Description

This newly updated and expanded edition of Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment covers the fundamental principles of mass transport, chemical partitioning, and
chemical/biological transformations in surface waters, in soil and groundwater, and in air. Each
of these three major environmental media are introduced by descriptive overviews, followed by
presentation of the controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. The text
emphasizes intuitively based mathematical models for chemical transport and transformations in
the environment, and serves both as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses in
environmental science and engineering, and as a standard reference for environmental practitioners.

Readership

Senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students in environmental science or environmental engineering programs; students in other disciplines, such as geotechnical engineering, who seek basic environmental literacy; practitioners in environmental consulting and management firms and government agencies.

Quotes and reviews

"...Covers almost all of the necessary topics for a straight environmental chemistry course. The strength of this book is the excellent quantitative approach that it presents to solving problems. Each section has worked example problems throughout the text, and concludes with 25 or more problems. An excellent solution manual is available."
- ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

"...a succinct, yet substantive, review of chemical fate and transport processes in the environment...I recommend this book as an excellent overview of chemicals in the environment for student training and general support for the practicing environmental scientist."
- Garth W. Redfield, for JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN WATER RESOURCES ASSOCIATION
