Environmental Modeling: Fate and Transport of Pollutants in Water, Air, and Soil (0471124362) cover image
A comprehensive, thoroughly modern approach to environmental quality assessment

The only textbook to combine engineering transport fundamentals and equilibrium aquatic chemistry, Environmental Modeling brings a uniquely contemporary perspective to the assessment of environmental quality. Addressing key questions about fate, transport, and long-term effects of chemical pollutants in the environment, this inherently practical text gives readers the important tools they need to develop and solve their own mathematical models.

Contains detailed examples from a wide range of crucial water quality areas-conventional pollutants in rivers, eutrophication of lakes, and toxic organic chemicals and heavy metals in both surface and groundwaters

Examines current global issues, including atmospheric deposition, hazardous wastes, soil pollution, global change, and more

Features over 200 high-quality illustrations, plus skill-building problems in every chapter

Fresh in approach and broad in scope, Environmental Modeling is must reading for today's graduate and advanced undergraduate students in environmental sciences and engineering-a rich, invaluable, and superlative new resource.
