Marra This was an easy to understand description of the discovery of radioactivity in general and the utility of carbon 14 in particular In the digital ARC I received from NetGalley there was an error in the definition of isotope which prevents me from giving this a higher recommendation Contrary to the text in Hot Carbon all isotopes of an element must have the same number of protons though they do have different numbers of n

Marra ¼ 9 download summary Hot Carbon Ications ranging from archeology to oceanography to climatologyIn Hot Carbon John F Marra tells the untold story of this scientific revolution He weaves together the workings of the many disciplines that employ carbon 14 with gripping tales of the individuals who pioneered its possibilities He describes the concrete applications of carbon 14 to the study of all the stuff of life on earth from climate science's understanding of change over. This is a book for those with a background in math and chemistry maybe general sciences would work as well As a humanities major myself I had some serious eye glazing during the parts of the chemistry and math I enjoy popular science books or at least ones where the specifics are toned down I had hoped for a general history of Carbon 14 but it was detailed than I expected Sure details are good but not when you don t know higher math I should note that in the portions I read first few chapters the math wasn t extensive The drawings and figures in the book helped immensely Still I put aside the book as it was too much of a slog for myself and realizing it s holding up other books I might enjoy The list is too long I am not rating the book as it s a partial read for myselfI can see other people in the field who may enjoy it with the right background or mindset Thanks to Columbia University Press and NetGalley for an uncorrected electronic advance review copy of this book

Who would enjoy this bookThis volume would appeal most to those with a scientific focus Students of the Environmental Sciences would be the best candidates to enjoy the offering in Hot Carbon I studied a different scientific profession and yet I still found this first outing by Marra to be entertaining and enlightening although replete with factual errors If you have an interest in learning new things this book will be an exciting read Almost anyone over 16 years old will find this a useful addition to their bookshelf About the AuthorJohn F Marra is a veteran of the US Navy and after a non traditional route became involved in oceanographic based research He has been studying the oceans and the effects of carbon 14 for over 30 years Even though he was a Chicago boy he had a strong desire to sail the seas eventually becoming a Naval Officer The sea wasn t his only calling however and being the possessor of a sharp mind he developed a keen interest in nature and the natural world in general Marra eventually resigned his commission to study in a graduate program as a research assistant His CV is resplendent with many long years of oceanographic research He moved to a academic track and has enjoyed success in his field He is currently a Professor and Director of AREAC Earth and Environmental Sciences at Brooklyn College Find out about John Marra here What is the story aboutThe bulk of the book revolves around Carbon 14 and its universal ubiuity Marra explains in lucid and concise terms the importance of the isotope and its uniue importance to life on earth as it corresponds to the process of photosynthesis and its interaction with microscopic phytoplankton The book is beautifully illustrated with a plethora of images maps charts and tables From the inception I found the book particularly delightful and entertaining two responses I don t usually get from what I thought was a hardcore science thesis In the first few pages you are left in no doubt of Marra s dedication to his work as he describes the privations on one of his many research trips He effectively depicts the myriad of dangers and the deadly nature of the job For a brief moment I believed that I was reading an adventure book rather than what could have been a stultifying stuffy re telling of some mediocre scientific research I was hooked on the book and couldn t wait to finish I was particularly struck by the understated delivery of the prose His descriptions explanations and familiarity with the subject really sold the story and highlighted his abilities as a professor It was an easier read than expected and that added to its allure I was disappointed when the book ended it left me wanting I understand that this is Marra s first book and I hope it won t be his last I will certainly be pre ordering his next publication So please John don t keep us waiting In ConclusionThere are areas where those who didn t pay attention in organic chemistry may get a little lost in the translation of detailed processes but it s not a deal breaker in any way Overall I found this volume to be a pleasure to read easily accessible and well written You don t have to be a scientist to enjoy this book Put simply you don t want to be the one person in class not to have read this don t be that guy Acknowledgements I wish to extend my kindest regards to The Author The Publisher and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to review this wonderful book
