Introduction to Geochemistry Book Excerpt:

This book is intended to serve as a text for an introductory course in geochemistry for undergraduate/graduate students with at least an elementary?level background in earth sciences, chemistry, and mathematics. The text, containing 83 tables and 181 figures, covers a wide variety of topics ? ranging from atomic structure to chemical and isotopic equilibria to modern biogeochemical cycles ? which are divided into four interrelated parts: Crystal Chemistry; Chemical Reactions (and biochemical reactions involving bacteria); Isotope Geochemistry (radiogenic and stable isotopes); and The Earth Supersystem, which includes discussions pertinent to the evolution of the solid Earth, the atmosphere, and the hydrosphere. In keeping with the modern trend in the field of geochemistry, the book emphasizes computational techniques by developing appropriate mathematical relations, solving a variety of problems to illustrate application of the mathematical relations, and leaving a set of questions at the end of each chapter to be solved by students. However, so as not to interrupt the flow of the text, involved chemical concepts and mathematical derivations are separated in the form of boxes. Supplementary materials are packaged into ten appendixes that include a standard?state (298.15 K, 1 bar) thermodynamic data table and a listing of answers to selected chapter?end questions.

Introduction to Geochemistry Book Excerpt:

Reflecting rapid changes in our knowledge of the earth's chemistry, this revision is more quantitative, gives more attention to environmental issues, and places greater emphasis on the application of geochemistry to geological problems than its predecessor. Using examples from actual field and laboratory studies, the authors give students a feeling for the application of geochemistry for many kinds of earth-science inquiry.

Geochemistry Book Excerpt:

From measuring geological time, through unravelling the evolution of continents, ocean and mantle, to understanding climate change, modern geochemistry is a discipline which pervades nearly all of the Earth Sciences. Geochemistry provides a broad introduction to the subject, which concentrates on the inorganic chemistry of the condensed part of our planet. This new textbook is written by the author of the authoritative and widely acclaimed Introduction to Geochemical Modelling (Cambridge, 1995). Emphasizing general principles rather than specific observations, Professor Albarède leads the reader through the simplest concepts of physics and chemistry behind geochemical processes. He covers fields central to geochemistry, such as crystal chemistry, mass balance and element transport, and geochemical dynamics. A broad range of applications is introduced, in natural water systems, the deep Earth and planetary processes. Geochemistry is an ideal textbook for undergraduate students, and will also provide an accessible introduction for researchers working in related fields.

Introduction to Geochemistry Book Excerpt:

Throughout the book, attention is continually directed to the relations between theoretical formulas and results of controlled laboratory experiments, as well as to geologic field observations. The book begins with an introduction to chemical equilibrium, concentrating on the carbonate and silicate equilibria that are important in geologic environments. Next comes a brief look at the chemistry of crystalline solids and reactions at mineral surfaces.

Geochemistry Book Excerpt:

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field ofgeochemistry. The book first lays out the ‘geochemicaltoolbox’: the basic principles and techniques of moderngeochemistry, beginning with a review of thermodynamics andkinetics as they apply to the Earth and its environs. These basicconcepts are then applied to understanding processes in aqueoussystems and the behavior of trace elements in magmaticsystems. Subsequent chapters introduce radiogenic and stableisotope geochemistry and illustrate their application to suchdiverse topics as determining geologic time, ancient climates, andthe diets of prehistoric peoples. The focus then broadens to theformation of the solar system, the Earth, and the elementsthemselves. Then the composition of the Earth itself becomes thetopic, examining the composition of the core, the mantle, and thecrust and exploring how this structure originated. A final chaptercovers organic chemistry, including the origin of fossil fuels andthe carbon cycle’s role in controlling Earth’s climate,both in the geologic past and the rapidly changing present. Geochemistry is essential reading for all earth sciencestudents, as well as for researchers and appliedscientists who require an introduction to the essentialtheory of geochemistry, and a survey of its applications in theearth and environmental sciences.

Introduction to Analytical Methods in Organic Geochemistry Book Excerpt:

All sub disciplines in Organic Geochemistry (Petroleum Geochemistry, Environmental Geochemistry etc.) are linked by the basic analytical approaches used for identification and quantitation of individual organic substances. Hence, a fundamental prerequisite for organic geochemists is the knowledge not only about the individual analytical techniques but more about their potential as well as their limitations. In this issues basic analytical procedures and techniques are introduced comprising fundamental steps like sampling and sample storage, aspects of sample treatment like extraction and fractionation procedures and finally the specific techniques used for organic analyses on partially very low concentration levels such as mass spectrometry or infrared spectroscopy. Beside the technical aspects also application on organic-geochemical problems and the standard data evaluation practice is introduced. Finally, special chapters point to analytical pitfalls and to principal standard operation procedures. The intention of this issue is to get the readers familiar with analytical Organic Geochemistry and to enable them to assess the quality and suitability of specific analytical approaches, in particular with respect to the organic-geochemical problems.

Introduction to Geochemistry Book Excerpt:

Geochemistry is the science that uses the tools and principles of chemistry to explain the mechanisms behind major geological systems such as the Earth's crust and its oceans. The realm of geochemistry extends beyond the Earth, encompassing the entire Solar System and has made important contributions to the understanding of a number of processes including mantle convection, the formation of planets and the origins of granite and basalt. Geochemistry for undergraduate/graduate students with at least an elementary-level background in earth sciences, chemistry, and mathematics. In keeping with the modern trend in the field of geochemistry, the book emphasizes computational techniques by developing appropriate mathematical relations, solving a variety of problems to illustrate application of the mathematical relations, and leaving a set of questions at the end of each chapter to be solved by students.

Environmental Geochemistry Book Excerpt:

It is the policy of the federal Canadian Forestry Service to sponsor research initiatives from the private sector that are judged to be pertinent to its mandate and offer particular promise towards the optimal management of Canadian forest resources. This book is based on such an initiative. It represents the philosophy of the author himself and is in no way constrained by the views of the sponsoring agency. Over the past two decades Dr J. A. C. Fortescue has become well known at a number of research centers throughout the world. He has pioneered the approach to environmental understanding that is comprehensively developed in this text. The limitations of traditional compartmentalized approaches are depre cated and the case is made for a holistic rethinking of basic concepts and princi ples. Landscape Geochemistry is the disciplinary outcome that gives expression to this rethinking. It may be viewed as the minimum scale of conceptual approach necessary in the environmental sciences to solve present-day problems and to exploit future opportunities.
