Description

Metals in Water: Global Sources, Significance, and Treatment covers all areas of metal pollution in water, where this comes from, the effects it has and how it can be remediated. The book begins with an introductory overview of heavy metals pollution in water and is followed by a global distribution of heavy metal pollutants, their health impacts and remediation measures. Geogenic and anthropogenic input of heavy metals in water are described in detail along with global case studies, step by step methods on remediation techniques alone with different detection sensor and assessment of toxicity of heavy metals. Metals in Water: Global Sources, Significance, and Treatment focuses on the recent research of heavy metals contamination in water resources and its impact across the globe. The chapters incorporate both theoretical and practical aspects and serve as baseline information for water resources studies. This book is useful for postgraduate students, teachers, and researchers working in areas of water resources and pollution, hydrochemistry, environmental remediation and toxicology looking to understand the affects metals have on water, the environment and health, and also those looking for methods for remediation.

Key Features

  • Presents global case studies of sites contaminated by metals, the effects on the environment and successful remediation techniques
  • Includes a whole section on remedial measures, with clear step-by-step "how to" guides
  • Provides chapters covering detailed biogeochemical processes

Readership

Environmental scientists at graduate level and above, especially those focusing on water pollution and remediation and health aspects. Chemical engineers, public health professionals and social scientists with an interest/ focus on water pollution
