    Comprehensive Environmental Mass Spectrometry

    Mass spectrometry is the most sensitive, rapid and informative analytical tool available. In full colour throughout, this book describes the power of this technique in resolving environmental issues, demonstrating how real-world complex problems can be solved in a simple and elegant way. The book begins with the general principles of mass ...

  • Soil and Water Contamination

    Soil and Water Contamination, 2nd Edition is the first textbook that treats soil and water pollution issues from a geographical/spatial perspective at point, local, regional, and catchment scales. It links up very well to recent environmental policy and legislation in the field of soil and water pollution, e.g. European Water Framework Directive. ...

  • Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters

    Contaminated bottom sediments and their negative impacts on water quality are a major problem in surface waters throughout the United States as well as in many other parts of the world. Even after elimination of the primary contaminant sources, these bottom sediments will be a main source of contaminants for many years to come. In order to ...

  • Ground-Water Contamination: Field Methods

    Reviews and evaluates field methods used to study ground-water contamination. 30 peer-reviewed papers examine: • ground-water sampling and sampling in unsaturated soils• well-drilling (construction and monitoring)• geophysical exploration• quality assurance• soil permeability• and nonpoint source investigations. Some ...

  • Improving Water Quality Through Contaminant Source Trackdown Studies - An Environmental Approach

    Improving Water Quality Through Contaminant Source Trackdown Studiesdiscusses the trackdown approaches that help to avoid costly mistakes that miss key contaminant sources or inaccurately assess their relative contributions to problems. This book brings together information that is currently dispersed in the academic literature and within files of ...

  • Overexploitation and Contamination of Shared Groundwater Resources

    Forty percent of the world’s population depends upon increasingly scarce and shared water resources. This situation is critical at both international and national levels not only for socio-economic development, but also for the regional stability. The intensive use of groundwater for irrigation and water supply is adding pressures to scarce water ...

  • Organic Contaminants in Riverine and Groundwater Systems

    This book summarizes a selection of organic-geochemical investigations, which deal with the characterization and environmental behaviour of organic contaminations of German river and groundwater systems. The aim is to resume and present an overview of comprehensive current research activities, which have been published diversely in specialised ...

  • Environmental Monitoring and Biodiagnostics of Hazardous Contaminants

    The fourth International Symposium of the International Society for Environmental Biotechnology was held on the campus of Queen's University, Belfast, Northern Ireland, on June 20-25, 1998, with an attendance of several hundred people. This meeting included technical presentations of state-of-the-art research which were integrated with ...

  • Water and Energy

    Water and Energy – Threats and Opportunities creates an awareness of the important couplings between water and energy. It shows how energy is used in all the various water cycle operations and demonstrates how water is used – and misused – in all kinds of energy production and generation. Population increase, climate change and an increasing ...

  • Riverbank Filtration: Understanding Contaminant Biogeochemistry and Pathogen Removal

    Riverbank filtration is widely used in Europe and to some extent in the United States for the public water supply. It is a cost-effective and realisable treatment technology in which horizontal and vertical wells pump a mixture of ground water and induced surface water from a river. This book describes the biogeochemical issues involved in ...

  • Emerging Contaminant - N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) Fact Sheet

    This fact sheet provides a brief summary for N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), including physical and chemical properties, environmental and health impacts, existing federal and state guidelines, detection and treatment methods, and additional sources of information. NDMA is an emerging drinking water contaminant that is of interest to the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Drinking Water Microbiology

    This comprehensive volume provides a state-of-the-art review of the analysis and treatment of drinking water for microbial contamination, the direct cause of diseases and infant mortality primarily in the third world, but affecting industrialized countries as well. As a result of growing concern over waterborne epidemics, the 1980s were dedicated ...

  • Directory of Sources of Contaminants Entering Municipal Sewer Systems, 1st Edition

    The Canadian Water and Wastewater Association (CWWA), with the support of Environment Canada, has released a Directory of Sources of Contaminants Entering Municipal Sewer Systems. The Directory is aimed at helping to identify the potential industrial, commercial and institutional sources of contaminants entering municipal sewage treatment plants ...

  • Treatment of Micropollutants in Water and Wastewater

    Over the last few years there has been a growing concern over the increasing concentration of micropollutants originating from a great variety of sources including pharmaceutical, chemical engineering and personal care product industries in rivers, lakes, soil and groundwater. As most of the micropollutants are polar and persistent compounds, they ...

  • CONTAMINATED SEDIMENTS: Characterization, Evaluation, Mitigation/Restoration, and Management Strategy Performance

    This new publication reviews recent advances in contaminated sediments-management-related research and focuses on the engineering aspects of contaminant transport, erosion, stability, monitoring, and modeling.
