Summary: Geochemical Thermodynamics (Second Edition), first published in 1994, takes the reader beyond the fundamental principles of thermodynamics to true geochemical applications. You will find the most complete coverage of the phase rule, chemography, solid solutions, ionic activities in the mixed aqueous electrolytes, and chemical potential diagrams for multiphase systems, plus other concepts central to geochemical theory. Throughout, there is an emphasis on environmentally relevant examp ...show moreles and applications.New sections include: ? thermobarometry applications for igneous and metamorphic rocks; ? expanding information on electrolytes at high temperature and pressure; ? a new chapter on geochemical modeling; and ? substantially updated and expanded references. ? a new appendix containing internally consistent enthalpies, entropies, heat capacities, and free energies, and equilibrium constants for a limited number of elements, ions, non-silicate minerals, and reactions at 298.15K and 1 atmosphere that are particularly useful for hydrogeochemical modeling.?This book presents the thermodynamics of geochemical systems, with applications ranging from groundwater to magmas. It should be of interest to a large number of earch scientists wishing better acquaintance with the application of thermodynamics to practical problems.? Geology?There is a good balance of theory and application, and the book is superior to any other available text at the graduate or undergraduate level?I can strongly recommend this book, having used it for a third-year undergraduate geochemistry course. It is most appropriate for physical geochemistry course with an emphases on thermodynamics. Researchers in petrology oriented fields will also find the book useful?
