New e-Resources - Major Reference Works on Chemistry, Geochemistry and Geomorphology

Some more new e-reference works, recently acquired as perpetual-access purchases:

Comprehensive Inorganic Chemistry II 

Reviews and examines topics of relevance to today’s inorganic chemists - biological inorganic chemistry; solid state chemistry; materials chemistry, and nanoscience

Chapters concentrate on applications of the elements and their compounds, and the title is designed to provide a valuable, long-standing scientific resource for both advanced students and researchers.

Treatise on Geochemistry 2nd edition  
Extensively updated new 16-volume edition of the widely acclaimed Treatise on Geochemistry with five new volumes on the history of the atmosphere; geochemistry of mineral deposits; archaeology and anthropology; organic geochemistry and analytical geochemistry. Also includes two separate volumes dealing with meteorites and planets, respectively. 

Treatise on Geomorphology 

14-volume reference work which provides a useful synthesis of the state of the discipline. It provides information on the historical development of geomorphology; the context for ongoing research; discussion of research strategies, equipment, and field methods; laboratory experiments and numerical simulations which reflect the multiple approaches to understanding Earth's surfaces; and summarises outstanding research questions.
