About this book

It is becoming increasingly realised that the oceans and rivers, in particular, are not unlimited reservoir into which waste can be dumped and that control of these emissions is necessary if complete destruction of the environment is to be avoided. T. R. Crompton has drawn together up-to-date information on these issues and on the relevant analytical methods needed by all experts active in environmental protection and toxicology.

From the reviews: "In the course of 11 chapters in 450 pages with 134 tables and eight appendixes, Crompton provides an abundance of useful information. ! The results from the literature cover all the major components of the aquatic ecosystem: water, sediment, fish, invertebrates, and plant life. ! Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals." (D. A. Vaccari, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (11), August, 2007)
