About this book

Reflecting rapid changes in our knowledge of the earth's chemistry, this revision is more quantitative, gives more attention to environmental issues, and places greater emphasis on the application of geochemistry to geological problems than its predecessor. Using examples from actual field and laboratory studies, the authors give students a feeling for the application of geochemistry for many kinds of earth-science inquiry.
