About this book

Noble Gas Geochemistry discusses the fundamental concepts of using noble gases to solve problems in the earth and planetary sciences. The discipline offers a powerful and unique tool in resolving problems such as the origin of the solar system, evolution of the planets, earth formation, mantle evolution and dynamics, atmospheric degassing and evolution, ocean circulation, dynamics of aquifer systems, and numerous applications to other geological problems. This book gives a comprehensive description of the physical chemistry and cosmochemistry of noble gases, before leading on to applications for problem-solving in the earth and planetary sciences. There have been many developments in the use of the noble gases since publication of the first edition of this book in 1983. This second edition has been fully revised and updated. The book will be invaluable to graduate students and researchers in the earth and planetary sciences who use noble gas geochemistry techniques.

Contents

1. Introduction; 2. Physical chemistry; 3. Cosmochemistry; 4. Waters; 5. Crust; 6. The Mantle; 7. Noble gases in the Earth; References; Index.

' ! likely to remain a highly relevant introductory text for years to come ! lucid and easy style of presentation: there is a great deal of useful, accessible reference data ! invaluable to geochemists and will find wide use as an introduction to the subject for a range of non-specialists at both the undergraduate and graduate level.' R. K. O'Nions, Nature 'The book led to my discovery or rediscovery of many interesting facts about the geochemistry of the rare gases and strongly tempts me to teach a graduate seminar on the subject.' John T. Wasson, American Scientist '! an excellent book, both as an introduction to its subject, and as a review of research in the field. ! Anyone interested in the development of the earth and its atmosphere will find this an interesting overview.' William R. Green, Geophysics '! certainly recommended to anyone involved in, or who feels that they ought to be involved in, noble gas studies !' Geological Magazine '! Ozima and Podosek are to be commended for bringing together the rather disparate aspects of noble gas research in a successful fashion. They have produced a clear text amply illustrated with diagrams and tables. The informal and lucid style of writing has led to an easily read text ! suitable as a textbook for a graduate course ! heartily recommended to students and professional geoscientists.' Kenneth A. Foland, Chemical Geology
