Handbook of geochemistry by K.H. Wedepohl.: Located in the Branner Library Locked stacks: QE515.W42.

Summary: Each chapter covers one element of the periodic table (ordered by atomic number), and is subdivided as follows: A - Crystal chemistry; B - Isotopes in nature; C - Abundance in cosmos, meteorites, and tektites; D - Abundance in rock-forming minerals, phase equilibria; E - Abundance in common igneous rocks; F - Behavior in magmatic processes; G - Behavior during weathering and alteration of rocks; H - Solubilities of compounds which control concentration of the element in natural waters; adsorption; valences in nature; I - abundance in natural waters and in the atmosphere; K - Abundance in common sediments and sedimentary rocks; L - Biogeochemistry; M - Abundance in common metamorphic rocks; N - Behavior in metamorphic reactions; O - Relations to other elements, economic importance, etc.
