Advances in Trace Elements in the Environment


About the Series

The nature of trace elements in the environment depends largely on their interactions in the soil, water and air. Understanding the fate and transport of trace elements in the environment is essential for humans and animals, plants, water bodies, and soils. This series provides timely information on the biological, chemical, and physical processes governing the interactions of trace elements in the environment. Such knowledge is needed for minimizing the negative impact of trace elements on soil and water quality, plants, and human health. Books from this series are of value to industrial and mining engineers, government regulators, scientists, and consultants in the environmental arena.

Permeable Reactive Barrier: Sustainable Groundwater Remediation

Permeable Reactive Barrier: Sustainable Groundwater Remediation

1st Edition

Ravi Naidu, Volker Birke
December 20, 2019

Remediation of groundwater is complex and often challenging. But the cost of pump and treat technology, coupled with the dismal results achieved, has paved the way for newer, better technologies to be developed. Among these techniques is permeable reactive barrier (PRB) technology, which allows...

Nickel in Soils and Plants

Nickel in Soils and Plants

1st Edition

Christos Tsadilas, Jörg Rinklebe, Magdi Selim
September 07, 2018

Soils with high Ni contents occur in several parts of the world, especially in areas with ultramafic rocks which cause serious environmental impacts. This book aims to extend the knowledge on the risks and problems caused by elevated Ni contents and to cover the existing gaps on issues related to...

Phosphate in Soils: Interaction with Micronutrients, Radionuclides and Heavy Metals

Phosphate in Soils: Interaction with Micronutrients, Radionuclides and Heavy Metals

1st Edition

H. Magdi Selim
July 26, 2017

Edited by One of the Best Specialists in Soil Science Recent studies reveal that Phosphorus (P) in the form of phosphate, a macronutrient essential for plant growth, and crop yields can influence the bioavailability, retention, and mobility of trace elements, metal(loid)s, and radio nuclides in...

Trace Elements in Waterlogged Soils and Sediments

Trace Elements in Waterlogged Soils and Sediments

1st Edition

Jörg Rinklebe, Anna Sophia Knox, Michael Paller
July 18, 2016

Many wetlands around the world act as sinks for pollutants, in particular for trace elements. In comparison to terrestrial environments, wetlands are still far less studied. A collaborative effort among world experts, this book brings the current knowledge concerning trace elements in temporary...

Transport & Fate of Chemicals in Soils: Principles & Applications

Transport & Fate of Chemicals in Soils: Principles & Applications

1st Edition

H. Magdi Selim
September 17, 2014

During the last four decades, tremendous advances have been made towards the understanding of transport characteristics of contaminants in soils, solutes, and tracers in geological media. Transport & Fate of Chemicals in Soils: Principles & Applications offers a comprehensive treatment of...

Competitive Sorption and Transport of Heavy Metals in Soils and Geological Media

Competitive Sorption and Transport of Heavy Metals in Soils and Geological Media

1st Edition

H. Magdi Selim
August 29, 2012

Most reported incidents of soil contamination include an array of heavy metals species rather than a single ion. The various interactions in these multicomponent or multiple-ion systems significantly impact the fate and transport of heavy metals, and competition for sorption sites on soil matrix...

Dynamics and Bioavailability of Heavy Metals in the Rootzone

Dynamics and Bioavailability of Heavy Metals in the Rootzone

1st Edition

H. Magdi Selim
March 15, 2011

Concerns regarding heavy metal contamination in terrestrial ecosystems have prompted increasing efforts on limiting their bioavailability in the root zone. The complexity of the hydrologic system gives rise to the need for understanding the fate and transport of trace elements in the...
