Cold Aqueous Planetary Geochemistry with FREZCHEM: From by Giles M. Marion

By Giles M. Marion

This ebook explicitly investigates problems with astrobiological relevance within the context of chilly aqueous planetary geochemistry.

At the center of the technical chapters is the FREZCHEM version, before everything constructed over a long time via one of many authors to quantify aqueous electrolyte homes and chemical thermodynamics at subzero temperatures. FREZCHEM, of basic relevance to biogeochemists and geochemical modelers, chilly planetary scientists, physicochemists and chemical engineers, is for this reason utilized to the exploration of biogeochemical functions to sunlight structures our bodies often, and to speculations in regards to the limits for all times in chilly environments in particular.

Cold Aqueous Planetary Geochemistry with FREZCHEM: From Modeling to the Search for Life at the Limits

This booklet 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, before everything built over decades through one of many authors to quantify aqueous electrolyte homes and chemical thermodynamics at subzero temperatures.

Environmental Applications of Geochemical Modeling

This booklet discusses the applying of geochemical types to environmental perform and experiences, by using a variety of case reports of real-world environmental difficulties, comparable to acid mine drainage, pit lake chemistry, nuclear waste disposal, and landfill leachates. In every one instance the authors essentially outline the environmental risk in query; clarify how geochemical modeling can assist resolve the matter posed; and recommend the reader find out how to arrange enter documents for geochemical modeling codes and interpret the consequences when it comes to assembly regulatory standards.
