Handbook of Water Analysis

Handbook / Manual
  • Summarizes current analytical techniques for water samples as well as sample collection, storage, preservation, pre-treatment, and instrumentation
  • Explains the parameters and assays involved in organic pollution
  • Covers bacteriological and algal analysis, as well as the occurrence and detection of marine toxins
  • Summarizes health and environmental problems due to radionuclides in water and presents new techniques for their determination
  • Includes harmful or toxic components originating from domestic, agricultural, or industrial sources that can be found in different waters
  • Examines the challenging category of micropollutants, such as endocrine disrupting compounds, pharmaceutical personal care products, and plastic residues
  • Discusses anthropogenic polluting compounds such as pesticides, PCBs, PCDDs, PCDFS, PAHs, petroleum hydrocarbons, and surfactants

About this book

Extensively revised and updated, Handbook of Water Analysis, Third Edition provides current analytical techniques, starting from 2005 until now, for detecting various compounds in water samples. Maintaining the detailed and accessible style of both former editions, this third edition demonstrates water sampling and preservation methods by enumerating different ways to measure chemical and radiological characteristics and giving step-by-step descriptions of separation, residue determination, and clean-up techniques for a variety of fresh- and saltwater.

" [...] addresses the importance of sampling methods and discusses and compares various storage containers; an extensive table presents recommendations for storage containers. [...] valuable as a working reference manual, and is most suitable for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in the field of water analysis; it may also be useful in advanced undergraduate courses where student research is required. [...] Highly recommended."
– A. S. Casparian, formerly, Wentworth Institute oj Technology in CHOICE Magazine, April 2014
