This introductory text explains the fundamentals of the chemistry of the natural environment and the effects of mankind's activities on the earth's chemical systems.

  • Retains an emphasis on describing how natural geochemical processes operate over a variety of scales in time and space, and how the effects of human perturbation can be measured.
  • Topics range from familiar global issues such as atmospheric pollution and its effect on global warming and ozone destruction, to microbiological processes that cause pollution of drinking water deltas.
  • Contains sections and information boxes that explain the basic chemistry underpinning the subject covered.
  • Each chapter contains a list of further reading on the subject area. Updated case studies.

  • No prior chemistry knowledge required.
  • Suitable for introductory level courses.
