Artificial Neural Networks in Biological and Environmental Analysis

Grady Hanrahan
September 14, 2017

Originating from models of biological neural systems, artificial neural networks (ANN) are the cornerstones of artificial intelligence research. Catalyzed by the upsurge in computational power and availability, and made widely accessible with the co-evolution of software, algorithms, and...

Wastewater Treatment: Occurrence and Fate of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)

Amy J. Forsgren
September 01, 2017

This book describes the sources of water contamination by PAHs and their transportation and fate in natural aquatic systems. It then discusses, from the analytical chemist’s view, how to determine the presence of PAHs in water and wastewater, and the changes in PAH concentration during treatment...

Environmental Chemicals Desk Reference

John H. Montgomery, Thomas Roy Crompton
August 29, 2017

Environmental Chemicals Desk Reference is a concise version of the widely read Agrochemicals Desk Reference and Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference. This up-to-date volume was inspired by the need for a combination of the material in both references, together with the large number of research...

Handbook of Environmental Analysis: Chemical Pollutants in Air, Water, Soil, and Solid Wastes, Third Edition

Pradyot Patnaik
August 22, 2017

The Handbook will cover all aspects of environmental analysis and will examine the emergence of many new classes of pollutants in recent years. It will provide information on an array of topics from instrumentation, analytical techniques, and sample preparations to statistical calculations,...

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

H. Magdi Selim
August 01, 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...

Multiresidue Methods for the Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Food

Horacio Heinzen, Leo M.L. Nollet, Amadeo R. Fernandez-Alba
July 28, 2017

Pesticide residues can persist for some time and can be harmful to human health, wildlife and the global environment. Determination of such residues helps to keep the production sustainability and to design policies to protect endangered ecosystems. This book presents the key features of pesticide...

Real-Time Environmental Monitoring: Sensors and Systems

Miguel F. Acevedo
July 26, 2017

The natural environment is complex and changes continuously at varying paces. Many, like the weather, we notice from day to day. However, patterns and rhythms examined over time give us the bigger picture. These weather statistics become climate and help us build an understanding of the patterns of...

Basics of Ecotoxicology

Donald W. Sparling
July 26, 2017

The material presented in this textbook will not require the need for prior knowledge of chemistry, biology, or statistics to be understood, rather, it will provide sufficient related background information leading to a competency to clearly understand ecotoxicology concepts and topics....

Linking Aquatic Exposure and Effects: Risk Assessment of Pesticides

Theo C. Brock
June 30, 2017

Time-variable exposure profiles of pesticides are more often the rule than exception in the surface waters of agricultural landscapes. There is, therefore, a need to adequately address the uncertainties arising from time-variable exposure profiles in the aquatic risk assessment procedure for...

Practical Aspects of Trapped Ion Mass Spectrometry, Volume IV: Theory and Instrumentation

Raymond E. March, John F.J. Todd
June 14, 2017

Reflecting the substantial increase in popularity of quadrupole ion traps and Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FT-ICR) mass spectrometers, Practical Aspects of Trapped Ion Mass Spectrometry, Volume IV: Theory and Instrumentation explores the historical origins of the latest advances in...

Water Distribution System Monitoring: A Practical Approach for Evaluating Drinking Water Quality

Abigail F. Cantor
June 14, 2017

A typical water distribution system is complex and chaotic with varying piping configurations, water flows, chemical reactions, and microbiological activity. It is therefore no surprise that monitoring water quality can be a daunting task, not to mention dealing with the devastating and costly...

Analytical Measurements in Aquatic Environments

Jacek Namiesnik, Piotr Szefer
June 07, 2017

Even a cursory perusal of any analytical journal will demonstrate the increasing important of trace and ultra-trace analysis. And as instrumentation continues to develop, the definition of the term "trace element" will undoubtedly continue to change. Covering the composition and underlying...
