Aquatic chemistry: interfacial and interspecies processes by Chin Pao Huang, Charles R. O'Melia, James J. Morgan

By Chin Pao Huang, Charles R. O'Melia, James J. Morgan

Presents complete experimental and theoretical analyses of chemical reactions in multiphase, multispecies platforms. Explores the foundations and functions of floor chemistry, soil chemistry, microbiology, geochemistry, redox response, and colloid chemistry to environmental platforms. Examines the influence of abiotic and biotic interfaces on chemical reactions in aquatic surroundings structures. comprises chapters through Werner Stumm, the founding father of aquatic chemistry.

Kinetics of water-rock interaction

The geochemistry of the earth’s floor is managed via chemical equilibrium, and the kinetics of the process towards equilibrium. Many low temperature techniques, equivalent to weathering, don't achieve equilibrium other than over geologically very long time classes. The method of equilibrium will be defined by means of kinetic concept and the applying of kinetic conception to geochemical platforms has made enormous advances within the final numerous a long time.

Advances in the Study of Gas Hydrates

This publication had its genesis in a symposium on gasoline hydrates provided on the 2003 Spring nationwide assembly of the yank Institute of Chemical Engineers. The symposium consisted of twenty papers awarded in 4 classes over days. extra visitor authors have been invited to supply continuity and canopy themes now not addressed in the course of the symposium.

Principles of Stable Isotope Geochemistry

This is often the 1st devoted ebook to hide the fundamentals of quite a lot of solid isotope functions in a way acceptable for somebody getting into the sphere. while, it bargains adequate aspect – and diverse references and examples – to direct study for extra inquiry. Discusses different issues equivalent to hydrology, carbon in crops, meteorites, carbonates, metamorphic rocks, and so on.

Geochemistry of Colloid Systems: For Earth Scientists

Colloid technological know-how has been utilized via soil chemists and clay mineral­ ogists for a few years, and a few of an important reviews at the habit of colloids were contributed via them. Barring a number of remarkable exceptions, purely within the final decade have geochemists utilized colloid technology of their study and during this interval a lot paintings has been released.

19)]. They concluded that " ... no model will yield an unambiguous description of adsorption ... ". To this conclusion one may add that no model should provide such a description, :2. SPOSITO Adsorption as a Problem in Coordination Chemistry 43 so long as goodness-of-fit to adsOIption data is the sole criterion of model accuracy. Recognizing this dilemma, Stumm et al. (6) added this sage advice in the third article of the Croatica Chemica Acta series: Thus, all the models may be viewed as being of the correct mathematical forms to represent the data but are not necessarily an accurate physical description at the interface.
