Abstract:

"Essentials of Geochemistry provides students with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of and approaches to modern geochemical analysis, Dr. Walther's text uses a "concepts of chemical equilibrium" approach, which considers the reactions that occur as a result of changes in heat production and pressure within the Earth to introduce students to the basic geochemical principles. This text is for those who want a quantitative treatment that integrates the principles of thermodynamics, solution chemistry, and kinetics into the study of earth processes. Recognizing that many methods for solving environmental problems are chemical in nature, Dr. Walther includes environmental approaches."--Jacket.
