This new updated and expanded edition of Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment covers the fundamental principles of mass transport, chemical partitioning and chemical/biological transformations in surface waters, soil groundwater, and air. Each of these three major environmental media is introduced by descriptive overviews, followed by presentation of the controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. The text emphasizes intuitively based mathematical models for chemical transport and transformations in the environment, and serves both as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses in environmental science and engineering, and as a standard reference for environmental practitioners. The book features an integrated treatment of the major environmental media together with quantitative treatment of processes, unlike purely descriptive textbooks, with ample references to primary literature.
