Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment by Harold F. Hemond,Elizabeth J. Fechner

By Harold F. Hemond,Elizabeth J. Fechner

The 3rd variation of Chemical destiny and delivery within the Environment—winner of a 2015 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) from The textual content and educational Authors Association—explains the basic rules of mass shipping, chemical partitioning, and chemical/biological variations in floor waters, in soil and groundwater, and in air. every one of those 3 significant environmental media is brought via descriptive overviews, via a presentation of the controlling actual, chemical, and organic techniques. The textual content emphasizes intuitively established mathematical types for chemical shipping and changes within the setting, and serves either as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate classes in environmental technology and engineering, and as a customary reference for environmental practitioners.

  • Winner of a 2015 Texty Award from the textual content and educational Authors Association
  • Includes many labored examples in addition to wide routines on the finish of every chapter
  • Illustrates the interconnections and similarities between environmental media via its assurance of floor waters, the subsurface, and the atmosphere
  • Written and arranged concisely to map to a single-semester course
  • Discusses and builds upon basic concepts, ensuring that the cloth is out there to readers who don't have an intensive history in environmental science
