Key Features

* Examines the integration of physical, chemical, and biological processes
* Emphasizes field methods and real-time data acquisition, made more accessible with case studies, problems, calculations, and questions
* Includes four color illustrations throughout the text
* Brings together the concepts of environmental monitoring and site characterization

Description

Environmental Monitoring and Characterization is an integrated, hands-on resource for monitoring all aspects of the environment. Sample collection methods and relevant physical, chemical and biological processes necessary to characterize the environment are brought together in twenty chapters which cover: sample collection methods, monitoring terrestrial, aquatic and air environments, and relevant chemical, physical and biological processes and contaminants.

This book will serve as an authoritative reference for advanced students and environmental professionals.

Readership

Environmental consultants, regulators, and industry environmental scientists. Also advanced undergraduate students majoring in Environmental Sciences, and first- and second-year graduate students.

Quotes and reviews

"The book advances the sate-of-the-art by not only documenting how to monitor the environment, but also referring the reader to other more detailed comprehensive books. This nicely illustrated book should be useful at the senior undergraduate level, as well as to students initiating graduate studies in environmental sciences."
-INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ENVIRONEMTNAL AND ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, MARCH 2005

"This would be a valuable addition to any library that had an audience concerned with the environment."
-Robert F. Skinder, Science Reference Librarian, University of South Carolina-Columbia Thomas Cooper Library for E-STREAMS, Jan 2005
