professor; Ph.D., Rutgers State Univ., 1978










    Contents of soil physical chemistry include mineral/water interface, and discuss their surface complexation models, kinetic reaction and use in situ spectroscopic techniques to demonstrate reaction mechanisms and soil organic matter chemistry. Double layer theory, soil thermodynamics and soil chemistry processes kinetics will also include in this course.
