This newly updated and expanded edition of Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment covers the fundamental principles of mass transport, chemical partitioning, andchemical/biological transformations in surface waters, in soil and groundwater, and in air. Eachof these three major environmental media are introduced by descriptive overviews, followed bypresentation of the controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. The textemphasizes intuitively based mathematical models for chemical transport and transformations inthe environment, and serves both as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses inenvironmental science and engineering, and as a standard reference for environmental practitioners.
Senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students in environmental science or environmental engineering programs; students in other disciplines, such as geotechnical engineering, who seek basic environmental literacy; practitioners in environmental consulting and management firms and government agencies.
