Summary Aquatic Environmental Chemistry is designed for readers having basic chemical and mathematical knowledge, and includes material and examples suitable for undergraduate students in the early stages of chemistry, environmental science, geology, irrigation science, and oceanography courses. The format adopted consists of two parallel columns - the inner column is the main body of the book and can be read on its own, while the outer column is a source of useful secondary material with comments on the main text, explanations of unusual terms, and guidance through mathematical steps
Equilibrium inorganic chemistry underlies the composition and properties of the aquatic environment, and provides a sound basis for understanding natural geochemical processes and the behaviour of inorganic pollutants in the environment. Aquatic Environmental Chemistry covers the composition and underlying properties of both freshwater and marine systems, and explains the effects of acidity, complexation, oxidation and reduction processes, and sedimentation, within this framework
