Elements: Redox Engine of Earth

July 06, 2020

This issue of Elements reviews how redox chemistry is used to derive valuable information about the present and the past of our planet. A knowledge of redox states is essential to understanding the compositional makeup of our planet and the fundamental processes that occur from the core to the atmosphere, from magmatic systems to aquatic systems. And the social and economic impact of redox geochemistry is enormous because of the control it plays on metal mobility and availability, and because of its widespread use for environmental hazard assessment.
