About this book

Authored by an acknowledged international authority in the field, this fourth edition of a bestseller continues to be the "classic" textbook for students and a valuable reference for researchers in the fields of oceanography, environmental chemistry, and geochemistry. Designed for both classroom use and self-study, this comprehensive survey of essential concepts incorporates a wealth of state-of-the-art reference data. Frank Millero, the longtime editor-in-chief for the journal, Marine Chemistry, maintains his trademark style of tying descriptions and theories to oceanic observations.
