3.0 out of 5 stars Aquatic Chemistry text for introductory course April 19 2002
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst book ever Sept. 23 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars okay i like it Jan. 16 2013
By ny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
several lines in each page are distorted, yet i understand this is a fault of the publisher
BUT there is a scratch on the back cover
life is not easy at all when you feel obliged to buy a textbook and there is scratch in your loved book

today i just found a typo in page 427 in equation 16.
