In Environmental Soil and Water Chemistry, leading soil and water authority V. Evangelou presents a complete overview of the principles and applications of soil science, addressing the subject by viewing the interactions between soil and water as a basis for understanding the nature, extent, and treatment of polluted soil and s: 1.

Environmental Soil and Water Chemistry is designed to serve as a beginning textbook for college seniors and beginning graduate students in environmental sciences, and is tailored specifically to the disciplines of soil science, environmental science, agricultural engineering, environmental engineering, and environmental geology.

This book uses computer modeling for water and soil chemistry, providing students with the models used by practicing environmental chemists. It includes examples and complex problems with worked solutions, as well as examples based on real data that expose students to the real problems and data they will face in their careers.

Abstract. Soil and environmental chemists simulate water chemistry using a host of chemical equilibrium reactions and constants. In most water chemistry problems we need to adjust concentrations using activity coefficients; otherwise the ion concentration product will yield an equilibrium coefficient whose numerical value depends on the concentration of dissolved ions.
