About this book

Discusses the application of geochemical models to environmental practice and studies. Includes case studies of real-world environmental problems, such as acid mine drainage, pit lake chemistry, nuclear waste disposal, and landfill leachates. Information presented for each example includes; the environmental threat in question; how geochemical modelling may help solve the problem posed; and how to prepare input files for geochemical modelling codes and interpret the results in terms of meeting regulatory requirements. Supported by a dedicated website.

Media reviews
...an excellent text for an introduction to fundamental principles and practical techniques of geochemical modeling as applied to problems in environmental contamination. Ground Water "...well written, easy to read, and well illustrated. The authors are to be commended for their honest evaluation of modeling and their challenge to increase their use and enhance the realism of modeling in natural settings." Journal of the American Water Resources Association
