This is the first book of its kind to focus on the geochemistry of the lanthanide series elements in groundwater/aquifer environments. The contributors are leading researchers in the study of low-temperature geochemistry of rare earth elements. Individual chapters address analytical techniques, water-rock interactions, aqueous complexation, and the reactions and processes that influence these heavy metals along groundwater flow paths.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This is the first volume that addresses the geochemistry of the lanthanide series elements in natural groundwater flow systems. … Many charts and plots throughout clearly augment the materials. There are numerous chapter references. Valuable for students and academic and industrial professionals in hydrogeologic and environmental science and engineering. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students." (T. L. T. Grose, CHOICE, March, 2006)
