About this book

Since 1980 a considerable amount of scientific research dealing with geochemical processes in marine sediments has been carried out. This textbook summarizes the state-of-the-art in this field of research providing a complete representation of the subject and including the most recent findings. The topics covered include the examination of sedimentological and physical properties of the sedimentary solid phase. A new chapter describes properties, occurrence and formation of gas hydrates in marine sediments. The textbook ends with a chapter on model conceptions and computer models to quantify processes of early diagenesis.

Media reviews
From the reviews of the second edition: "This volume will provide a high-level reference book in marine geochemistry for post-graduates and post-doctoral researchers in the earth sciences. ! In summary, this book provides a broad coverage of marine-sediment (bio)geochemistry. It is clearly written and well illustrated, with excellent diagrams and graphs. The quality of photographs, figures and layout is high. The price is affordable for students. ! I recommend it to all those entering this field at the M.Sc level or higher." (Vesselin Dekov, Journal of Sedimentary Research, August, 2007)
