Environmental Chemistry: A Comprehensive Approach
John Wiley & Sons, Nov 3, 2020 - Science - 688 pages
This book is a very comprehensive project designed to provide complete information about environmental chemistry, including air, water, soil and all life forms on earth. The complete chemical composition and all the essential components of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere, lithosphere and biosphere are discussed in detail. Numerous forms of pollutants and their toxic effects along with sustainable solutions are provided.
Not just covering the basics of environmental chemistry, the authors discuss many specific areas and issues, and they provide practical solutions. The problems of non-renewable energy processes and the merits of renewable energy processes along with future fuels are discussed in detail, making this volume a comprehensive collaboration of many other relevant fields which tries to fill the knowledge gap of all previously available books on the market. It also thoroughly covers all environment-related issues, internationally recognized standard values, and the socioeconomic impacts on society for the short and long term.
A valuable reference for engineers, scientists, chemists, and students, this volume is applicable to many different fields, across many different industries, at all levels. It is a must-have for any library.

An exceptionally good book on environmental chemistry, providing information about the environmental elements, I. e., water, soil, air and other life forms on the planet earth. This book provides a complete insight into the components of atmosphere, biisphere, lithosphere and geosphere. Additionally, it discusses several issues related to environment. In short, this is a valuable book for the students, researchers and those dealing with environmental issues.
Amazing book. Appreciate and admire the work of all the authors who tried to compile all the information in a single book. Starting from the basic concepts about the composition of environment further elaborating the wider aspects and problems regarding environmental pollution. Looking forward to read it in detail.
