Chemistry of the Environment, third edition (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


Chemistry of

the Environment, 3rd edition,

is a concise, clear and current account of today's environmental issues and the

science one needs to understand them. This intermediate-level text, which

recommends General Chemistry as a prerequisite, systematically lays out themes

of sustainability, atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biospheres, while

stressing the interconnectedness of environmental problems and solutions.

The completely revised third edition explains the natural chemical cycles, and

how humans affect them. It also analyzes strategies for ameliorating human

impacts. This stimulating new text uses concise, straightforward language and an

accessible narrative style to inform

quantitative thinking.


A detailed

Instructors' Manual is available for adopting professors.

Art and

tables from the textbook may be downloaded by adopting professors.
