About this book

This no-nonsense text outlines today's most important approaches to ananlyzing mineral surfaces, modeling their reactivity, and extrapolating the results to understand real-world problems. The author includes expert discussions on the origins of life, global warming, and environmental degradation. Mechanistic models are highlighted, making it easy for you to visualize structures.
