About this book

Addressing key issues related to the field, "Applications of Environmental Aquatic Chemistry: A Practical Guide" provides the essential background for understanding and applying the material to practical problems. This second edition features a new chapter on radioisotope contaminants along with new sections on the principles of environmental forensics; organic contaminants such as chlorinated solvents; hazardous wastes, including EPA definitions; wastewater treatment of industrial, municipal, and agricultural wastes; and, interpreting the significance of water quality data. The text also discusses regulatory requirements for discharges and contains end-of-chapter worked problems.
