Chemical fate and transport in the environment

Author: Harold F Hemond; Elizabeth J Fechner-Levy
Publisher: San Diego : Academic Press, ©1994.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment covers the fundamental principles of mass transport chemical partitioning, and chemical transformation in surface waters, in groundwater or subsurface environments, and in the atmosphere. Each of these three major environmental media are introduced by descriptive overviews, including the controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. The text emphasizes  Read more...
