Wadsworth, Belmont. Environmental mineralogy book important points needed to be made in closing this introductory chapter: Mineralogy and therefore mineralogists are important to environmental sciencethe techniques of mineralogy, which are aimed at characterising key natural solid materials, their relationships and interactions both with each other and with fluids and gases, offer unique insights into very important parts of our environment. As an example study, consider the case of a leaking solvent tank which has entered the habitat soil of an endangered species of amphibian.

Robert H. In recent years, arsenic has been recognized as a widespread, low-level, natural groundwater contaminant in many parts of the world, particularly in places such as West Bengal and Bangladesh, where it has given rise to chronic human-health issues. Plotze ; nuclear waste C. Chapter 6 Leybourne and Johannesson presents a review on the measurement of arsenic speciation in environmental media: sampling, preservation, and analysis.

Biologists would analyze subsequent impacts to aquatic flora and fauna from increases in water turbidity. David J. However, it is intended to Environmental mineralogy book the way for those who wish to pursue scholarship and research in the field.
While it must surely be an essential volume on the bookshelf of any researcher in the field, it also contains much of interest for the less specialist, but environmentally aware, reader.
These include long established techniques used to characterise minerals and mineral associations, and the newer methods that can be used to study very fine particle solids, mineral surfaces, and interactions between mineral surfaces and fluids. Main article: Environmental chemistry Environmental chemistry is the study of chemical alterations in the environment.
