Biogeochemistry of Intertidal Sediments (Cambridge by T. D. Jickells, J. E. Rae

By T. D. Jickells, J. E. Rae

This authoritative quantity contains contributions from quite a lot of researchers of intertidal sediments. person chapters discover the underlying biogeochemical strategies controlling the habit of carbon, the meals nitrogen and phosphorus, and contaminants comparable to poisonous organics, hint metals and synthetic radionuclides in intertidal environments. The biogeochemistry of those environments is necessary to realizing their ecology and administration. all of the chapters contains a finished overview and the result of contemporary learn. The individuals are energetic researchers during this various and ecologically very important box. this article is especially for researchers and bosses operating with intertidal sediments, however it also will function a useful senior undergraduate and graduate reference textual content in environmental chemistry, environmental technology, earth technological know-how, and oceanography.

This e-book explicitly investigates problems with astrobiological relevance within the context of chilly aqueous planetary geochemistry. on the middle of the technical chapters is the FREZCHEM version, in the beginning built over a long time by way of one of many authors to quantify aqueous electrolyte homes and chemical thermodynamics at subzero temperatures.

Environmental Applications of Geochemical Modeling

This ebook discusses the applying of geochemical versions to environmental perform and stories, by using various case reports of real-world environmental difficulties, akin to acid mine drainage, pit lake chemistry, nuclear waste disposal, and landfill leachates. In every one instance the authors essentially outline the environmental possibility in query; clarify how geochemical modeling will help resolve the matter posed; and propose the reader find out how to arrange enter documents for geochemical modeling codes and interpret the consequences when it comes to assembly regulatory requisites.
