  • Soil Heavy Metals

    Human activities have dramatically changed the composition and organisation of soils. Industrial and urban wastes, agricultural application and also mining activities resulted in an increased concentration of heavy metals in soils. How plants and soil microorganisms cope with this situation and the sophisticated techniques developed for survival ...

  • GEMS Environment Library No. 05: The Contamination of Food

    The UNEP/FAO/ WHO Food Contamination Monitoring Programme (GEMS/Food) has been collecting data on food contamination through a network of participating institutes since 1976. In 1988, data from the monitoring programme and other sources covering the years 1971—85 were compiled, analysed and published by GEMS as a joint UNEP/FAO/ WHO document ...

  • Environmental Separation of Heavy Metals: Engineering Processes

    This new book explains advanced and emerging technologies for removing heavy metals from wastestreams and contaminated sites. Separation processes of this type are critical for meeting stringent regulations of priority pollutants, especially arsenic, mercury, and lead, which the text treats in depth. After explaining the chemistry of heavy metals ...

  • Geotechnical Testing Journal

    The purpose of the Geotechnical Testing Journal is (1) to provide a high-quality publication that informs the profession of new developments in soil and rock testing and related fields; (2) to provide a forum for the exchange of information, particularly that which leads to the development of new test procedures; and (3) to stimulate active ...

  • Methods in Environmental Forensics

    While environmental catastrophes can be naturally occurring, often they are the result of criminal intent or malfeasance. Sorting out the details when the land itself is the only witness requires a special set of investigative skills. For accountability to be established, investigators must be able to answer these questions with a measure of ...

  • Geostatistics for Environmental and Geotechnical Applications

    STP 1283 gives you the opportunity to review several practical exercises conducted by authorities in this discipline. The 300-page volume opens with a four-part introduction to geostatistics: Geostatistics for Environmental and Geotechnical Applications: A Technology Transferred examines the practicality of geostatistical methods and concludes ...

  • Health Effects of Metals and Related Substances in Drinking Water

    Metals are inorganic substances that occur naturally in geological formations. Naturally occurring metals are dissolved in water when it comes into contact with rock or soil material. Some metals are essential for life and are naturally available in our food and water. Trace amounts of metals are common in water, and these are normally not harmful ...
