Particulate Matter and Aquatic Contaminants
Particulate Matter and Aquatic Contaminants presents eight chapters dedicated to promoting a better understanding of suspended particulate-contaminant interactions and some of the biological, microbiological, and ecotoxicological principles associated with contaminant adsorption and transportation processes. The information presented reflects information and techniques at the leading edge of "biological-contaminant" research and addresses a number of toxic contaminant issues of global concern. Particulate Matter and Aquatic Contaminants will be invaluable to environmental chemists, environmental toxicologists, water quality professionals, modelers involved in environmental transport, environmental managers, and regulators.
