This newly updated and expanded edition of Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment covers the fundamental principles of mass transport, chemical partitioning, andchemical/biological transformations in surface waters, in soil and groundwater, and in air. Eachof these three major environmental media are introduced by descriptive overviews, followed bypresentation of the controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. The textemphasizes intuitively based mathematical models for chemical transport and transformations inthe environment, and serves both as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses inenvironmental science and engineering, and as a standard reference for environmental practitioners. Key Features* Provides an integrated coverage of major environmental media* Presents a quantitative treatment of fate and transport processes* Is based on a graduate-level course taught for 10 years at MIT, augmented with practical consulting experience* Features examples and illustrations throughout the text* Includes extensive exercises at the end of each chapter* Contains ample references to the primary literature

Customer Reviews of Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Text Like many engineering texts, this one, too, specializes countless derivations of equations without actually directing the student on its purpose or use. The text does have many, many sample questions but does not actually provide solutions or guidance on how to find solutions. Of the chapter review questions, it is a hodge-podge of endless questions from various areas of the text; however, the instructor only assigns portions of the chapter for study; therefore, not helpful.
