About this book

Volume 9 focuses on natural and anthropogenic environmental contaminants and their implications for human health and the environment. Environmental impacts on soils, groundwater, freshwater, the oceans and atmosphere are examined in the context of both inorganic geochemistry (metals, metalloids, radioactive compounds, mineral dusts, dissolved salts, acidification) and organic geochemistry (halogenated and non-halogenated hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds, fuel oxygenates, pesticides, nutrients). Issues of risk, toxicity and exposure assessment; contaminant fate and transport; remediation and disposal; and source identification are examined in this context.

Reprinted individual volume from the acclaimed Treatise on Geochemistry 10 Volume Set

Media reviews
The book, like the others within The Treatise, is an indispensable reference for academics and environamental managers and regulators. -J. Albaiges, in INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, 2005 "The authors...should also be commended for coming through with accessible, yet comprehensive and cutting-edge treatments of their topics. ...I highly recommend Environmental Geochemistry...for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals." -Barry Bickmore, Brigham Young University for Elements, June 2006
