Volume 1 of the Sustainable Management of Sediment Resources mini-series is the first attempt to fill many of these gaps in knowledge and also in practice. The volume includes sections on:
- Characterization of contaminants in sediments being bioavailability the main issue
- Chemical analysis
- Biological analysis
- Effect directed analysis and toxicity
- Identification evaluation
- Benthos sediment quality assessment
- Modelling of pollutant fate and behaviour
- Sediment quality guidelines
This first volume is applicable to a wide audience, from students at the graduate level, to experienced researchers and laboratory personnel in academia, industry and government.
This volume also available as part of a 4-volume set, ISBN 0444519599. Discount price for set purchase.
- A broad overview on sediment quality and impact assessment of pollutants
- Suitable for both newcomers to the field of sediment treatment and specialists alike
- Outlines practical examples of methods used in sediment quality analysis
Students at the graduate level as well as to experienced researchers and laboratory personnel in academia, industry and government

Prof. dr. Barcelo Damia, Director of the Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA) and Professor at the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA), Barcelona, Spain. His expertise is in water quality assessment and management, fate, risk and removal of emerging contaminants in wastewater treatment plants and analysis, fate and risk of emerging contaminants and nanomaterials in the aquatic environment. He published over 900 papers, 200 book chapters and has h index 91. He was a coordinator of several national and EU projects and at the moment he coordinates two EU projects: GLOBAQUA , on multiple stressors in the aquatic environment and SEA-on-a-CHIP, on the development of sensor technolgies for emerging contamaints in marine aquaculture. He is CoEditor in Chief of the journal Science of Total Environment and the book series Comprehensive Analytical Chemistry, both form Elsevier..
