Media reviews

From the reviews: "I would recommend that all scientists, mining engineers and students who are involved in mine water work buy "Mine Water" by Younger et al., for it provides a one stop shop on issues of characterisation and remediation." (Mine Water and the Environment, 21) "Throughout this work, there is a consistent integration of engineering, chemistry, and microbiology. This comprehensive book is thoroughly researched and well written overall. There are clear and abundant schematics and many useful tables and graphs... This would also be an extremely useful textbook for students of mining engineering or mine reclamation." (Journal of Environmental Quality, 32 (March-April 2003) "This book introduces a synopsis of global mining techniques and follows with a comprehensive analysis of the impact of mine water by characterizing it from chemical and physical perspectives. ! The authors, recognized leaders in the field of mine water treatment, are successful in relating this information from a multidisciplinary perspective. The engineering processes and physics and chemistry of mine wastes and remediation technologies are well documented throughout the text." (Aisling D. O'Sullivan, Ecological Engineering, Vol. 25, 2005)
