Transport and Fate of Chemicals in the Environment, 2012 Selected Entries from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateur : Gulliver John S.

Couverture de l’ouvrage Transport and Fate of Chemicals in the Environment
What happens when a chemical is released into the environment? It diffuses, disperses, adsorbs, reacts, and/or changes state.  To predict and analyze this process, the mathematics of diffusion is applied to lakes, rivers, groundwater, the atmosphere, the oceans, and transport between these media.  A sustainable world requires a deep understanding of the transport of chemicals through the environment and how to address and harness this process.  This volume presents a succinct and in-depth introduction to this critical topic.  Featuring authoritative, peer-reviewed articles from the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology, Transport and Fate of Chemicals in the Environment represents an essential one-stop reference for an audience of researchers, undergraduate and graduate students, and industry professionals. Provides detailed background on environmental chemistry, diffusion and transport. Examines transport and fate in single media as well as inter-media transfer of chemicals. Covers transport and fate in rivers, lakes, the oceans, and groundwater. Demonstrates key applications of  transport and fate analyses within the ecosphere.
