This comprehensive reference describes investigations of the fate of toxic chemicals emanating from hazardous waste sites and contaminating groundwater, discussing the hydrogeochemistry at US, Canadian, Australian, and German sites to reflect the different approaches used around the world. Written by over 30 international experts in the field, "Groundwater Contamination and Analysis at Hazardous Waste Sites": presents case histories spanning 30 years of activities by the United States Geological Survey's Organics in Water project, including studies of pesticide, munition, and wood preservative residues contaminating groundwater; outlines the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's SW-846 methods of analysis for groundwater samples taken at hazardous waste sites; details the analytical requirements for qualitative surveys, regulatory compliance, and research programs; examines the use of statistics at site investigations and waste disposal facilities as well as data interpretation techniques such as multivariate plots; covers the application of a portable gas chromatograph in studying a vapor-phase plume of trichloroethylene, giving tips about problems that may lead to variability in the data; and explores dense nonaqueous-phase liquid dissolution using Raoult's law, biotransformation of the dissolved constituents, and their sorption to aquifer materials. Extensively illustrated with more than 250 figures, tables, and display equations, "Groundwater Contamination and Analysis at Hazardous Waste Sites" is a practical tool for pollution control and environmental engineers, hydrogeologists, analytical chemists, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
