As concern mounts about the fate of hazardous waste in the environment, and the role of anthropogenic chemicals in global warming, environmental chemistry is growing in prominence in the undergraduate curriculum. This textbook assumes little prior knowledge of chemistry and is structured around the water cycle. The fully revised edition retains an emphasis on describing how natural geochemical processes operate over a variety of scales in time and space, and how the effects of human perturbations can be measured.
I can strongly recommend this book as a basic text for all those who wish to gain an initial understanding of the chemistry of the Earth and the way humans are interacting with their environment. Peter O'Neill, University of Plymouth, Progress in Physical Geography, June 2005 "Overall, this book is a valuable addition to reading lists for students taking undergraduate level courses primarily in Environmental Science, but also in Physical Geography, Earth Sciences and Environmental Chemistry. It is very readable and well written." International Journal of Climatology, April 2006 "If I had to recommend one single textbook for courses in environmental science to students and all those interested from other fields, it would be this one. It is an excellent introductory reader and learning aid."Environmental Biology
