atmosphere, rainwater, rocks, terrestrial and marine biota, rivers, lakes, and the oceans. The approach is worldwide in scope. The book provides an integrated approach to global geochemistry and environmental problems and introduces the reader to some fundamental concepts of geology, biogeochemistry, oceanography, meteorology, and limnology. It provides an extensive and valuable source of data for professionals while at the same time being understandable to anyone with an elementary chemical background.
