About this book

This book deals with environmental and human risk problems caused by contamination from the perspective of real world applications with quantitative procedures. It includes risk methods for the discussion of environmental problems where data are sparse or fuzzy, as well as incorporating political, social and economic considerations in determining directions of remediation solutions for environmental contaminant problems. Furthermore, it highlights the impact of contaminants on human health, in some cases ultimately leading to death, as well as the anthropogenic exacerbation of natural processes.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "This book deals with environment and human risk problems caused by contamination that have occurred and that are still ongoing. ! For professionals in the field, seriously involved in remediation efforts, this volume provides a detailed set of procedures to analyse the scientific consequences of environmental problems. The volume should be of use to decision-makers in both government and private industry who are actively involved in balancing the social, economic, political, scientific, and health issues for the best benefits of the population." (International Journal of Environmental and Analytical Chemistry, Vol. 86, 2006)
