Chemical Oceanography, Second Edition, Volume 6, provides an overview of the state of knowledge in chemical oceanography. The present volume contains five chapters that focus on marine sediments. It begins with a discussion of the process of chemical diagenesis in sediments. Subsequent chapters deal with the factors that regulate the input and diagenesis of organic matter in sediments; interstitial waters of marine sediments; the mineralogy and geochemistry of near-shore sediments; and the geochemistry of deep-sea sediments.
