KEY BENEFIT: Assuming no advanced knowledge of any single science, this clear survey/teaching book provides a background for most students of marine science as well as a general base from which the professional marine chemist can progress into specialized studies. It highlights the interrelationships that exist among the various marine processes, emphasizing the chemistry of seawater as a common link, and provides comprehensive coverage of the carbon dioxide system and its role in most areas of marine science.

Providing an engaging introduction to marine chemistry, this book highlights the ocean's geochemical interactions with the solid earth and atmosphere. With new end-of-chapter problems and summaries, plus appendices listing key properties, equations and constants for calculating oceanographic processes, this new edition provides the fundamental tools for students of oceanography.About the Author:
Michael E. Q. Pilson is Emeritus Professor of Oceanography at the Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island and has taught a course on chemical oceanography for most of the past 40 years. For some years, he directed the Marine Ecosystems Research Laboratory at Rhode Island, conducting experimental study of biogeochemistry in shallow coastal waters. Professor Pilson has published around 90 papers on chemical, physical, biological, ecological and geological aspects of oceanography and has advised students in chemical and biological areas. His broad range of experience has shaped his oceanography course to be accessible and interesting to students with diverse backgrounds, interests and professional goals.
