This book is intended to serve as a text for an introductory coursein geochemistry for undergraduate/graduate students with at leastan elementary–level background in earth sciences, chemistry,and mathematics.  The text, containing 83 tables and 181figures, covers a wide variety of topics — ranging fromatomic structure to chemical and isotopic equilibria to modernbiogeochemical cycles — which are divided into fourinterrelated parts: Crystal Chemistry; Chemical Reactions (andbiochemical reactions involving bacteria); Isotope Geochemistry(radiogenic and stable isotopes); and The Earth Supersystem, whichincludes discussions pertinent to the evolution of the solid Earth,the atmosphere, and the hydrosphere.

In keeping with the modern trend in the field of geochemistry,the book emphasizes computational techniques by developingappropriate mathematical relations, solving a variety of problemsto illustrate application of the mathematical relations, andleaving a set of questions at the end of each chapter to be solvedby students.  However, so as not to interrupt the flow of thetext, involved chemical concepts and mathematical derivations areseparated in the form of boxes.  Supplementary materials arepackaged into ten appendixes that include a standard–state(298.15 K, 1 bar) thermodynamic data table and a listing of answersto selected chapter–end questions.

About the Author:

Kula C. Misra is a Professor of Geology (Emeritus) at the University of Tennessee where he has taught geochemistry, economic geology, and environmental geology for more than 30 years.  He received a M.Tech degree in Applied Geology from the Indian Institute of Technology (Kharagpur) and, after working for about ten years as a field geologist, a Ph.D. degree in Geology from the University of Western Ontario (Canada).  His research papers have been published in several professional journals, and he is the author of the textbook Understanding Mineral Deposits published in the year 2000.  He is a member of several professional organizations and has served as a consultant to corporations and government agencies on subjects related to mineral deposits and environmental geochemistry.

Review:

“This is a good book to study if you want to build yourunderstanding of geochemistry on a solid quantitativefooting.”  (Open University Geological SocietyJournal, 1 May 2013)

“Overall, this seems to be a useful book for its intendedaudience . . . I would recommend the book to those outside ofgeochemistry to expand their knowledge of the topic before enteringthe subject matter at a higher level.” (Chromatographia, 28 March 2013)

“Summing Up:  Recommended.  Graduate studentsand above.”  (Choice, 1 January 2013)

“Overall this is an impressively thorough and up-to-datetext that is aimed at the ‘geological’ geochemist and Iwould certainly recommend it to such an audience.” (Geological Magazine, 2012)
