Hydrogeochemistry of Aquatic Ecosystems

Discover the geological foundation of global water supply, focusing on resource conservation and restoration

Hydrogeochemistry explores the connections between the geology of a region and the chemical characteristics and quality of its water sources, including such factors as erosion, evaporation, and, increasingly, man-made activities. With the emergence of climate change as a major factor reshaping water quality and availability, the need to understand interactions between hydrochemistry and geology has never been greater.

Hydrogeochemistry of Aquatic Ecosystems meets this need by offering foundational knowledge about the hydrochemistry of different types of aquatic systems, the nature of their interactions with various pollutants and geological processes, and the possibilities and dangers of human intervention. With a particular focus on aqueous resource conservation and restoration, this is a vital, timely guide to a potentially life-saving subject.

Hydrogeochemistry of Aquatic Ecosystems readers will also find:
* Detailed treatment of water-sediment interactions, arsenic and fluoride enrichment, sand mining, and many other subjects
* Coverage throughout of solute acquisition processes, the carbon cycle, and nutrient geochemistry
* Case studies from Asia and Africa demonstrating both natural and anthropogenic hydrogeochemical interactions

Hydrogeochemistry of Aquatic Ecosystems is indispensable for professionals and researchers in environmental science and environmental engineering, as well as scholars and advanced graduate students working on aquatic ecosystems or effects of climate change.
