About this book

A much-needed publication, as the only competing text (Fischer et al) was written over 15 years ago. Throughout the book, emphasis is placed on understanding the physical processes limited to the dispersion of dissolved substances and fine suspended matter. The subject is described in simple terms, in order to appeal to a wide and varied audience, and includes global case studies.
