About this book

Soil and Environmental Chemistry emphasizes the problem-solving skills students will need when they enter their chosen field. Combining valuable soil chemistry concepts into the "big picture" by discussing how other soil and environmental factors affect the soil chemical concepts being discussed makes the text relevant to today's soil science curriculums. This revised reprint provides edits to formulas, numbers, and text. Use of computer modeling for water and soil chemistry provides students with the models used by practicing environmental chemists. Examples and complex problems with worked solutions included throughout the text. Examples based on real data provide exposure to the real problems and data that students will face in their careers.
