Environmental soil chemistry: an overview -- Inorganic soil components -- Chemistry of soil organic matter -- Soil solution-solid phase equilibria -- Sorption phenomena on soils -- Ion exchange processes -- Kinetics of soil chemical processes -- Redox chemistry of soils -- The chemistry of soil acidity -- The chemistry of saline and sodic soils -- Appendix A: Periodic table of the elements. "Clearly and concisely written for undergraduate and beginning graduate students of soil science, Environmental Soil Chemistry, 2nd Edition is accessible to all students and professionals of environmental engineering and science. Chapters cover background information useful to students new to the discipline, including the chemistry of inorganic and organic soil components, soil acidity and salinity, and ion exchange and redox phenomena. Discussion also extends to sorption/desorption, oxidation-reduction of metals and organic chemicals, rates of pollutant reactions as well as technologies for remediation of contaminated soils. New to the 2nd Edition is discussion of several important developments in soil chemistry such as synchrotron-based spectroscopic & microscopic techniques and molecular environmental science. Supplementary reading lists, sample problems, and extensive tables and figures make this textbook accessible to readers."--Jacket.
