The book provides readers with a good insight into the fundamental processes that regulate the marine carbon cycle. The content of the volume is offering a required background in chemical oceanography; in addition to that, it provides readers with the clear description of the way chemical elements contained in  sea water and sediments are actually used as tracers of various processes occurring in the oceans - and these processes are biological, geological, physical and chemical.

The chapters of the book are covering the basics of thermodynamics, carbonate chemistry, they provide the explanation of the influence of life on the chemistry of the ocean and how exactly it evolved in the past. There are some topics in the book that contain essential information for understanding the idea of the carbon cycle, including such important aspects as exchange of gas within the air-sea system, organic geo-chemistry, reaction kinetics, diffusion, and so many of other relevant matters. The title will be really ideal to serve as a textbook for all students in geo-chemistry, oceanography, marine science, environmental science and any other fields. It will also be useful for the professionals and scientists in the field and actually to any persons involved in the relevant researches.
