Provides a broad review of metals and organic compounds in the environment, focusing on three areas: the fate and transport of chemicals in soil, sediment, water, and air; the environmental impacts of chemicals on the environment, wildlife and humans; and the remediation, methodologies and applications of chemicals in the environment.
"Based on an August 2000 symposium that highlighted EPA research, this collection overviews progress made in understanding the movement of chemicals in soil and water, monitoring environmental impacts, and developing remediation methods. The 27 papers explore chemical fate and transport models, the use of molecular biology methods for measuring ecological indicators, and groundwater and soil remediation using electrical fields. Other topics include atmospheric sources of trace metals, speciation and chemical reactions of phosphonate chelating agents in aqueous media, analysis of sediment PAH contamination, and the mechanisms controlling chlorocarbon reduction at iron surfaces."--SciTech Book News
