About this book

As environmental standards are re-evaluated and modified, different issues take on different levels of importance. Today, the presence of chromium in soil and groundwater is one of the leading environmental issues. Chromium in Soil discusses the challenges faced by those investigating and remediating chromium-impacted soils and groundwater.
