From Reviews of the First Edition:
"This splendid, at times humorous, and reasonably priced little book has much to commend it to undergraduate chemists and to other science students." J. G. Farmer, University of Edinburgh
"Complex environmental issues are presented in simple terms to help readers grasp the basics and solve relevant problems." J. Albaiges, University of Barcelona
"The main strength of the book lies in its explanations of the calculation of quantitative relationships. Each chapter includes 15-20 problems that are carefully chosen from a didactic standpoint, for which the reader can find solutions at the end." D. Lenoir, Institute for Ecological Chemistry
"What drew me to the first edition was the style the no nonsense, down-to-earth explanations and the practical examples that litter the text. The dry humor expressed in the footnotes is great and reminds me of other classic texts." T. Clough, Lincoln University

The basics of environmental chemistry and a toolbox for solving problems
Elements of Environmental Chemistry uses real-world examples to help readers master the quantitative aspects of environmental chemistry. Complex environmental issues are presented in simple terms to help readers grasp the basics and solve relevant problems. Topics covered include: steady- and non-steady-state modeling, chemical kinetics, stratospheric ozone, photochemical smog, the greenhouse effect, carbonate equilibria, the application of partition coefficients, pesticides, and toxic metals. Numerous sample problems help readers apply their skills. An interactive textbook for students, this is also a great refresher course for practitioners.About the Author:
