Comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the basics of soil chemistry

Although only a meter in depth over the earth's surface, 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 soil processes and problems.

Thoroughly reorganized for ease of use, this updated Third Edition of Soil Chemistry summarizes the important research and fundamental knowledge in the field in a single, readily usable text, including:

  • Soil-ion interactions
  • Biogeological cycles and pollution
  • Water and soil solutions
  • Oxidation and reduction
  • Inorganic solid phase and organic matter in soil
  • Weathering and soil development
  • Cation retention (exchange)
  • Anion and molecular retention
  • Acid and salt-affected soils

New to the Third Edition is an enhanced emphasis on soil solution chemistry and expanded coverage of phosphate chemistry and the chemical principles of the aqueous phase. At the same time, the book has retained the clear examination of the fundamentals of the science of soil that has distinguished earlier editions. Complete with SI units and end-of-chapter study questions, Soil Chemistry is an excellent introductory resource for students studying this crucial topic.

From the Inside Flap:

Soil Chemistry, 2nd Edition is a thoroughly updated expansion of the author’s highly successful earlier book, linking basic solution and colloidal chemistry, clay mineralogy, and the soil chemistry literature. It describes the major processes of change that soils undergo, including weathering, clay mineral formation, cation retention, and anion and molecular retention. Professors Bohn, McNeal, and O’Connor examine the relationship between these processes and the major problems of soil acidity, salinity, and flooded soils, and provide complete coverage of how these processes and problems interact with, and are affected by, the biosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere. Unique features of the second edition include:

  • a new chapter on soil organic matter, providing greater balance between organic and inorganic soil chemistry
  • SI units now used as the standard measure
  • a chapter of relevant background chemical data to provide a uniform starting point
  • repeated reference to associations from the periodic table and to grouping of elements exhibiting similar properties in soils
  • a list of study questions and annotated bibliography following each chapter
Soil Chemistry, 2nd Edition offers a broad-based view in which the authors express their opinions on a variety of historical and current areas. It is a comprehensive introduction to the subject for science students needing a thorough grounding in soil chemistry, and an invaluable reference to the latest scientific data for researchers in agronomy, ecology, and soil science.
