By E. K. Duursma (auth.), Prof. Luiz Drude de Lacerda, Prof. Ricardo Erthal Santelli, Prof. Egbert K. Duursma, Prof. Jorge João Abrão (eds.)

Three symposia on environmental geochemistry in tropical nations, held in Niter6i, Brazil (1993), in Cartagena, Colombia (1996) and in Nova Friburgo, Brazil (1999), made it very transparent that tropical geochemistry is of worldwide average and quickly expanding in multi disciplinarily and impression on very important geochemical paradigms. It has also powerful hyperlinks with the economic system of tropical nations, reminiscent of mining and industrialisa­ tion and is in complete improvement for treating environmental difficulties brought on by human actions of city or business starting place. We needs to praise Prof. Jorge Abriio and his colleagues in Brazil and Dr. Gloria Prieto and her colleagues in Colombia for those ini­ tiatives. The participation of respectively a hundred and eighty and one hundred fifty scientists, coming from 15 diversified international locations for the 1st and moment symposia, has proven that an enormous curiosity exists for tropical environmental geochemistry. It additionally demonstrates the need to comprehend tropical environmental difficulties. The enterprise of a big foreign symposium isn't attainable with out the help of nation and federal experts, for which these of Brazil and Colombia must be complimented. The third Symposium on Environmental Geochemistry in Tropical nations was once the final of the sequence and used to be attended by way of 22 nations and one hundred seventy members and handled a couple of similar environmental and fiscal problems.

1, and the humidity retention curve shown in Fig. 1, where soil tension is plotted against volumetric humidity, calculated from apparent density and gravimetric water content. WFPS values were calculated using the porosity of the Al horizon. The soils were generally too dry to obtain tensiometer readings. Some measurements were possible in the hot wet season, principally in January and February, and measurements at the 30 cm depth, where there was a layer of low permeability, were generally obtained.
