About this book

Covers topics that deal with the chemistry of the atmosphere (air), the hydrosphere (water), and the terrestrial environment (soil). The book emphasizes the chemical principles - both descriptive and quantitative - which apply to environmental studies, and includes a broad range of examples and problem exercises.

this new edition improves on what was already an excellent textbook for its market. Education in Chemistry, 2007
