Synopsis

Marine Geochemistry offers a fully comprehensive andintegrated treatment of the chemistry of the oceans, theirsediments and biota. The first edition of the book received strongcritical acclaim and was described as ‘a standard text foryears to come.’ This third edition of MarineGeochemistry has been written at a time when the role of theoceans in the Earth System is becoming increasingly apparent.

 Following the successful format adopted previously, thisnew edition treats the oceans as a unified entity, and addressesthe question ‘how do the oceans work as a chemicalsystem?’  To address this question, the text hasbeen updated to cover recent advances in our understanding oftopics such as the carbon chemistry of the oceans, nutrient cyclingand its effect on marine chemistry, the acidification of sea water,and the role of the oceans in climate change. In addition, theimportance of shelf seas in oceanic cycles has been re-evaluated inthe light of new research.

Marine Geochemistry offers both undergraduate andgraduate students and research workers an integrated approach toone of the most important reservoirs in the Earth System.
