About this book
This textbook offers a comprehensive and authoritative introduction to the latest analytical methods, tools and techniques used in the marine environment, bringing together the two fields of chemical oceanography and analytical chemistry.Divided into 11 chapters, the book starts with an overview of the main parameters of the marine carbon system, and it covers different sampling strategies used by the marine scientific community, and the different chemical analyses to measure trace metals, radionuclides and organic matter in the marine environment. Particular attention is given to the identification and quantification of marine persistent organic pollutants, emerging organic contaminants and microplastics. Readers will also find accessible explanations and real life examples of the application of remote sensing and in-situ sensing technologies to monitor the marine environment. The textbook finishes with a chapter on data treatment that outlines the relevant statistical approaches, uncertainty estimation and quality assurance of marine chemical measurements.
This textbook provides both students and professionals alike with a transdisciplinary and comprehensive foundation for the chemical analysis of our oceans and seas.

About the editors
Julián Blasco is a Research Professor and the Director of the Institute for Marine Sciences of Andalusia from the Spanish Research Council (ICMAN-CSIC), and leader of the research group “Ecotoxicology, Ecophysiology and Biodiversity of Aquatic Systems”. He was President of the Iberoamerican Society of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, and a member of the SETAC Europe Council. Dr. Blasco has been involved in 60+ research projects and 22 research contracts at national and international levels, and has published 200+ scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals. He is associate editor of several journals (e.g. Science of the Total Environment and Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, among others). He has also contributed to several book chapters, and co-edited the book Sunscreens in Coastal Ecosystems: Occurrence, Behavior, Effect and Risk, published by Springer in 2020.
Antonio Tovar-Sánchez is a Senior Scientist leading the Marine Chemistry lab at the Institute for Marine Sciences of Andalusia from the Spanish Research Council (ICMAN-CSIC). In the past 20 years, his main research focused on the role of trace elements in the sea, mainly metals and inorganic nutrients, attending their sources, fluxes, distribution and biological impact, and their sensitivity to changing environmental conditions. His recent scientific efforts have focused on the impact of anthropogenic activities on the coastal ecosystem, as is the case of tourism, mainly in the effect of emerging pollutants. He is member of the Spanish State Research Agency (AEI) in the area of marine science (since 2018 to date) and he represents Spain in the international programme GEOTRACES as part of the scientific steering committee and in the marine working group of the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC). He has published 100+ peer-reviewed article, and co-edited the book Sunscreens in Coastal Ecosystems: Occurrence, Behavior, Effect and Risk, published by Springer in 2020.
