About this book

Water pollution is by necessity an interdisciplinary field involving scientists and professionals with a wide range of expertise. It also transcends national borders, since the contamination of water resources is a problem of global concern. The International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Prevention of Water Pollution, held biennially in different locations around the world, has been providing a forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest developments in the field since 1991.

The papers in this volume present some of the latest results in this important field; work which is essential to understanding the nature of the problem and for proposing appropriate solutions, which may eventually provide the guidelines required to take steps towards the remediation or recovery of water resources. Water Pollution XI contains papers presented at the latest (Eleventh) Conference and includes the following topics: Water quality; Groundwater and aquifer issues; Environmental monitoring and control; Remediation; Pollution prevention; Lakes and rivers; Agricultural contamination; Wastewater treatment and management; Offshore pollution and oil spills; Emerging technologies; Biosensors; Health risk studies; Nano-particles; Socio-economic costs; Biosystems; Education and training.
