Geochemical Thermodynamics covers the relationships between heat and other forms of energy as they apply to the study of geochemistry. Since the publication of the first edition of this text, students have no longer had to glean their knowledge of thermodynamics from chemistry texts where geochemical applications were rarely covered. In this new updated edition particular attention is focussed on the applied sections, with added coverage of the applications relating to environmental geochemistry

Currently a senior scientist of 30 years experience with the US Geological Survey, Dr. D. Kirk Nordstrom is recognized internationally for his research on acid mine drainage, radioactive waste disposal, geothermal chemistry, and geochemical modeling. He has published more than 170 papers in hydrogeochemistry that include analytical chemistry, experimental geochemistry, thermodynamics, and development and evaluation of speciation models. Dr. Nordstrom received the Birdsall-Dreiss Distinguished Lectureship award from the Hydrogeology Division of the Geological Society of America, served on the Board of Radioactive Waste Management for the National Research Council, served as chairman of the Hydrogeochemical Group to the International Stripa Project, managing editor for geochemistry for Earth-Science Reviews, board member for the Thermal Biology Institute at Montana State University, fellow of the Geological Society of America and the Mineralogical Society of America, member of American Association for the Advancement of Science, Sigma Xi, International Mine Water Association, and International Association of Geochemists and Cosmochemists. He has consulted for numerous state, federal, and foreign government agencies, and advised 28 graduate students and 6 post-doctoral scientists. Dr. James L. Munoz, now retired, was professor of Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado. His research in experimental and metamorphic petrology provided considerable insight on the geochemistry of micas in hydrothermal systems and the role of halogens in ore deposits. He served as executive editor for American Mineralogist and was a fellow of the Mineralogical Society of America, a member of the Geological Society of America, and advised numerous undergraduate and graduate students in geochemistry and thermodynamics.Review:
“should be of interest to large numbers of earthscientists wishing better acquaintance with the application of thermodynamics to practical problems.” --Geology
”a good balance of theory and application, this is superior to any other available text at the graduate/undergraduate level. --Canadian Mineralogist
