Book Description: An Introduction to Organic Geochemistry explores the fate of organic matter of all types, biogenic and man-made, in the Earth System. It investigates the variety of pathways and biogeochemical transformations that carbon compounds can experience over a range of time scales and in different environments.The scope of this second edition has been widened to provide a broad and up-to-date background. The authors have structured the text to accommodate readers with varied scientific backgrounds.

Petroleum geologists will also find it an invaluable source of information.Key topics covered include:the global carbon cycle and related elemental cycles; evolution of life and its influence on the carbon cycle through Earth history; production and chemical composition of biogenic matter; degradation vs. preservation of sedimentary organic matter in various environments; biological and thermal alteration in sediment, soil and water column; molecular and isotopic stratigraphy; greenhouse gases and palaeoclimatic variation; man's influence on biogeochemical cycles and global climate change; and factors affecting the behaviour of pollutants in the environment..
