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....

Handbook of Chemical Regulations: Benchmarking, Implementation, and Engineering Concepts

1st Edition

Martha J. Boss, Brad Boss, Cybil Boss, Dennis W. Day
July 26, 2017

The first book of its kind, Handbook of Chemical Regulations: Benchmarking, Implementation, and Engineering Concepts introduces the concept of global harmonization and interlinks between regulations and examines the reasons behind major requirements for chemical manufacture, article production, and...

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...

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

1st Edition

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...

Analytical Measurements in Aquatic Environments

1st Edition

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...

Oceanic Acidification: A Comprehensive Overview

1st Edition

Ronald Eisler
May 31, 2017

This book critically examines the available literature on oceanic acidification, including a historical review of pH and atmospheric CO2 levels over the millennia; natural and anthropogenic sources of CO2 to the atmosphere and sea surface; chemical, physical, and biological mode of action;...

Environmental Problems in Marine Biology: Methodological Aspects and Applications

1st Edition

Tamara Garcia Barrera, Jose Luis Gomez Ariza
May 11, 2017

Marine environment can be affected by several pollutants such as the presence of elements and their chemical species, pharmaceuticals, nanoparticles and other emerging contaminants. Environmental monitoring can be assessed by genomics, proteomics (i.e. redox proteomics), chemical speciation...
