dc.description.abstract The primary aim of this thesis is to establish a computer model of the chemical elements in seawater and to use this model to gain insight into the chemical processes controlling dissolution, precipitation, redox levels and coordinative interactions in surface seawater. In order to accomplish this task a relatively extensive database consisting of about 580 complexation equilibria arising from 32 inorganic and 10 organic components has been set up. Constants have been selected from critical compilations. Included in these equilibria are solubility products for the formation of potential solids, redox reactions and interactions with the atmospheric gases carbon dioxide and oxygen. en_ZA
