About the Authors
  • John Young Buchanan (1844–1925) was a Scottish chemist and oceanographer who worked extensively on the chemistry of marine environments. Originally published in 1917, this book gathers together a selection of Buchanan's papers on a broad variety of topics, some of them non-scientific. Numerous illustrative figures are also included and the contents listing contains extensive notes on each of the papers. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the writings of Buchanan, chemistry, oceanography and the history of science.
