First Sentence
A poet physicist once calculated how many atoms from Plato's body each of us has appropriated as our own-probably in excess of 1012. Read the first page

Format: Hardcover
I used this text for a one-quarter introductory Aquatic Chemistry course. The tableau method to solve equilibrium problems was positively received only by about half the students. Other texts used for this course are Pankow and Stumm and Morgan. (None of them were free of difficulties. Stumm and Morgan still serves as the best reference; but readability is a problem for an introductory course.) Morel does a good job in the treatment of metal ion kinetics.

There aren't many good things to say about this book (except that I got rid of it). You have to read it with the authors around you to get a clue what they're talking about.

Depens on your use... Sept. 27 2010
By TraceMetalChemist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Excellent as a desk reference for aquatic chemists...as a textbook, leaves much to be desired. Its a challenging read, wholly inappropriate for an undergraduate course, and still challenging for a graduate course. Stumm and Morgan is probably preferable as a textbook...

As an environmental engineer, this has been a great book for examining aqueous systems. It's been helpful being able to more accurately predict properties, such as pH and alkalinity, without the use of probes.
Principles and Applications of Aquatic Chemistry Aug. 12 2011
By perik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I found the book very helpful in understanding the water chemistry, which I need to do in my work. It takes some time to grasp big parts of it, so the book is not useful for undergraduate students who do not plan to work with water treatment or specialise in water chemistry.
