An Introduction to Environmental Chemistry (2nd Edition))

File Size: 5.89 Mb

In revision of this book we have tried to respond to constructive criticism from reviewers and students who have used the book and at the same time have pruned and grafted various sections where our own experience as teachers has prompted change. Not least, of course, science has moved on in the eight years since we prepared the first edition, so we have had to make some substantial changes to keep up with these developments, especially in the area of global change.

We have tried to retain the ethos of the first edition, using concise and clear examples of processes that emphasize the chemistry involved. We have also tried to highlight how the chemistry, processes or compounds interlink between the chapters and sections, so that no compartment of environmental science is viewed in isolation.

The substantial changes include more emphasis on organic chemistry, soils, contaminants in continental water and remediation of contaminated land. To do this effectively, the terrestrial environments chapter from the first edition has been split into two chapters dealing broadly with solids and water. We have reorganized the box structure of the book and have placed some of the original box material, augmented by new sections, to form a new chapter outlining some of the basic chemical principles that underpin most sections of the book.
