About this book

This book summarizes current knowledge on aquatic and terrestrial environmental quality standards and places it in a wider socioeconomic and regulatory context. It explains how to derive environmental standards that are defensible from a scientific and socioeconomic perspective. Using multidisciplinary techniques that can be applied to water, sediments and soils, the text demonstrates how to select the best form and derivation method relative to individual environmental standards. The authors presents an in-depth and expedient consideration of when, where and how environmental standards should be implemented based on social and economic context.
