Soil and Environmental Chemistry, Second Edition, offers a holistic, practical approach to the application of environmental chemistry to soil science that includes over 100 spreadsheet files that supplement the text as a means of migrating problem-solving from calculator-based to spreadsheet-based. With an expanded set of problems and solutions and added coverage of key topics such as sample collection, water chemistry simulation, and soil carbon cycle models, this updated edition is a must-have reference for soil scientists in environmental chemistry. Designed to equip the reader with the chemistry knowledge and problem-solving skills necessary to validate and interpret data, this book combines valuable soil chemistry concepts into the big picture. Includes additional pedagogy, such as key terms and real-world scenarios Supplemented by over 100 spreadsheets to migrate readers from calculator-based to spreadsheet-based problem-solving that are directly linked from the text Includes example problems and solutions to enhance understanding Significantly revised chapters link to a companion site that reflects advances in the field, including expanded coverage of such topics as sample collection, soil moisture, soil carbon cycle models, water chemistry simulation, alkalinity, and redox reactions
