Need help in understanding the key concepts of aquatic chemistry? If you're looking for a unique, thorough introduction to aquatic chemistry that is easy to understand, you have found it! The book you are now holding provides a detailed, hands-on introduction to aquatic equilibrium chemistry, calculation methods for systems at equilibrium, applications of aquatic chemistry, and chemical kinetics. More than just a presentation of facts, this essential text includes equilibrium calculation software, which allows you to build complex models by applying equilibrium calculation principles. This book has been designed to be easy to use and easy to understand. Here's how it works: Each chapter begins with an introduction that provides a guide to chapter material and ends with a summary that reviews the chapter's main points. Important terms are defined in context and key ideas are summarized in the margins. Thoughtful Pauses throughout the presentation provide provocative questions whose answers are found in the text. This simulates the give-and-take found in the classroom. Examples illustrate key quantitative concepts. Each major division of the text begins with a case study. A portion of the case study is addressed in each subsequent chapter illustrating the principles of that chapter.James N. Jensen is the author of 'A Problem-Solving Approach to Aquatic Chemistry', published 2003 under ISBN 9780471413868 and ISBN 0471413860.
