Contaminated Sediment Books

  • Sediments Contamination and Sustainable Remediation

    A comprehensive resource on contaminated sediments, this book opens with discussions of the contamination of sediments resulting from discharge of pollutants, excessive nutrients, and other hazardous substances from anthropogenic activities. It examines impacts observed as a result of these discharges, including the presence of hazardous materials ...

  • Contaminated Sediments: Sustainable Management and Remediation

    Twenty-three peer-reviewed papers provide the latest global information on environmentally sound solutions to the sustainable management and remediation of contaminated sediments.Papers address:Coverage of contaminated sediments by structural features or fixing agentsNeutralization by dredging, treating, and re-deposition of the sediments in ...

  • CONTAMINATED SEDIMENTS: Evaluation and Remediation Techniques

    Thirty-eight peer-reviewed papers focus on the latest advances in the fields of environmental science and underwater engineering related to sediments. Topics cover characterization, evaluation, mitigation, restoration and management of contaminated sediments in the fields of oceanography, limnology, sedimentology, geochemistry, marine ...

  • 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. It identifies both established and innovative physico-chemical and biological tests and methods used to characterize and evaluate ...

  • Contaminated Sediments

    When discussing the issue of contamination of the aquatic environment, water pollution is still the major aspect that has been regulated and extensively studied, but poor attention has been devoted to sediments. Sediments have been described as the sink or storage place and a source for contaminants entering river systems through various pathways. ...

  • Assessment and Remediation of Contaminated Sediments

    Contaminated sediments pose some of the most difficult site remediation issues. Contaminated sediments typically reside in spatially variable and dynamic systems subject to seasonal flow variations and episodic storm events. The volume of sediments that must be managed at particular sites often exceeds one million cubic meters, dwarfing many ...

  • Morphology of Crystals

    The molecular mechanisms underlying the fact that a crystal can take a variety of external forms is something we have come to understand only in the last few decades. This is due to recent developments in theoretical and experimental investigations of crystal growth mechanisms. Morphology of Crystals is divided into three separately ...

  • What Sustains Life?

    This book brings together three decades worth of collaborative research to address the question 'What sustains life?' In part a scientific response to Schroedinger's work 'What is Life?' Urry's text contains elements of memoir, history, and a solid, informative scientific core that will interest both the general reader, student, and professional ...
