About this book


Rare Earth Elements in Groundwater Flow Systems is the first volume of its kind entirely focused on the geochemistry of the lanthanide series elements in groundwater/aquifer environments. Consisting of ten chapters, each of which is an original, peer-reviewed contribution by some of the leading researchers in the study of the low-temperature geochemistry of rare earth elements, the volume addresses analytical techniques, water-rock interactions, aqueous complexation, and the reactions/processes that influence these heavy metals along groundwater flow paths.

From the reviews:

"This is the first volume that addresses the geochemistry of the lanthanide series elements in natural groundwater flow systems. … Many charts and plots throughout clearly augment the materials. There are numerous chapter references. Valuable for students and academic and industrial professionals in hydrogeologic and environmental science and engineering. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students." (T. L. T. Grose, CHOICE, March, 2006)
