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 transformation in surface waters, in soil and groundwater, and in air. In this textbook, each of these three major environmental media is introduced by descriptive overviews, followed by presentation of the controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. Emphasis is placed on intuitively based mathematical models for chemical transport and transformations. Although developed for a one-semester graduate course, Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment, Second Edition, is also an essential reference for environmental practitioners in industry, consulting, and government agencies. KEY FEATURES · Provides an integrated treatment of major environmental media · Presents a quantitative treatment of fate and transport processes · Is based on a graduate-level course taught for 10 years at MIT, augmented with practical consulting experience · Features examples and illustrations throughout the text · Includes extensive exercises at the end of each chapter · Contains ample references to the primary literatureHemond, Harold F. is the author of 'Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment', published 1999 under ISBN 9780123402752 and ISBN 0123402751.
