The winner will be selected by the editors-in-chief and board members of Society of Environmental Geochemistry and Health at the end of each year, and will received a $300 USD cash prize.
We publish original studies relating to the geochemistry of natural waters and their interactions with rocks and minerals under near Earth-surface conditions.
In this study, part of the “Frontiers and Advances in Environmental Soil Chemistry” collection in honouring the work of Prof.
Donald Sparks, James Kubicki and colleagues, perform DFT calculations on a model of a ferrihydrite nanoparticle interacting with chromate in water.
Two configurations each of monodentate and bidentate adsorbed chromate as well as an outer-sphere and a dissolved bichromate were simulated.
In addition to the 3-D periodic planewave DFT models, molecular clusters were extracted from the energy-minimized structures.
Bedrock geochemistry controls the composition of soil and hence that of water and vegetation.
Environmental issues, such as pollution, arising from the extraction and use of mineral resources, are discussed.
The predecessor of the State Key Laboratory of Ore Deposit Geochemistry (SKLODG) is the Key Laboratory of Ore Deposit Geochemistry Chinese Academy of Sciences (KLODGCAS) which was established in 1989 on the basis of the Division for Studying Ore Deposits in IGCAS.
The SKLODG was approved to be constructed in 2006 and verified by the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2009.
