He is the author of two widely adopted textbooks, Kinetics of Soil Chemical Processes and Environmental Soil Chemistry (two editions) published by Academic Press. Dr. Environmental Soil Chemistry illustrates fundamental principles of soil chemistry with respect to environmental reactions between soils and other natural materials and heavy metals, pesticides, industrial contaminants, acid rain, and salts. Timely and comprehensive discussions of applications to real-world environmental concerns are a central focus of this established text.
Written by a multidisciplinary group of soil and environmental scientists, Biophysico-Chemical Processes of Heavy Metals and Metalloids in Soil Environments provides the scientific community with a critical qualitative and quantitative review of the fundamentals of the processes of pollutants in soil environments. The book covers pollutants' speciation, mobility, bioavailability and . He is the author or coauthor of publications. These include: 11 edited books, 53 book chapters, and refereed papers.

The prevailing climatic conditions highly determine the nature of weathering process that will take place and the rates of physical and chemical processes. Climate directly has an effect on the kind of vegetation in an area which in turn will affect the soil formation processes related to root penetration and vegetation cover. Description Researchers in geomorphology, geochemistry, quaternary geology, soil science, and mineralogy will welcome this volume, the first to focus exclusively on rates of silicate chemical weathering. Consisting largely of previously unpublished data from six countries, the volume examines the latest experimental, modelling, and field results.
A number of plants and animals may create chemical weathering through release of acidic compounds, i.e. the effect of moss growing on roofs is classed as weathering. Mineral weathering can also be initiated or accelerated by soil microorganisms. Lichens on rocks are thought to increase chemical weathering rates. For example, an experimental.

Below A lies the B mature soils this layer is characterized by an accumulation of clay (small particles less than mm [ inch] in diameter) that has either been deposited out of percolating waters or precipitated by chemical processes involving dissolved products of weathering. Clay endows B horizons with an array of diverse structural features (blocks, columns, and. soil zone, oxidation of organic matter and root respiration is a source of replenishment of CO2 to the soil air. As new water from recharge events passes through the soil, biochemical and hydrochemical processes in the soil are therefore capable of providing a continuing supply of acidity to promote mineral-water reactions. The reaction of free.
