By Werner Stumm

Offers an advent to the chemistry of the solid-water interface, progressing from the easy to extra complicated and utilized. Discusses the $64000 interfaces in normal structures, in particular geochemistry, in ordinary waters, soils and sediments. The strategies taking place at mineral-water, particle-water and organism-water interfaces play serious roles in regulating the composition and ecology of oceans and clean waters, the improvement of soils and plant nutrient's provide, keeping the integrity of water repositories and in such purposes as water know-how and corrosion technological know-how.

Evolution of the Levant Margin and Western Arabia Platform since the Mesozoic (Geological Society Special Publication 341)

This quantity combines unique info in numerous fields from the offshore Levant Basin and adjoining continental slopes and structures. the 1st staff of papers rfile the tectonic buildings and sedimentological styles linked to the improvement of the Levant Basin. They determine the successive rifting occasions from the past due Palaeozoic to the Early Cretaceous, by way of a reasonable tectonic job.

Phanerozoic Phosphorite Depositional Systems: A Dynamic Model for a Sedimentary Resource System (Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences)

The ebook provides a brand new and entire version for the improvement of phosphate sediments. beginning with geochemistry and together with new equipment in sedimentology (sequence stratigraphy), it leads to an interdisciplinary method of a source process masking all fields of phosphate geology. For researchers, academics and scholars alike the booklet deals a whole review of the full box together with case reports of significant deposits.

Example text

With the help of such constants one can describe how the concentration of reactive elements (metal ions, ligands) in soils, waters and sediments depend on the distribution between surfaces and the solution and on pH and other solution variables. The geochemical fate of most trace elements is controlled by the reaction of solutes with solid surfaces. 3: Stoichiometry of H+ Release by Binding of Metal Ions; The Kurbatov Plot Metal ion binding to hydrous oxides can occur as monodentate or bidentate surface complexes (Eqs.

Why can dilute solutions of metal ions (pH >7) not be stored in glass vessels? 10) Check the validity of the following statement: If a suspension of a hydrous oxide does not change its pH upon addition of NaN03 then this pH value is the pH pzc .

The driving force for this water absorption is the coordinative unsaturation of the (non-hydrous) oxide. , reduction of NO).
