A few ninety years in the past, the 1st info at the prevalence of dissolved natural subject in sea water used to be released. for fifty years after that reve lation, little growth used to be made in settling on those dissolved "yellow substances." within the Nineteen Fifties and Sixties, a couple of chemical oceanographers pointed out a few particular dissolved natural compounds, yet few of those pioneers totally liked their value when it comes to organic inter activities, steel chelation, or interactions with sedimentary fabric. while Mohammed Rashid begun his paintings on marine humic compounds within the mid-1960s, he used to be certainly one of basically 5 scientists who had particularly designed their stories towards figuring out the character of those complicated fabrics. Over the subsequent decade, Dr. Rashid directed his study towards characterization of humic and fulvic compounds within the marine environ ment, the impression of humic elements at the progress of marine phy toplankton, the position of natural subject in complexing metals in sea water and marine sediments, the interplay among humic elements and clay minerals in marine environments, and the impact of natural topic at the geotechnical homes of marine sediments. as though the various papers made from those clinical investigations weren't adequate, Dr.
