About this book

The twelve chapters of this volume aim to provide a complete manual for using noble gases in terrestrial geochemistry, covering applications which range from high temperature processes deep in the Earth’s interior to tracing climatic variations using noble gases trapped in ice cores, groundwaters and modern sediments. Other chapters cover noble gases in crustal (aqueous, CO2 and hydrocarbon) fluids and laboratory techniques for determining noble gas solubilities and diffusivities under geologically relevant conditions. Each chapter deals with the fundamentals of the analysis and interpretation of the data, detailing sampling and sampling strategies, techniques for analysis, sources of error and their estimation, including data treatment and data interpretation using recent case studies.

Reviews

From the reviews:

Selected by Choice magazine as an "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2013

“This edited work represents a valuable, unique contribution to the description, recovery, analysis, and application of the noble gases to earth science research. … The book is well illustrated and documented with extensive, up-to-date references. A valuable addition to the geologic literature and a must for researchers involved in the application of isotope chemistry to solving earth science problems. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners.” (M. E. McCallum, Choice, Vol. 51 (4), December, 2013)
