about

This standard work on contaminated site management covers the whole chain of steps involved in dealing with contaminated sites, from site investigation to remediation. An important focus throughout the book is on Risk Assessment. In addition, the book includes chapters on characterisation of natural and urban soils, bioavailability, natural attenuation, policy and stakeholder viewpoints and Brownfields. Typically, the book includes in-depth theories on soil contamination, along with offering possibilities for practical applications. More than sixty of the world's top experts from Europe, the USA, Australia and Canada have contributed to this book. The twenty-five chapters in this book offer relevant information for experienced scientists, students, consultants and regulators, as well as for 'new players' in contaminated site management

The twenty-five chapters in this book offer relevant information for experienced scientists, students, consultants and regulators, as well as for 'new players' in contaminated site management'This is an ambitious book that deals with contaminated sites from beginning to end.   It provides an excellent framing for the assessment and management of sites and provides chapters with enough detail to provide a reader with a launching point to delve into the literature.    It is very well suited to an upper year/graduate level course in contaminated site management because it deals with all four disciplines involved in contaminated site managements provides substantive introduction to the key issues in these disciplines that influence site management and remediation.   I highly recommend adding this book to your library.' Steven Siciliano, Professor of Soil Toxicology, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK. Canada.'Every EPA in Romania should buy this book and use it as a bible.' Dr. Marie-Jeanne Adler, Ddirector of the National Institute of Hydrology and Water Management, Bucharest, Romania'Thanks for having assembled this on behalf of the contaminated land community. A perfect balance of theoretical underpinning and practical application of science, which is exactly the gap that was missing among current books on the subject'. Prof. Simon Pollard, Cranfield University, UK'The book provides in-depth analysis in environmental standard development, environmental economics and policy. We believe that the book will give high-level theoretical guidance for effective management of contaminated sites in China'. Prof. Fasheng Li, Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences, Beijing, P.R.China 'I strongly recommend this book for graduate students and researchers working with Environmental Soil Science'.Prof. Luis Alleoni, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil
