Summary

Aquatic Chemistry Concepts is the first book to really fill the need for a true, easy-to-use aquatic chemistry textbook that will be easy for students to understand. It is ideal for courses in environmental engineering, civil engineering, oceanography, and other departments that teach aquatic chemistry. Environmental consultants in all fields, regulators, and libraries will consider this text as an excellent reference for its clear explanation of aquatic chemistry principles.

Discusses such topics as acids and bases, CO2 chemistry, dissolution of minerals, environmental redox chemistry, and chemistry of charged particles

Explains the chemistry of lakes, rivers, sea water, and ground water

Provides an invaluable reference

Excellent textbook!
