Konrad B. Krauskopf was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin and earned a B. He then earned a Ph. When the Great Depression made jobs in chemistry scarce, Professor Krauskopf decided to study geology, which had long fascinated him.
Through additional graduate work at Stanford University, he earned a second Ph. He remained at Stanford until his retirement in During his tenure, Professor Krauskopf also worked at various times with the U. Geological Survey, served with the U.
His research interests included field work on granites and metamorphic rocks and laboratory study on applications of chemistry to geologic problems, especially the formation of ore deposits. In recent years, Professor Krauskopf had spent time working with various government agencies on the problem of radioactive waste disposal.
Introduction to Geochemistry. Konrad Bates Krauskopf. The book is addressed to juniors and seniors, perhaps to an occasional sophomore-to students fresh from a year of chemistry and equipped with the geological background normally provided by courses in physical and historical geology and mineralogy.
The plan of the book is to review, at a moderately advanced level, those topics from elementary geology to which chemical ideas may be usefully applied. Most chapters end with a list of questions. At the end of each chapter is also a list of books and articles, including those to which reference is made in the chapter ana few others intended as an introduction to current geochemical literature.
Students should be cautioned that the book is more than its title implies, an introduction to an enormously complex subject. Material in the book should provide enough background to enable students to read contemporary geochemical literature with understanding and pleasure and to form judgments about the quality of geochemical work.

Introduction to Geochemistry
By Steve Rubenstein. Konrad Krauskopf , a Stanford University geology professor and pioneer in the field of geochemistry who led expeditions throughout the world, studied the composition of seawater and became an expert on radioactive waste disposal,. Known as "Konnie," Professor Krauskopf was a beloved and energetic member of the Stanford faculty in a career that began in He taught a freshman geology seminar this year and, until a few months ago, came to campus every day.
