Geochemistry - 2nd edition

Geochemistry (ISBN10: 0133982726; ISBN13: 9780133982725)
ISBN13: 978-0133982725
ISBN10: 0133982726

Summary: This text covers the entire field of geochemistry -- assuming very little chemical and mathematical background on the part of students. It uses a blend of theory, laboratory, and field studies to show how geochemical principles can be used to solve specific geologic problems, and features many detailed examples of the application of geochemical principles to the study of natural waters, soil, and sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks. Assumes very little chemistr
y background -- explains all chemical principles needed to understand the geochemical topics. Devotes each of the first six chapters to a specific area of geochemistry -- reviewing pertinent chemical principles and concepts, summarizing basic data, and giving examples (recent and classic) of applications to geological problems. Highlights the important role of thermodynamics throughout. NEW--contains new/expanded coverage of: geochemical modeling. reaction kinetics. crystal bonding forces. nutrient cycling. chemical weathering. mineral distribution coefficients. geothermometry/geobarometry. environmental geochemistry. NEW--expands the chapter on isotope geology and emphasizes the many uses of isotopic data throughout the text. Contains a full chapter on organic geochemistry. NEW--integrates organic geochemistry topics into chapters on water chemistry and on sedimentary rocks. NEW--doubles the number of figures and tables. Uses cgs units rather than mkgs units -- since most tables of data are still given in cgs units. contains a table that summarizes and relates the cgs units to the SI system. Lists SI base and derived units on the inside back cover. Provides questions (with answers) at the end of each chapter. Includes a large number of references (classic and recent).
