Summaries
Main Description
Here is the first volume to comprehensively discuss the range of methods available for the analysis of metal and anions in soils, river and marine sediments, and industrial sludges. A special feature is its coverage of solid sewage, which is increasingly being applied to land as fertilizer. The reader is presented with details of the methods of analysis available, their applicability in certain environments, advantages and disadvantages of one method against another, likely causes of interference, and the sensitivity of methods and detection limits.
Main Description
Determination of Metals and Anions in Soils, Sediments and Sludgesis the first volume which comprehensively discusses the range of methods currently available for the analysis of metals and anions in soils, river and marine sediments and industrial sludges. There are specialist chapters on sampling, pollutant accumulation in sediments and bioaccumulation from soils to crops. A particular feature of this volume is its coverage of solid sewage, which is increasingly being applied to land as a fertilizer. An essential reference for chemists and toxicologists involved in water resource management, agrochemistry, fisheries and public health.
