About The Books

Soil is a mixture of inorganic and organic solids, air and water. Soil chemistry involves the chemical reactions and processes between these components and particularly focuses on investigating the fate of contaminants and nutrients within soils. Knowledge of soil chemistry allows scientists to monitor, control and predict the effects of pollutants in the environment. Chemical knowledge combined with understandings from the Earth sciences, physics and biology are needed to understand, prevent and remediate environmental issues with soils. Learn the secrets of soil chemistry and its role in agriculture and the environment. Examine the fundamental laws of soil chemistry, how they affect dissolution, cation and anion exchange, and other reactions. Explore how water can form water-bridges and hydrogen bonding, the most common forces in adsorption, chelation, and more. This book is intended for use by researchers, scientists and engineers in their research or in their professional practice, and for use as a textbook in one-semester or onequarter courses on soil chemistry or biogeochemistry.
