The book is a quantitative treatment of the theory and natural variations of light stable isotopes, and includes more than 100 original applications. Isotope distribution is rigorously discussed in the context of fractionation processes, thermodynamics, mass conservation, exchange kinetics and diffusion theory. The theoretical principles are illustrated with natural examples, emphasizing oygen and hydrogen isotope variations in natural waters, terrestrial and extraterrestrial rocks, and hydrothermal systems. New data on meteoric precipitation, rivers, and hydrothermal systems are included.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Reacting to what he sees as an unfortunate migration of funding from fundamental scientific research to applications deemed politically important, Criss seeks to reconnect the diverse observations of isotope distributions to the quantitative theories of physical chemistry emphasized by earlier scientists. Instead of case histories, which he cites only when they exemplify quantitative principles or convey new and important possibilities, he offers translations of the principles of statistical and classical thermodynamics, kinetics, and diffusion theory into the language of isotope distribution, the fundamental variable of which is the isotope ration."--SciTech Book News
