by Daniel G. Strawn, Hinrich L. Bohn
English | 2020 | ISBN: 1119515181 | 379 Pages | PDF | 28 MB

Provides comprehensive coverage of the chemical interactions among organic and inorganic solids, air, water, microorganisms, and the plant roots in soil

This book focuses on the species and reaction processes of chemicals in soils, with applications to environmental and agricultural issues. Topics range from discussion of fundamental chemical processes to review of properties and reactions of chemicals in the environment. This new edition contains more examples, more illustrations, more details of calculations, and reorganized material within the chapters, including nearly 100 new equations and 51 new figures. Each section also ends with an important concepts overview as well as new questions for readers to answer.

Starting with an introduction to the subject, Soil Chemistry, 5th Edition offers in-depth coverage of properties of elements and molecules; characteristics of chemicals in soils; soil water chemistry; redox reactions in soils; mineralogy and weathering processes in soils; and chemistry of soil clays. The book also provides chapters that examine production and chemistry of soil organic matter; surface properties of soil colloids; adsorption processes in soils; measuring and predicting sorption processes in soils; soil acidity; and salt-affected soils.

  • Provides a basic description of important research and fundamental knowledge in the field of soil chemistry
  • Contains more than 200 references provided in figure and table captions and at the end of the chapters
  • Extensively revised with updated figures and tables

Soil Chemistry, 5th Edition is an excellent text for senior-level soil chemistry students.
