About this book

Marine Geochemistry offers a fully comprehensive and integrated treatment of the chemistry of the oceans, their sediments and biota. The first edition of Marine Geochemistry received strong critical acclaim and was described as "a standard text for years to come". This third edition of Marine Geochemistry has been written at a time when the role of the oceans in the Earth System is becoming increasingly apparent.

Following the successful format adopted previously, this new edition treats the oceans as a unified entity, and addresses the question "how do the oceans work as a chemical system?" To address this question, the text has been updated to cover recent advances in our understanding of topics such as the carbon chemistry of the oceans, nutrient cycling and its effect on marine chemistry, the acidification of sea water, and the role of the oceans in climate change. In addition, the importance of shelf seas in oceanic cycles has been re-evaluated in the light of new research.

Marine Geochemistry offers both students and research workers an integrated approach to one of the most important reservoirs in the Earth System.
