Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Overall, and without a doubt, the second edition of this book is an excellent textbook for intermediate to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in soil chemistry and biogeochemistry, as well as a useful reference for academics and professionals working in the areas of soil, biogeochemistry, hydrology, and related environmental sciences."--Vadose Zone Journal

Reviews of prior edition

"Inclusion of this text in one's personal library is a must because of the wealth of useful reference material and well-developed examples of soil chemical phenomena."-Soil Science

"A very useful resource for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in environmental science, hydrology, agriculture, and related."-CHOICE

"The book can be recommended for everyone with an interest in soil science . . . . It will enable students to rapidly become familiar with modern methods of treating problems in soil science. The style and presentation of the book are exemplary." -International Chemistry

"This well written book can be highly recommended to all students and scientists who are interested in soil science, hydrology and environmental research" -Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science

"The Chemistry of Soils is a well written and concise treatise on soil chemistry, clearly targeted at the intermediate student of this discipline. However, it contains insightful discussion of a number of topics of interest to all students of surficial geochemical processes and is a useful addition to all students, academics and professionals working in those areas." -Geochemica et Cosmochimica Acta
