biogeochemistry Books

  • Modern Biogeochemistry

    Modern Biogeochemistry is aimed to generalize modern ideas of biogeochemical developments during the last decades. It is designed to support a general course in biogeochemistry, and as such, is likely to have a broad market among the many universities and colleges that are adding such courses to their curricula. This book aims to supplement the ...

  • Biogeochemistry of Wetlands: Science and Applications

    Wetland ecosystems maintain a fragile balance of soil, water, plant, and atmospheric components in order to regulate water flow, flooding, and water quality. Marginally covered in traditional texts on biogeochemistry or on wetland soils, Biogeochemistry of Wetlands is the first to focus entirely on the biological, geological, physical, and ...

  • Carbon and Nutrient Fluxes in Continental Margins

    The book provides best estimates of carbon and nutrient fluxes in seven types of continental margins. In each type, these fluxes are reported in detail individually for 3-7 representative geographic regions, each of which is characterized by concise descriptions of the physical and biogeochemical settings. Drawn from the regional synthesis, a ...

  • Ocean Biogeochemistry

    Oceans account for 50% of the anthropogenic CO2 released into the atmosphere. During the past 15 years an international programme, the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS), has been studying the ocean carbon cycle to quantify and model the biological and physical processes whereby CO2 is pumped from the ocean's surface to the depths of the ocean, ...

  • Advances in Microbial Ecology, Volume 15

    Volume 15 covers such topical matter as the effects of ultraviolet radiation on phytoplankton and the ecology and biogeochemistry of in situ groundwater bioremediation. ...

  • Estuaries

    Aspects of the biogeochemistry of estuaries from a variety of environments, from the tropics to the Arctic, are discussed. In most cases the courses of these rivers have been altered by dams or diversions; the results of these changes on the nature of the estuary are also discussed, where such data is available. In the case of the Tasmanian ...

  • Trace Elements in Soil: Bioavailability, Flux, and Transfer

    Historically, research on the methods and amounts of trace element application to agriculture soils for correcting plant deficiencies has received major attention. More recently, due to industrial development and past disposal activities, trace elements are considered to be important environmental contaminants that affect all components in the ...

  • The Biosphere

    Long unknown in the West, The Biosphere established the field of biogeochemistry and is one of the classic founding documents of what later became known as Gaia theory. It is the first sustained expression of the idea that life is a geological force that can change Earth's landforms, its climate, and even the contents of its atmosphere. A ...

  • Biogeochemical Investigations of Terrestrial, Freshwater, and Wetland Ecosystems Across the Globe

    This volume contains reviewed papers from BIOGEOMON, The Fourth International Symposium on Ecosystem Behavior, held at the University of Reading in August 2002, and attended by over 260 participants from 25 countries. The papers in this volume focus on themes that have always been strong at BIOGEOMON, such as: - catchment monitoring and ...

  • Modern Biogeochemistry

    This book is aimed at generalizing the modern ideas of both biogeochemical and environmental risk assessment that have been developed in recent years. Only a few books are available for readers in this interdisciplinary area, since most books deal mainly with various technical aspects of ERA description and calculations. This text aims at ...

  • Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements in Coal and Coal Combustion Byproducts

    The research papers in this book were presented as part of the Fourth International Conference on the Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements. The purpose of the conference was to present current knowledge of the sources, pathways, behavior and effects of trace elements in soils, waters, plants and animals. Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements in Coal ...

  • Uranium, Mining and Hydrogeology

    Subject of the book is Uranium and its migration in aquatic environments. The following subjects are emphasised: Uranium mining, Phosphate mining, mine closure and remediation, Uranium in groundwater and in bedrock, biogeochemistry of Uranium, environmental behavior, and modeling. Particular results from the leading edge of international research ...

  • Ecosystem Modeling as a Management Tool for the Black Sea

    The Black Sea ecosystem is a unique marine environment. Its isolation from the ocean and large catchment basin, covering industrial and rural parts of the European and Asian continents, render the Black Sea ecosystem extremely vulnerable to the imposed environmental burdens Complex scientific problems related to the recent evolution of the ...

  • Pattern and Process in a Forested Ecosystem

    This volume draws on the Hubbard Brook Experiment to present an integrated picture of the structure, function, and development over time of the northern hardwood ecosystem in northern New England. Topics covered include important ecological problems such as the limits to primary production and biomass accumulation, biotic regulation of energy flow ...

  • Challenges of a Changing Earth

    This book presents a state-of-the-science overview of global change and its consequences for human societies. It highlights four areas of critical importance - food, water resources, air quality and the carbon cycle - from both science and policy perspectives, and points the way towards the new scientific approaches needed to study the Earth ...

  • Organic Metal and Metalloid Species in the Environment

    Subsequent to the profiling of organometal(loid) compounds in important biogeogenic and anthropogenic deposits, the importance of this class of compounds for human health are evaluated by the analysis of both physicochemical and biological formation, distribution and transformation processes. Multidisciplinary articles written by experts from ...

  • Past and Present Water Column Anoxia

    The papers gathered in this authoritative volume, partly based on presentations by 60 scientists attending a NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Past and Present Water Column Anoxia in Sevastopol, Ukraine, address the entire range of oxygen-deficient conditions and reflect the complexity of the issues governing the formation and persistence of ...

  • Marine Science Frontiers for Europe

    Europe is a continent with a high coast-to-surface ratio, and European seas encompass a broad range of settings and regimes. The sustainable development of living and non-living marine resources, the protection of the marine environment and the provision of marine-based services are critical to economic prosperity and to the quality of life of ...

  • Past and Present Water Column Anoxia

    The papers gathered in this authoritative volume, partly based on presentations by 60 scientists attending a NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Past and Present Water Column Anoxia in Sevastopol, Ukraine, address the entire range of oxygen-deficient conditions and reflect the complexity of the issues governing the formation and persistence of ...

  • Biogeochemistry of Forested Catchments in a Changing Environment

    The stability of forest ecosystems is affected by changes of environment conditions, like by increasing temperatures, increasing atmospheric CO2 and decreasing deposition rates of nutrients and acidity.This volume integrates the results of long term interdisciplinary ecosystem research at two forested watersheds in Germany with special emphasis on ...
