About this book

With all EC countries receiving the EC Directive on Water Quality, there is a greater need to improve the quality of measurements, both in chemical and biological fields. This volume discusses methods of sampling, analytical determination and data interpretation of lake water in relation to the current legislation and guidelines. Topics covered include essential limnology such as lake stratification, eutrophication, hazards associated with blue/green algae, acidification and liming.

This book is attractive reading for all analytical chemists and environmentalists working in the field. (International Jnl of EnvironmentalAnalytical Chemistry, Vol.80, No. 302 2001) "This book should be on the shelf of all universities where environmental studies/science, hydrology, limnology, water resources or physical geography is taught at postgraduate level." (Int Jnl of Environment Studies, Vol.58 2001) "...Overall this is a very good book..." (AREA, Vol.34, No.2, 2002)


Contents

Abiotic processes in lakes; biocoenosis in evaluation of the ecological status of the lake; harmful substances in lake environment; new approaches in lake monitoring; quality assessment; managing of monitoring results.
