Colloids are known to be the often neglected phase for the transport of pollutants in aquatic ecosystems. This book covers the basics of abiotic colloid characterization, of biocolloids and biofilms, the resulting transport phenomena and their engineering aspects. The contributors are leading specialists devoted to colloidal sciences. The discussion reflects their broad scope of viewpoint and depth of expertise. Coverage includes theoretical considerations, results from model experiments, and field studies.

Of interest for scientists, graduates, undergraduates, lecturers, libraries, professionals.
