This streamlined third edition is an accessible introduction to thermodynamics, specifically tailored to Earth and environmental science students. Beginning at an elementary level, it gradually builds to a treatment of real-world geological and environmental problems. Exercises and solutions are provided with each chapter, and further supplementary resources are available online.
Rocks are crucial constituents of our lives, not only making the solid ground beneath our feet, but breaking up into the soil that feeds our crops, and providing the metal ores and other materials vital for civilization. This Very Short Introduction introduces the structure and diversity of rocks on Earth,...
Isotope Geochemistry: The Origin and Formation of Manganese Rocks and Ores is a comprehensive reference on global manganese deposits, including their origins and formations. Manganese is both a significant industrial chemical, critical for steel-making, and a strategic mineral, occurring in abundance only in certain countries. Furthermore, it is used effectively...
This book provides basic tools to understand relations between plants and soil. It also details methods to interpret x-ray diffraction spectra used to identify clay minerals.
The first comprehensive overview of planet formation for students and researchers in astronomy, cosmochemistry, laboratory astrophysics and planetary sciences.
Presented in this new, full-color edition, with the first polychrome phase diagrams to be published, this geoscientific atlas is backed by the author's unrivalled dataset, and amounts to the most complete survey yet of phase relations in Earth's chemistry.
Metasomatism and the Chemical Transformation of Rock: The Role of Fluids in Terrestrial and Extraterrestrial Processes
This book examines how metasomatism influences and helps to control both the evolution and stability of the crust and lithospheric mantle.
By Ros Rickaby
This book demonstrates that biology and geochemistry have continually influenced each other in the co-evolution of the Earth and all life.
