Chemical Geology: An Annotated Bibliography. CEGS Programs Publication Number 11.
Billings, Gale K.
The annotated bibliography is intended to aid geologists whose primary background is not in geochemistry. The references thus range from chemistry texts to papers on complex geochemical applications. The emphasis has been on those books and papers concerned with the application of chemical concepts to geology. Citations are arranged topically to provide a quick guide to the literature on the topics. Within each section the citations are arranged alphabetically. Where a paper selected for inclusion fits well into two or more sections, an arbitrary assignment has been made to one in order to avoid unnecessary duplication. An estimate of the mathematics and chemical background necessary for comprehension of each citation is noted. Topic sections include: (1) crystal chemistry; (2) physical chemistry; (3) kinetics; (4) applications of chemical concepts to high-temperature geologic systems; (5) applications of chemical concepts of low temperature geologic systems; (6) application of chemical concepts to natural organic systems; and (7) application of chemical concepts to isotope geology.
