Key Features

- Use of computer modeling for water and soil chemistry provides students with the models used by practicing environmental chemists.
- Examples and complex problems with worked solutions included throughout the text.
- Examples based on real data provide exposure to the real problems and data students will face in their careers.


Soil and Environmental Chemistry emphasizes the problem-solving skills students will need when they enter their chosen field.  Combining valuable soil chemistry concepts into the “big picture” by discussing how other soil and environmental factors affect the soil chemical concepts being discussed makes the text relevant to today’s soil science curriculums.

This revised reprint provides edits to formulas, numbers, and text.


Upper-level undergraduate students studying soil chemistry without an extensive background in calculus and only limited background in physical chemistry.  This includes soil science majors as well as environmental science majors.

William Bleam

William Bleam is Professor of Soil Science at the University of Wisconsin, USA. His research interests include physical chemistry of soil colloids and sorption processes, chemistry of humic substances, factors controlling biological availability of contaminants to micro-organisms, magnetic resonance and synchrotron studies of adsorption and precipitation. He has taught an intermediate soil chemistry course (Soil Science 321, Soil & Environmental Chemistry) since 2006. Students taking this course include undergraduate and graduate students.
