This quantity encompasses a collection of papers awarded to the Fourth Internation~l Symposium on Environmental Biogeochemistry (ISEB), and a convention on Biogeochemistry in terms of Mining and Environmental toxins (Leaching Conference), held in Canberra, Aust­ ralia on August 26-31 and September 3-4, 1979, respectively. The ISEB have been validated to supply "a discussion board for uninhibited trade of knowledge and concepts one of the organic, chemical, atmospheric and geolorical scientists operating within the universal region of biogeochemistry, encompassing soil and different earth sciences in addition to the hydrosphere and atmosphere", through linking the fourth ISEB with the Leachin~ convention the scope of discussions was once prolonged to surround the appliance of biogeochemical methods to the mining undefined. This wide-ranging philosophy is mirrored within the breadth and variety of the themes lined during this booklet. the broadcast papers are elevated types of these provided on the conferences. they've got all been scrutinized by means of not less than one referee as well as the editors. approximately 20% of the contributions to the conferences are usually not integrated, both simply because authors didn't desire to put up or as the papers weren't accredited through the editors.
