Hites Ronald A. Elements of Environmental Chemistry ISBN: 9781118309896 verne j from the earth to the moon and round the moon isbn 9785521057641
From Reviews of the First Edition: «This splendid, at times humorous, and reasonably priced little book has much to commend it to undergraduate chemists and to other science students.» —J. G. Farmer, University of Edinburgh «Complex environmental issues are presented in simple terms to help readers grasp the basics and solve relevant problems.» —J. Albaiges, University of Barcelona «The main strength of the book lies in its explanations of the calculation of quantitative relationships. Each chapter includes 15-20 problems that are carefully chosen from a didactic standpoint, for which the reader can find solutions at the end.» —D. Lenoir, Institute for Ecological Chemistry «What drew me to the first edition was the style – the no nonsense, down-to-earth explanations and the practical examples that litter the text. The dry humor expressed in the footnotes is great and reminds me of other classic texts.» —T. Clough, Lincoln University A practical approach to environmental chemistry Providing readers with the fundamentals of environmental chemistry and a toolbox for putting them into practice, Elements of Environmental Chemistry, Second Edition is a concise, accessible, and hands-on volume designed for students and professionals working in the chemical and environmental sciences.

Kula Misra C. Introduction to Geochemistry. Principles and Applications ISBN: 9781444347180 verne j from the earth to the moon and round the moon isbn 9785521057641
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.
