Encyclopedia of Geochemistry

by Springer

Geochemistry uses the methods and philosophies of chemistry to explore and understand the Earth from the most elementary levels. The field has moved on from a prehistoric interest in metals, chert and clay, to become a modern science, utilizing sophisticated techniques to understand the Earth's processes and evolution. By looking deeply into ...;

Treatise on Geochemistry

by Elsevier BV

The application of chemistry to the study of the Earth has ancient roots. In the 20th century the subject became the organized and identifiable discipline called geochemistry, largely due to the pioneering work of F.W. Clarke, V.M. Goldschmidt, partly because of innovations in instrumentation, sampling techniques, and methodology, partly because ...;

Marine Geochemistry

by Springer

Since 1980 a considerable amount of scientific research dealing with geochemical processes in marine sediments has been carried out. This textbook summarizes the state of the art in this field of research. The topics comprise the examination of sedimentological and physical properties of the sedimentary solid phase, of pore water and pore water ...;

Groundwater Geochemistry

by Springer

The second edition of 'Groundwater Geochemistry – A practical guide to modeling of natural and contaminated aquatic systems' remains a comprehensive text book offering beginners and advanced modelers alike a minimum theoretical background and a strong focus on the practical solution of geochemical modeling with PHREEQC. The new edition covers the ...;

Geochemistry, Groundwater and Pollution

by CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group

'Building on the success of its 1993 predecessor, this 2nd edition of Geochemistry, Groundwater and Pollution has been thoroughly re-written, updated and extended into a complete and authoritative account of modern hydrogeochemistry. Offering a quantitative approach to the study of groundwater quality and the interaction of water, minerals, gases, ...;

Stable Isotope Geochemistry

by Springer

Stable Isotope Geochemistry is an introduction to the use of stable isotopes in the geosciences. It is subdivided into three parts: theoretical and experimental principles; fractionation processes of light and heavy elements; the natural variations of geologically important reservoirs. Since the application of stable isotopes to earth sciences has ...;

Geochemistry of Soil Radionuclides

by Soil Science Society of America

Recurring concerns about the environmental fate and potential health impacts of radionuclides continue to focus interest on understanding the mechanisms controlling their transport in soils and their biological availability. This work builds on both basic science and empirical engineering studies to provide a mechanistic approach to facilitate ...;

Surface Geochemistry In Petroleum Exploration

by Springer

The application of surface geochemical methods to finding petroleum is based on the detection of hydrocarbons in the soil that have leaked from a petroleum reservoir at depth. While the seal over the deposit was once considered impermeable, surface geochemistry data now show that such leakage is a common occurrence. Despite its simplicity ...;

Environmental Geochemistry in Tropical and Subtropical Environments

by Springer

Twenty contributions on diverse aspects of the environmental geochemistry in tropical and sub-tropical environments make up this monograph. They summarize original research not readily available elsewhere in the literature. Most of the chapters include extensive original data that will be very useful to researchers interested in the tropics and ...;

Geochemistry of Clay-Pore Fluid Interactions

by Springer

30% discount for members of The Mineralogical Society of Britain and IrelandThis book contains review papers covering such issues as the geometrical characterization of porous solids and particle aggregates using synchroton radiation techniques. A review of the phenomenon of overpressuring primal global distribution of clay minerals, and the use ...;

Cold Aqueous Planetary Geochemistry with FREZCHEM

by Springer

This book explicitly investigates issues of astrobiological relevance in the context of cold aqueous planetary geochemistry. At the core of the technical chapters is the FREZCHEM model, initially developed over many years by one of the authors to quantify aqueous electrolyte properties and chemical thermodynamics at subzero temperatures. FREZCHEM, ...;

Composition, Geochemistry and Conversion of Oil Shales

by Springer

The last 15 years has seen the development of a number of innovative process concepts, such as fluid-bed pyrolysis and hydroretorting which have enabled considerably higher oil yields to be obtained than by simple retorting. To understand these phenomena, detailed structural information is clearly required on the organic matter present in ...;
