Biogeochemistry : an analysis of global change /

biogeochemistry schlesinger william h

In addition to studies of soil carbon, Schlesinger has provided global budgets summarizing the sources of atmospheric ammonia, the fate of human-derived nitrogen on land, and the global boron cycle. This expansive text pulls together the numerous fields of study encompassed by biogeochemistry to analyze the increasing demands of the growing human population on limited resources and the resulting changes in the planet's chemical makeup. Schlesinger is President Emeritus 2007-2014 of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies. Easily read eBooks on smart phones, computers, or any eBook readers, including Kindle. Annually we spread about 20 million tons of road salt in the U. Human activities, from the rapid consumption of resources to the destruction of the rainforests and the expansion of smog-covered cities, are all leading to rapid changes in the basic chemistry of the Earth.
