Aquatic chemistry : chemical equilibria and rates in natural waters by Werner Stumm( Book )

32 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 1,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like the previous editions, this substantially revised and updated Third Edition has been written to provide readers with a solid understanding of the general chemical principles underlying natural water chemistry: chemical thermodynamics and kinetics, acids and bases, dissolved carbon dioxide, atmosphere-water interactions, metal ions in aqueous solutions, precipitation and dissolution, oxidation and reduction, equilibria, and the solid-solution interface." "To help the reader grasp the essential elements of aquatic chemistry, the authors illustrate key principles with numerous quantitative examples and a full range of problem-solving methods, including algebraic, graphical, and numerical methods based on digital computation." "Designed for both reference as well as classroom use, Aquatic Chemistry, in this new edition, remains the authoritative resource on the fundamentals of natural water chemistry."--Jacket

The objectives of the Chemistry of Aquatic Systems: Local and Global Perspectives are: to illustrate how land, water and atmosphere are coupled by hydrogeochemical cycles and how these cycles affect the chemistry of natural waters; to strengthen our understanding of the cycling of nutrients, metals and organic carbon in marine and lacustrine systems; to give an account of current research and water technological applications of the processes occurring at the solid-water interface; and to illustrate how pollutants are transformed, degraded and transported, and how to link processes occurring at different spatial and temporal scales. This is a tutorial book, written in such a way that the general principles are understood before progressing on to theoretical models, laboratory systems and real-world processes

La quatrième de couverture indique : "La chimie des milieux aquatiques étudie la nature des substances dissoutes et en suspension dans les eaux naturelles et autres systèmes aquatiques, ainsi que les équilibres chimiques et les processus physico-chimiques dans lesquels ces substances sont impliquées. Cette discipline tient aussi compte des processus biologiques, géochimiques et physiques dans ces milieux. Cette cinquième édition a été entièrement révisée pour tenir compte des nouvelles avancées scientifiques et techniques d'analyse ainsi que de la chimie des milieux aquatiques. Sont ainsi abordés les nouveaux procédés de traitement de l'eau potable, le cycle du fer et son rôle comme nutriment dans les océans, les nanoparticules manufacturées, les xénobiotiques ... De nombreux exemples et des exercices corrigés illustrent les principes exposés. Des compléments (données thermodynamiques) sont accessibles sur le site"

Wissenschaft in Sorge um die Umwelt by Paul Donath( )

2 editions published in 1990 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Werner Stumm Ich möchte den nachfolgenden Vorträgen eine kleine Parabel voranstellen: Am Boden vieler Gewässer, an der SedimentlWasser-Grenzfläche, lebt ein kleiner Wunn (Tubifex). Er ernährt sich mit dem Vorderende und atmet Sauerstoff mit dem Hinterende. Dadurch befindet sich der Wunn gewissennassen in einem Konflikt: Wenn er tiefer in die nährstoffhaltige Schlammschicht eindringt, entzieht er sich der sauerstoffhaltigen Schicht und kann nicht mehr atmen; andererseits kann er atmen, aber sich nicht mehr ernähren, wenn er sich weiter hinauf in die sauerstoffreiche Wasserschicht begibt. Die Biologen haben dieses anschauliche Beispiel einer Antinomie - hier einer Ausspannung eines Organismus zwischen den Lebensschichten der Ernährung und der Atmung - gebraucht, um eine Grundeigenschaft, ein konstitutives Element aller Lebewesen zu verdeutlichen: Bedingungen der Lebenssicherung stehen in unvermeidlicher Wechselwirkung mit Möglichkeiten der Lebensgefährdung. Dieses konstitutive Element nimmt beim Menschen ein besonderes Ausrnass an, so beim Konflikt zwischen Nutzung der Natur und Umweltsicherung. Schon der Unnensch konnte nicht umhin, Ordnung in seiner Umwelt zu zerstören, um eigene Ordnung aufzubauen. Der zivilisierte Mensch ist gezwungen, diese Zerstörung zu vervielfachen, um die Struktur der kulturellen Zivilisation aufzubauen und zu erhalten. Dabei hat sich der Mensch in der Ökosphäre vom physiologisch unwichtigen Konsumenten zum geochemischen Manipulator entwickelt, welcher die externen Energie- und Materieflüsse für seine Zivilisation und für die Ausweitung seiner Dominanz ausnutzt
