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...

Basics of Ecotoxicology

1st Edition

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....

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

1st Edition

Amy J. Forsgren
July 26, 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...

Linking Aquatic Exposure and Effects: Risk Assessment of Pesticides

1st Edition

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...

Environmental Fate and Transport Analysis with Compartment Modeling

1st Edition

Keith W. Little
March 29, 2017

Environmental Fate and Transport Analysis with Compartment Modeling explains how to use the powerful, highly flexible, and intuitive compartment approach to estimate the distribution of chemical contaminants in environmental media in time and space. Add this Easy-to-Use Approach to Your...

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

1st Edition

H. Magdi Selim
March 29, 2017

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...

Contaminated Sediments in Freshwater Systems

1st Edition

Frank R. Spellman
September 13, 2016

Assessment of freshwater sediments can determine whether chemical concentrations are sufficient to cause adverse effects on aquatic organisms or organisms higher in the food chain, including humans. This book presents methods for assessing sediments and includes an integration of physical, chemical...

Soil Phosphorus

1st Edition

Rattan Lal, B.A. Stewart
August 26, 2016

Phosphorus is an essential plant nutrient, but global population growth has dramatically reduced the availability of phosphorus fertilizer resources. Despite this scarcity, there remain numerous problems associated with the excessive and inappropriate use of phosphorus leading to non-point source...

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...

Fluoride in Drinking Water: Status, Issues, and Solutions

1st Edition

A.K. Gupta, S. Ayoob
April 20, 2016

Explore the Health Effects of Fluoride Pollution Fluoride in Drinking Water: Status, Issues, and Solutions establishes the negative impacts of naturally occurring fluoride on human health and considers the depth and scope of fluoride pollution on an international scale. The book discusses current...

Membrane Bioreactor Processes: Principles and Applications

1st Edition

Seong-Hoon Yoon
June 23, 2015

Grasp the Essential Principles of Membrane Bioreactor Processes Evolved from the conventional activated sludge (CAS) process, membrane bioreactor (MBR) processes have become the next-generation solution for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment and recycle. Membrane Bioreactor Processes:...

Product Stewardship: Life Cycle Analysis and the Environment

1st Edition

Kathleen Sellers
May 13, 2015

Consider the Consequences of Bringing a Chemical to Market Product Stewardship: Life Cycle Analysis and the Environment explores the regulatory and scientific aspects of the life-cycle consequences of bringing a chemical to market. Using case studies to bring critical points to life, this...
