About this book

This book deals with environmental chemistry, which is defined as the chemistry that is used to solve environmental problems of all kinds. Environmental chemistry has become an independent discipline within chemistry because it copes with problems that require solutions different from those used in other chemical disciplines. However, environmental chemists need an overview of the other environmental sciences, ecology and environmental technology. This book is particularly concerned with modelling as a powerful tool and provides a comprehensive overview of the application of models in environmental chemistry based on pure chemistry, chemical concepts and approaches to solutions.
