About this book

Since the book first appeared in 1976, it has found widespread acceptance as a reliable and detailed source of information. This third edition details methods determining trace and ultra-trace analysis of organic and inorganic seawater constituents, volatile halocarbons, dimethyl sulphide, photosynthetic pigments and natural radioactive tracers, applications of X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy and various electrochemical methods for trace metal analysis. Also deals with the determination of the partial pressure of carbon dioxide as part of standardised procedures to describe the marine CO2 system.
