  • Description
  • Contents

This new edition of a bestseller presents updated technology advances that have occurred since publication of the first edition. It increases the utility and scope of the content through numerous case studies and examples and an entirely new set of problems and solutions. The book also has an accompanying instructor's guide and presents rubrics by which instructors can increase student learning and evaluate student outcomes, chapter by chapter. The book focuses on the increasing importance of water resources and energy in the broader context of environmental sustainability. It’s interdisciplinary coverage includes soil science, physical chemistry, mineralogy, geology, ground pollution, and more.

  • Covers technology advances since publication of the first edition
  • Includes new case studies and examples, problem sets, instructor lecture materials, and a solutions manual
  • Examines alternative energy supplies, notably geothermal energy, which has been identifIed as a source with potential that far exceeds current use- discusses the thermal properties of soil, etc
  • Addresses the biosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere, and subsystems (geomicrobiosphere)
  • Offers downloadable custom Excel sheets- for example, formulae pre-programmed such that one could explore how quicldy a contaminant (e.g., arsenic, chromium, etc.) passes through saturated soil
