Download it once and read it on your Kindle device, PC, phones or tablets. Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading Isotope Geochemistry (Wiley Works). This book provides a comprehensive introduction to radiogenic and stable isotope geochemistry. A following chapter covers the closely related techniques such as fission-track and carbon-14 dating.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of geochemistry. These basic concepts are then applied to understanding processes in aqueous systems and the behavior of trace elements in magmatic systems

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of geochemistry

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of geochemistry. Subsequent chapters introduce radiogenic and stable isotope geochemistry and illustrate their application to such diverse topics as determining geologic time, ancient climates, and the diets of prehistoric peoples. The focus then broadens to the formation of the solar system, the Earth, and the elements themselves.

William White teaches geochemistry as a Professor of earth and atmospheric sciences at Cornell University. in geology from the University of California, Berkeley and a PhD in oceanography from the University of Rhode Island. He is a Fellow of the Geochemical Society/European Association of Geochemistry and the AGU and has been named a highly cited author by ISI.

Clear concise summaries of all topics in geochemistry. Covers both theory and application of geochemistry in a wide range of earth science topics. Print + eBook 499,00 €. price for Russian Federation (gross). This book was awarded the best Multivolume Reference in Science PROSE Award in 2019 by The Association of American Publishers (AAP).

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field ofgeochemistry. The book first lays out the ‘geochemicaltoolbox’: the basic principles and techniques of moderngeochemistry, beginning with a review of thermodynamics andkinetics as they apply to the Earth and its environs. These basicconcepts are then applied to understanding processes in aqueoussystems and the behavior of trace elements in magmaticsystems.  Subsequent chapters introduce radiogenic and stableisotope geochemistry and illustrate their application to suchdiverse topics as determining geologic time, ancient climates, andthe diets of prehistoric peoples. The focus then broadens to theformation of the solar system, the Earth, and the elementsthemselves. Then the composition of the Earth itself becomes thetopic, examining the composition of the core, the mantle, and thecrust and exploring how this structure originated. A final chaptercovers organic chemistry, including the origin of fossil fuels andthe carbon cycle’s role in controlling Earth’s climate,both in the geologic past and the rapidly changing present.

Geochemistry is essential reading for all earth sciencestudents,  as well as for researchers and appliedscientists  who require an introduction to the essentialtheory of geochemistry, and a survey of its applications in theearth and environmental sciences.

I am familiar with geochemistry since more than 35 years. Consequently, I certainly know several textbooks in the field. However, when I started to know the William M. White book "Geochemistry" years ago in its e-book format I immediately realized that there is no other equal book in the field. Few weeks ago, I decided to buy its paper printed copy via Amazon. I got it almost the next week, a marvelous text in hand anytime I'd like to consult it. It is rather close to be complete, so I have no hesitation to assign it the highest rating possible. I like its approach, the foundation of its thermodynamic and the kinetic toolboxes before going into the geological details and applications, and in particular I clearly admire its dealing with isotope geochemistry since no modern textbook on geochemistry would be interesting if it did not deal with environmental stable and radiogenic isotopes involvement in geology and the environment. I strongly recommend this book to all serious students, professors and research workers in environmental sciences, geology, water resources, chemistry, thermodynamics, isotope hydrology and geochemistry and for sure to those who are permanently involved with the practical geochemistry studies and the associated engineering / environmental problems. A great book indeed, I love it, I keep it all the time close to my work desk and at home. It is difficult to find any other comprehensive book that covers its field in its successful, its unique way, its high-standard quality, and the information this book provides.

Geochemistry by William White is an excelent review of the main themes in geochemistry. It is quite complete and goes through the different subjects with very clear and consistent expositions. As a geochemistry professor for more than 30 years I do recommend this book.
Nightscar
Thorough and up to date. The field has progressed along with advances in computer (thermodynamic) modeling and incorporation of rigorous physics, and texts more than 15 years old are a bit dated. Book does a good job of presenting both old and new.

I have Just read the first chapter. So far the content of the book is excellent, rigorous yet clear, however, my major complain is that there are so many typos in the mathematical symbols and equations, such as lower case vs. upper case, subscript/superscript and hat/overbar,. Considering this book is quite mathematically-sophisticated, these typos make the reading sometimes confusing.
Bulace
This book is one of the few comprehensive geochem textbooks that is written for a 1st or 2nd year grad student! Very detailed explanation about concepts. Great illustrations and a concise synthesis at the end of each chapter.
Alsanadar
Very good text for understanding the basic principles of geochemistry. Not too complicated or difficult to understand.
