  • The Salt Marshes of Cornwall (the environment of the Camel, Fal, Gannel and Hayle)

    Cornwall is a land defined by it's coastline and the mining industry that supported it's people for so long. As such, the estuaries of Cornwall have become highly contaminated, resulting in an ecology specialised to metal enriched environments. In this edition, we look at the environment of the Camel, Fal, Gannel and Hayle estuaries, focussing on ...

  • Natural Attenuation of Trace Element Availability in Soils

    Understanding attenuation processes can be applied not only to predicting the behavior of contaminants in soil and formulating remediation strategies, but also for mitigating and enhancing the availability of micronutrients in soil for agricultural applications. Natural Attenuation of Trace Element Availability in Soils brings together pioneering ...

  • Trace Elements in the Environment: Biogeochemistry, Biotechnology, and Bioremediation

    New analytical techniques have enhanced current understanding of the behavior of trace and ultratrace elements in the biogeochemical cycling, chemical speciation, bioavailability, bioaccumulation, and as applied to the phytoremediation of contaminated soils. Addressing worldwide regulatory, scientific, and environmental issues, Trace Elements in ...

  • Modern Instrumental Methods of Elemental Analysis of Petroleum Products and Lubricants

    Informs analysts and marketers of state-of-the-art methodology for the elemental analysis of petroleum products and lubricants. The first two papers are comprehensive reviews describing the occurrence and significance of trace metals in petroleum-related ...

  • New Analytical Techniques for Trace Constituents of Metallic and Metal-Bearing Ores

    This publication contains methodology and instrumentation for determination of trace constituents of metals, alloys and ores. 10 papers cover modification of instruments, special preparation of samples, optimization of matrix effects, automation, new excitation sources, and computer-controlled background ...

  • Symposium on Spectrochemical Analysis for Trace Elements

    There are six papers in this volume including: Emission Spectrometric Determination of Oxygen in Metals; and four ...

  • Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements in Arid Environments

    Global warming has worsened the water resource crisis in many arid zones worldwide, from Africa to Asia, affecting millions of people and putting them at risk of hunger. Effective management of arid zone resources, including understanding the risks of toxic trace and heavy elements to humans, coupled with the need to produce more food to feed the ...

  • Environmental Interactions of Clays

    Environmental Interactions of Clays is the companion volume of Bruce Velde's book on Origin and Mineralogy of Clays. In dealing with the role of clays in specific environmental issues, it is unique in its subject matter. Individual chapters are written by recognized international experts in their field. Subjects covered are radioactive waste ...

  • Analysis of Seawater

    It is only in the past few years that methods of adequate sensitivity have become available for true ultra-trace metal determinations in water. In the case of organics in seawater it has now become possible to resolve the complex mixtures of organics in seawater and achieve the required very low detection limits. Fortunately, the interest in ...

  • Chemical Elements in Plants and Soil: Parameters Controlling Essentiality

    Earlier works on plant essential elements have revealed a series of complicated, counter-intuitive relationships among various chemical elements in different plant species, due to both unlike usage of certain elements in plants and to different carriers effecting resorption and transport.In an attempt to provide a more coherent theory behind plant ...

  • Electronic Noses and Sensors for the Detection of Explosives

    This book examines both the potential application of electronic nose technology, and the current state of development of chemical sensors for the detection of vapours from explosives, such as those used in landmines. The two fields have developed, somewhat in parallel, over the past decade and so one of the purposes of this workshop, on which the ...

  • Trace Metals in the Wester Schelde Estuary: A Case-Study of a Polluted, Partially Anoxic Estuary

    Oceans and lakes are characterized by large residence times and can thus be considered as being in an equilibrium or quasi-equilibrium state. In contrast, estuaries, which constitute the interface between the fresh water and marine ecosystems, are biogeochemically and physically very dynamic. Strong gradients in physical and chemical ...

  • Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology 166

    Predicting the Fate and Effects of Tributyltin in Marine Systems.- Fate and Effects of Diazinon.- Trace Element Contamination in Antarctic Ecosystems.- Trace Metals in Antarctica Related to Climate Change and Increasing Human ...

  • Metals in Society and in the Environment

    In 2002, the Swedish Metal Information Task Force (MITF) engaged the Environmental Research Group (MFG) to update previous monographs on copper, zinc and major alloying metals (such as chromium, nickel and molybdenum) in society and in the environment. This book presents new results on metal fluxes from society to the environment, on metal ...

  • 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 ...

  • Heavy Metals: A Problem Solved?

    Most publications on heavy metals and the environment have focused on environmental pathways and risks. The present book establishes a link between the environmental risks of heavy metals and the societal causes of the risks. Economic models, substance flow models and environmental fate and risk assessment models have been integrated into a ...
