About this book


The fourth volume in the series ‘Fundamentals in Organic Geochemistry’ introduce to the methodological core of Organic Geochemistry, the analysis of organic substances in natural samples. Tools for identifying and quantifying organic substances at low concentration levels and in complex matrices are described on a basic level. Beside the instrumental tools, also principal approaches in data evaluation and practical aspects are covered.

Organic Geochemistry is a modern scientific subject characterized by a high transdisciplinarity and located at the edge of chemistry, environmental sciences, geology and biology. Therefore, there is a need for a flexible offer of appropriate academic teaching material on an undergraduate level addressed to the variety of students coming originally from different study disciplines. For such a flexible usage this textbook series consists of different volumes with clearly defined aspects and with manageable length.
