About this book

Diffuse pollution of the water environment is an increasingly prominent issue. It represents a problem much more widespread, more complex in character and more difficult to solve than classical organic point pollution: there is no "end-of-pipe" to which a technological fix can be applied. The aim of "DIFusePol '95" was to understand these problems better and develop solutions. The 48 papers in this issue have been selected from over 130 contributions presented orally or in poster sessions at the conference. They are grouped into the following themes: overview and policy papers; nutrient loads and consequences; agricultural pollution and best management practices; groundwater pollution-diffuse sources and management; atmospheric deposition and its consequences; eco-technological methods of pollutant removal; monitoring pollution.
