About this book

This title presents in one volume the 'toolbox' of methods required for water quality monitoring and assesses their potential for underpinning environmental management and legislation. It discusses methodology within the current legislative framework. Screening methods covered will save both money and time in water quality assessment. It is a timely source of information for those involved in water management at all levels.

Scientists, analysts and policy developers will find the book attractive for their specific needs. (Chemistry Journals, 11 April 2011)
