Environmental chemistry is an increasingly popular option on many chemistry courses, is a degree subject in its own right at some institutions, and is a key part of many environmental, earth and life science courses. Environmental Chemistry at a Glance illustrates both the operation of chemical processes in the environment and their integration with physical and biological processes. While the emphasis is on environmental chemical processes, the material in the book is placed in the wider context of the physical and biological sciences, giving an integrated approach to the environment from a chemist's point of view and providing background information in these other disciplines for the environmental chemist. Based on the highly successful and student friendly "at a glance" approach, the information is presented in integrated, self contained double page spreads of text and illustrative material, to facilitate the rapid assimilation, understanding and recall of critical concepts, facts and definitions. Students wanting a comprehensive and accessible overview of environmental chemistry will find this book an ideal source of the information they require.
In addition, the structured presentation will provide an invaluable aid to revision for students preparing for examinations.
