Geochemistry - Arthur H. Brownlow
For one/two-semester, junior/graduate-level courses in geochemistry. This text covers the entire field of geochemistry -- assuming very little chemical and mathematical background on the part of students. It uses a blend of theory, laboratory, and field studies to show how geochemical principles can be used to solve specific geologic problems, and features many detailed examples of the application of geochemical principles to the study of natural waters, soil, and sedimentary, igneous, and

Biophysics: An Introduction - Roland Glaser
Biophysics is the science of physical principles underlying the "phenomenon of life" on all levels of organization. This book begins by explaining molecular and ionic interactions, movements, excitation and energy transfer, and the self-organization of supramolecular structures. Then the biological organism is introduced as a non-equilibrium system. Finally, system analyses are discussed as well as environmental biophysics, ecological interactions, growth, differentiation, and evolution. A

Photoacoustic Infrared Spectroscopy - Kirk H. Michaelian
Photoacoustic infrared spectroscopy differs from traditional infrared spectroscopy in one important way: in its most common implementation, a microphone is used to detect acoustic waves that result from absorption of infrared radiation by a sample. In other words, no optical detector is required to quantify the amount of incident radiation taken up by the sample. This gas-microphone method is one of a series of photoacoustic and photothermal techniques now being used for characterization and
