SEA WATER. 6l> crystallisation can generally be driven off at a moderate heat; in
some substances, such as calcic chloride, the heat required is greater. When
quick lime is moistened with water, it swells up, cracks, and falls to powder, and
great heat is evolved. The quick lime takes into chemical combination a definite
quantity of water, and this lime, so treated, is called slacked lime, and the water it
has taken up is called water of hydration, and slacked lime is called chemically,
calcic ...

The chemical composition of seawater is quite different from that of freshwater, a
difference that affects the transport of some dissolved and particulate
components. In addition, humans often perturb the natural chemistry of coastal
areas, either through contamination of the freshwater runoff, or due to activities
located close to estuaries and shallow seas. We begin this chapter by examining
the chemistry of seawater close to continental areas, in the transition zone
between terrestrial ...

North Sea gas contains about 90% methane and has a typical calorific value of
52 GJ per tonne. The transport of fuels determines the ease of their use. Gas is
easily transported by pipe-line. Some intercontinental trade is conducted by
cryogenic ships called liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers which are used to
supply Europe and are of particular importance for exports from Australia to
Japan. Oil distribution is carried out principally by ships and road tankers. Coal is
more difficult to ...
