Monitoring Environmental Contaminants, the latest release in the Environmental Contaminants series, focuses on the wide range of new technologies and approaches available for monitoring chemical and biological contaminants in air, water, soil and food. These new methods allow us to monitor a wider range of contaminants at much greater and temporal resolutions. Adoption of these methods could result in a change in our understanding of how humans and ecosystems are exposed to contaminants in different environmental media. In addition, the book describes challenges in the adoption of some of these new approaches, such as the use of mining techniques for large data.

Case studies within provide thorough illustration for researchers, academics and scientists involved in ecology and environmental sciences.

Key Features

  • Brings together chapters from a wide range of research in ecology and the environmental sciences
  • Utilizes an easily understandable style that can be absorbed by a wide audience
  • Uses case studies to illuminate the application of selected novel contamination monitoring approaches


Researchers, undergraduate and graduate students, and environmental and civil engineers who have an interest in the impacts of chemical contaminants on the environment

About the Authors

Steven Johnson Author

Dr Steve Johnson has been a lecturer in the Department of Electronics since 2012. His research interests are in biologically-inspired technologies and in particular hybrid systems that merge the functions and properties of biological systems with the world of electronics. This requires a highly multi-disciplinary approach to research and he collaborates closely with scientists and engineers from within physics, chemistry, molecular biology and the clinical sciences. Steve is Deputy Director of the Graduate School, leads the Bio-Inspired Technologies Laboratory and is academic manager of the York Electronics Cleanroom. He is also a visiting scientist at the University of Leeds, a position he was awarded in 2012. Steve is Associate Editor of the academic journal Nanomaterials and Nanodevices.
