Table of Contents

I. Today's Environmental Geochemistry--A Review of New Concepts and Innovative Practices; II. Geochemistry in Surface and Groundwater Research; III. Lithosphere-Hydrosphere Interactions: Applications of Geochemical Principles; IV. Geochemistry in Soils Research; V. Environmental Biogeochemistry--Concepts and Case Studies; VI. Application of Geochemical Principles in Environmental Quality and Remediation Research; VII. Applications of New Analytical and Quantitative Methods in Environmental Geochemistry Research


This volume is for environmental researchers and government policy makers who are required to monitor environmental quality for their environmental investigators and remediation plans. It uses concepts and applications to aid in the exchange of scientific information across all the environmental science disciplines ranging from geochemistry to hydrogeology and ecology to biotechnology. Focusing on issues such as metals, organics and nutrient contamination of water and soils, and interactions between soil-water-plants-chemicals, the book synthesizes the latest findings in this rapidly-developing, multi-disciplinary field. Cutting-edge environmental analytical methods are also presented, making this a must-have for professionals tasked with monitoring environmental quality. These concepts and applications help in decision making and problem solving in a single resource.
