Remediation Engineering: Design Concepts

Front Cover
CRC Press, Oct 24, 1996 - Science - 384 pages
2 Reviews
In many cases, the application of in situ technologies evolved as a necessity from a cost perspective. However, the basic understanding of the mechanisms and theory behind these technologies was treated as a "black box." Although we have seen some tremendous successes in the application of remediation technologies over the past several years, we have also seen many cases in which a technology has been incorrectly or inappropriately applied. In most cases, this misapplication has been the result of a poor understanding of the basic concepts and mechanisms behind the technologies. Without proper understanding, the potential for misapplication of technologies remains a serious economic and technical threat.

My review is about the ebook format rather than the contents.
This ebook does NOT support flowing text, so it is nearly impossible to read on a small screen, like an Android, nor can you change
the text size. It is basically a scan of the pages. When reading offline using Adobe Digital Editions, there is no electronic table of contents, the text is not searchable, the cover does not appear, and there is no option to print. The text is searchable if you read online, and you can see the cover, but there is no way to print even one page. The 'sale' price is only about $20 less than you can buy a NEW hardback on Amazon, which I now wish I had done. Last year I paid a similar amount for an organic chemistry ebook (readable in Adobe Digital Editions) and got the ability to print a few pages at a time, nice clean crisp text, color, and an electronic table of contents. I expected something similar; I am very disappointed. I doubt I will buy a Google book again any time soon.
