Soil is key to sustaining life---affecting air and water quality, growth of plants and crops, and health of the entire planet. Soil Chemistry 4e provides a comprehensive coverage of chemical interactions among organic and inorganic solids, air, water, microorganisms, and plant roots in soil.

The fourth edition of Soil Chemistry has been revised and updated throughout and provides a basic description of important research and fundamental knowledge in the field. The text covers chemical processes that occur in soils, including distribution and species of nutrients and contaminants in soils; aqueous chemistry of soil solutions and mineral dissolution; oxidation and reduction reactions in soils; soil mineral formation processes and properties; formation and reactivity of soil organic matters; surface chemistry and cation, anion, and organic compound adsorption reactions; modeling of soil chemical reactions; and reactions in acid- and salt-affected soils.

Although extensively revised with updated figures and tables, the fourth edition maintains its focus on introductory soil chemistry that has distinguished the earlier editions. New chapters on properties of elements relevant to soil chemistry and a chapter with a special focus on soil surface characteristics have been added. Special Topics boxes are also included in this edition that includes examples, noteworthy topics, and case studies. End of chapter questions are included as a resource for teaching.
