This course will provide extensive discussions on the chemistry of inorganic and organic soil components, soil solution–solid phase equilibria, sorption phenomena, kinetics of soil chemical processes, redox reactions, soil pollution, pollutants-soil solution interactions, and analytical techniques for assessing soil pollution. Each topic will contain sample problems and explanations of parameters and terms. These should be very useful to students taking their first course in soil chemistry. This is a comprehensive and contemporary course for undergraduate students in soil science and for students and professionals in environmental chemistry and engineering, marine studies, and geochemistry.
