Vol. 48 in the Nato Science Series: IV: Earth and Environmental Sciences. Water is a paramount determinant of life. The WHO experts beleive that the sickness and death rate of the world population could be reduced by 75% by maintaining the quality of drinking water. That is why over 30 leading scientists and specialists from fifteen countries attended this meeting to discuss the scientific concepts and practical means for the solution of the complex social, economic and ecological problems associated with water purification. The scope of the book is further illustrated by the contents list as follows:
