Handbook of Physical-Chemical Properties and Environmental Fate for Organic Chemicals

2nd Edition

Donald Mackay, Wan-Ying Shiu, Kuo-Ching Ma, Sum Chi Lee
March 14, 2006

CHOICE Award Winner Transport and transformation processes are key for determining how humans and other organisms are exposed to chemicals. These processes are largely controlled by the chemicals’ physical-chemical properties. This new edition of the Handbook of Physical-Chemical Properties and...

Trace Elements in the Environment: Biogeochemistry, Biotechnology, and Bioremediation

1st Edition

M.N.V. Prasad, Kenneth S. Sajwan, Ravi Naidu
October 14, 2005

New analytical techniques have enhanced current understanding of the behavior of trace and ultratrace elements in the biogeochemical cycling, chemical speciation, bioavailability, bioaccumulation, and as applied to the phytoremediation of contaminated soils. Addressing worldwide regulatory,...

Flocculation in Natural and Engineered Environmental Systems

1st Edition

Steven N. Liss, Ian G. Droppo, Gary G. Leppard, Timothy G. Milligan
December 28, 2004

While new developments in genomics, nanotechnology, sampling, and modelling permit increasingly revealing investigation into flocculation structure and processes, there is still a fundamental lack of knowledge related to many aspects of this phenomenon. Presented by a prominent team of...

Heavy Metals Release in Soils

1st Edition

H. Magdi Selim, Donald L. Sparks
June 15, 2001

Understanding the mechanisms associated with metal complexes and the sequestering metal contaminants in the environment is essential for effective remediation. Heavy Metal Release in Soils describes and quantifies desorption/release kinetics and dissolution reactions in the release of heavy metals...

Multimedia Environmental Models: The Fugacity Approach, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Donald Mackay
February 26, 2001

Completely revised and updated, Multimedia Environmental Models: The Fugacity Approach, Second Edition continues to provide simple techniques for calculating how chemicals behave in the environment, where they accumulate, how long they persist, and how this leads to human exposure. The book...

1st Edition

John M. Kimble
June 28, 2000

Global Climate Change and Cold Regions Ecosystems provides information on soil processes and the carbon cycle in cold ecoregions as well as the soil carbon pool and its fluxes in the soils of cold ecoregions. Filling a void in this area of soil science, this resource explains soil processes...

Groundwater and the Environment: Applications for the Global Community

1st Edition

Igor S. Zektser, Lorne G. Everett
June 21, 2000

Historically, water has been treated as an inexhaustible resource. However, with the growth of population and development of industry and agriculture, freshwater demand has increased drastically, and its shortage felt in roughly 60% of the Earth. As early as 1931, renowned Russian scholar A.P....

Handbook of Property Estimation Methods for Chemicals: Environmental Health Sciences

1st Edition

Donald Mackay, Robert S. Boethling
March 29, 2000

A complete restructuring and updating of the classic 1982 Handbook of Chemical Property Estimation Methods (commonly known as "Lyman's Handbook"), the Handbook of Property Estimation Methods for Chemicals: Environmental and Health Sciences reviews and recommends practical methods for estimating...

Diffusion Models of Environmental Transport

1st Edition

Bruce Choy, Danny D. Reible
October 28, 1999

Fate and transport models are critical components in the determination of the exposure to and risk from hazardous contaminants. Analytical models are preferable because they are generally more accessible, more reliable, and require fewer computational resources. Surprisingly, until today, only a...
