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 ...

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
and open-ocean environments, before moving on to discuss open-ocean
environments. Fig. 6.1 Annual river sediment flux from large drainage basins to
the oceans.

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 ...

It has long been the custom among ship-builders to cover the outer surface of the
hulls of large vessels with sheets of copper, the durability and consequent
advantages of which were found to be greatly diminished by the action of the
saline matters contained in sea-water on the metal, producing oxidation,
corrosion, and decay. The plan proposed for tho prevention of these injurious
effects of the exposure of the copper sheathing of ships to the action of sea-water
during long voyages, ...
