Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This outstanding text brings together fundamental information about the natural chemistry of the Earth and its atmosphere and the environmental impacts of anthropogenic chemicals. It is well suited for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students and researchers in chemistry, Earth sciences, and atmospheric science.” - Mark Jacobson, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Stanford University, author of ‘Air Pollution and Global Warming

“Both authors have excellent scientific standing and complementary backgrounds. They have combined well on this excellent textbook, based on their long experience of teaching environmental chemistry to undergraduate students at the University of Copenhagen. There are many textbooks on environmental chemistry aimed at undergraduate and graduate courses, but this is one of the best that I have come across. It will be adopted on courses in every university for the next decade and beyond due to its logical and comprehensive contents. I strongly recommend this excellent textbook for environmental chemistry and related courses at the graduate and undergraduate level.” - Naohiro Yoshida, Department of Environmental Chemistry & Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology

“Harnung and Johnson have produced a textbook on environmental chemistry that is firmly rooted in physical and chemical principles and follows a strict quantitative and analytical approach. Nevertheless, the accessible style and informative footnotes make it a joy to read and explore for graduate students and professionals alike. It perfectly fills the gap left by more phenomenological introductions to the field.” - Jan Kaiser, Department of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia

"thorough, well-written, advanced work...A thorough understanding of this material could occupy a full academic year and would provide a valuable graduate education in environmental chemistry..Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers/faculty, professionals." - D.H. Stedman, University of Denver, Choice, April 2013
