Soil Chemistry

Sriniwas Puri (Author)
Synopsis Soil is key to sustaining life affecting air and water quality, the growth of plants and crops, and the health of the entire planet.  The complex interplay among organic and inorganic solids, air, water, microorganisms and plant roots in soil is the subject of soil chemistry, a reference pivotal to understanding of soil processes and problems.

Soil chemistry studies the chemical characteristics of soil.  Soil chemistry is affected by mineral composition, organic matter and environmental factors.  A knowledge of soil chemistry is paramount to predicting the fate, mobility and potential toxicity of contaminants in the environment.  

The present book illutrates the fundamental principles of soil chemistry with respect to environmental reactions between soils and other natural materials and heavy metals, pesticides, industrial contaminants and salts.  Timely and comprehensively discussions of applications to real-world environmental concerns are a central focus of this established text.  The book will be an excellent introductory resource for students studying this crucial topic.
