Introduction to Soil Chemistry
Analysis and Instrumentation
by Alfred R. Conklin

Introduction to Soil Chemistry investigates the most important soil characteristics that impact analysis and the procedures, chemicals, and equipment used to determine the composition and quantity of soil constituents.

Introduction to Soil Chemistry also discusses factors that interfere with accurate soil analysis.

Chapters examine such topics as:

  • Large features-horizons, peds, soil color, and soil naming
  • Microscopic to atomic orbital description of soil chemical characteristics
  • Soil components in combination
  • The biological and organic components in soil
  • The soil solution and soil air
  • Electrical measurements, titration, and extraction
  • Spectroscopy and chromatography
  • Speciation
Introduction to Soil Chemistry is enhanced by numerous examples within the text, which provide the reader with a practical understanding of various analytical procedures, along with the pitfalls and interferences that may be encountered.

Contents:

  1. Soil Basics I: Macroscale Features
  2. Soil Basics II: Microscopic to Atomic Orbital Description of Soil Chemical Characteristics
  3. Soil Basics III: The Biological and Organic Components in Soil
  4. Soil Basics IV: The Soil Air and Soil Solution
