Description

Volume 11a on the biotechnology of wastewater is succeeded by the second of three volumes on environmental processes: Volume 11b gives a profound overview of the decontamination of soil.
Part I deals with general aspects of soil decontamination. Microbial fundamentals and particular degradation processes are dealt with in Part II, and analytical techniques and methods of soil clean-up are presented in Part III.
