"Contains an enormous wealth of information, presenting marine chemistry in a way that even non-chemists will be able to grasp. Pilson has taken great care to explain the basics as well as the state-of-the-art. It is a book that any marine scientist (from undergraduate through to professor) will benefit from having close to hand."
David Thomas, School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University; UK and Finnish Environment Institute, Marine Research Centre, Helsinki; Finland and Arctic Research Centre, Aarhus University, Denmark
"This book is unique and clearly presented: not just a textbook for courses on ocean chemistry, but definitely a great reference book for coastal ecosystems and freshwater bodies as well."
Yushun Chen, Director of Environmental Quality and Ecosystems Health Research Laboratory, Aquaculture and Fisheries Center, University of Arkansas
"This new edition of Pilson's classic textbook has been brought up to date with regard to the latest analytical techniques and scientific insights of modern marine chemistry. With its broad scope and light narrative style it will likely remain the foundation of many excellent graduate and advanced undergraduate courses for years to come."
Johan Schijf, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science/Chesapeake Biological Laboratory
"... an excellent overview of the field of marine chemistry ... The extensive appendixes provide useful basic information on diverse subjects. Highly recommended."
M. W. Han, Choice
"... offers a comprehensive and accessible foundation for studying the chemistry of the sea, and it likely will become a standard textbook for introductory chemical oceanography courses, as well as a valuable resource for anyone interested in the topic. Pilson has succeeded in his hope to provide an "overview of the whole field of marine chemistry" that "will be helpful to all who care to know something of the marine world"."
