Biogeochemistry of Estuaries offers a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to understanding biogeochemical cycling in estuaries. Designed as a text for intermediate to advanced students, this book utilizes numerous illustrations and an extensive literature base to impart the current state-of-the-art knowledge in this field. While many of the existing books in estuarine science are comprised of edited volumes, typically focused on highly specific topics in estuaries,Biogeochemistry of Estuaries provides, for the first time, a unique foundation in the areas of geomorphology, geochemistry, biochemistry, aqueous chemistry, and ecology, while making strong linkages (trhoughout the text) to ecosystem-based processes in estuarine sciences. Estuaries, located at the interface between land and the coastal ocean are dynamic, highly productive systems that, in many cases, have been historically associated with development of many of the great centers of early human civilization. Consequentially, these systems have and continue to be highly impacted by anthropogenic inputs. This timely book takes the foundational basis of elemental cycling in estuarine and applies it to estuarine management issues. Biogeochemistry of Estuaries will be welcomed by estuarine/marine scientists, ecologists, biogeochemists, and environmentalists around the world.

About the Author:

Thomas Bianchi is a Professor in the Department of Oceanography at Texas AandM University.

Review:


"The true strength of this book derives from the obvious passion Bianchi has for the subject. Each chapter is dense with references, clearly represents the state of knowledge with respect to estuarine science and incorporates more than 3000 references into the text, such that this book will be consulted for years to come." -- R. D. Pancost, Organic Geochemistry


"Overall, Biogeochemistry of Estuaries is well written and does a superb job of synthesizing information that heretofore was scattered across a wide range of books and/or journals. The book represents a major contribution to the field of estuarine science and should be of interest to students as well as those with more expertise in this field."--David Burdige, Eos


"This is a valuable book that collects a substantial amout of important information; the references alone are a worthwhile resource."--Ivan Valiela, The Quarterly Review of Biology


"With a writing style that is straightfoward and approachable, the author takes an integrative, approach to successfully describe the interplay of physical, chemical, and biological interactions that are the hallmark of these ever-changing systems."--Limology and Oceanography Bulletin


"Whether used by initiates to these complex systems or as a reminder of forgotten linkages, there is something in this text for anyone interested in the myraid of important processes in estuaries and their study."--Limology and Oceanography Bulletin


"The strong suit of this book is that it provides a comprehensive introduction over the range of important estuarine processes, particularly those related to organic-matter cycling. On more than one occasion, I found myself asking, "What about...?", only to find a descriptive section and references to my query on the next page." -- H. Rodger Harvey, Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin


"This volume is highly recommended for students and professionals alike. There's nothing else out there quite like it, and increased attention to the estuarine zone is clearly in society's future." --Lawrence M. Mayer, Elements
