An Earth Scientist’s Periodic Table of the Elements and Their Ions (Revised) is designed to contextualize trends in geochemistry, mineralogy, aqueous chemistry, and other natural sciences. This periodic table of the elements, which acknowledges that most natural matter occurs in charged form as ions rather than in elemental form, is more useful to earth scientists than the conventional one used by chemists. In this completely rearranged table, many elements appear multiple times, because many elements assume a different charge under different natural conditions. The practical result is that many trends in mineralogy, seawater chemistry, soil chemistry, the chemistry of earth's crust and mantle, the chemistry of sediments, and nutrient chemistry become apparent in ways that are not recognizable on conventional, elementally constructed, periodic tables.
