By Steven Emerson,John Hedges

the rules of chemical oceanography supply perception into the methods regulating the marine carbon cycle. The textual content deals a heritage in chemical oceanography and an outline of the way chemical parts in seawater and ocean sediments are used as tracers of actual, organic, chemical and geological tactics within the ocean. the 1st seven chapters current easy themes of thermodynamics, isotope systematics and carbonate chemistry, and clarify the effect of existence on ocean chemistry and the way it has developed within the fresh (glacial-interglacial) prior. this can be via issues necessary to realizing the carbon cycle, together with natural geochemistry, air-sea fuel trade, diffusion and response kinetics, the marine and surroundings carbon cycle and diagenesis in marine sediments. . perfect as a textbook for upper-level undergraduates and graduates in oceanography, environmental chemistry, geochemistry and earth technology and a worthwhile reference for researchers in oceanography.
