Biogeochemistry of Intertidal Sediments (Cambridge by T. D. Jickells, J. E. Rae

By T. D. Jickells, J. E. Rae

This authoritative quantity comprises contributions from a variety of researchers of intertidal sediments. person chapters discover the underlying biogeochemical tactics controlling the habit of carbon, the nutrition nitrogen and phosphorus, and contaminants akin to poisonous organics, hint metals and synthetic radionuclides in intertidal environments. The biogeochemistry of those environments is important to realizing their ecology and administration. all of the chapters features a accomplished overview and the result of contemporary learn. The participants are lively researchers during this diversified and ecologically vital box. this article is principally for researchers and executives operating with intertidal sediments, however it also will function a helpful senior undergraduate and graduate reference textual content in environmental chemistry, environmental technology, earth technology, and oceanography.

Isotope Geology

Radiogenic and strong isotopes are used greatly within the earth sciences to figure out the a long time of rocks, meteorites and archeological items, and as tracers to appreciate geological and environmental approaches. Isotope equipment verify the age of the Earth, aid reconstruct the weather of the prior, and clarify the formation of the chemical components within the Universe.
