"An Introduction to Marine Biogeochemistry" focuses on the ocean's role in the biogeochemical cycling of selected elements and the impact of humans on the cycling of these elements. Among the topics covered are the chemical composition of seawater from the perspectives of elemental speciation and the impacts of solutes on water's physical behavior; biogeochemical phenomena which control accumulation and preservation of marine sediments; marine chemistry of radioactive and stable isotopes; and seawater pollution.The book contains many examples as well as steady-state models to aid readers in understanding this growing and complex science. The focus of "Introduction to Marine Biogeochemistry" is the concept of the ocean as a system, linking land and atmospheric processes. The text integrates the most current research, allowing students to learn concepts in context. It includes detailed coverage of computational aspects. It offers an online companion site, including a full study guide, available for students.
