Abstract

The objectives of this book are: (i) to illustrate how land, water and atmosphere are coupled by hydrogeochemical cycles and how these cycles influence the chemistry of natural waters; (ii) to strengthen understanding of the cycling of nutrients, metals and organic carbon in marine and lacustrine systems; (iii) to give an account of current research and water technological applications of the processes occurring at the solid/water interface; (iv) to illustrate how pollutants are transformed, degraded and transported, and how processes occurring at different levels of space and time are linked. The book progresses from theoretical models and laboratory systems to application in natural water, soil and geochemical systems, concentrating on understanding the processes that regulate the distribution, concentration and fate of reactive elements and pollutants. Selected examples of the relationships between microscopic-scale phenomena and changes in geochemical cycles are illustrated with reference to remote sensing observations.
