About this book
Focusing on theory, correlations, and predictive methods, Handbook of Estimation Methods for Chemical Mass Transport in the Environment addresses major data requirements for assessing environmental fate, in particular rates of transport between air, water, and soil. This book presents the fundamentals of mass transport and provides detailed discussions of individual transport processes and individual mass-transport coefficients. With contributions from leading experts in each subject, it also includes tables that contain transport parameter ranges for typical, defined environmental conditions. This text is complementary to the Handbook of Property Estimation Methods for Chemicals.
