  • Description
Stumm and Morgan’s Aquatic Chemistry remains the classic resource on the essential concepts of natural water chemistry. The fourth edition, updated by Dr. James Jensen, continues the tradition of the three previous editions, which were designed for both self-study and classroom use.  The new volume builds a solid foundation in the general principles of natural water chemistry and then proceeds to a thorough treatment of more advanced topics including applications and case studies. It illustrates key principles with a wide range of quantitative models, examples, and problem-solving methods. In addition, Jensen updates, organizes, and corrects inconsistencies from the third edition, while maintaining Aquatic Chemistry’s reputation of as one of the most respected fundamental water chemistry textbooks.

Specifically, the fourth edition improves on the third edition by:

1: Correcting errors. The third edition has nomenclature inconsistencies, which will be corrected in the new edition.

2: Reorganizing -   Aquatic Chemistry has grown by accretion.  As a result, chapters have been added to the end of the text over the editions without significant reorganization of the preceding material.  In addition, material left intact from older editions generally was not edited for style in later editions.  This has lead to an inconsistent “look and feel” of the second and third editions. The fourth edition addresses these problems by reorganizing the chapters into three sections: water chemistry principles (current Chapters 1 and 2), equilibrium types (current chapters 3-9), and applications (current Chapters 10-15). Case studies will be added to supplement the applications section. 

3: Updating, Expanding, and Emphasizing.  The primary areas for updating the text include applications of inorganic carbon chemistry (e.g., chemistry of global warming and carbon sequestration), surface chemistry (developments since the introduction of surface complexation), and references cited. The author will also expand the material on the chemistry of treatment processes.The fourth edition has stronger emphasis on pedagogy, with more extensive explanatory text in many existing sections.  The summary tables (previously used so effectively only in the early chapters) will be included in all chapters.
