Chemistry for environmental engineering
Considered the definitive text for the first course in chemistry for environmental engineers. This text has a two-fold purpose: 1) bring into focus those aspects of chemistry which are particularly valuable to environmental engineering practices, and 2) lay a groundwork of understanding in the area of specialized quantitative analysis, commonly referred to as "water and wastewater analysis."
