About this series
There are many global environmental issues that are directly related to varying levels of contamination from both inorganic and organic contaminants. These affect the quality of drinking water, food, soil, aquatic ecosystems, urban systems, agricultural systems and natural habitats. This has led to the development of assessment methods and remediation strategies to identify, reduce, remove or contain contaminant loadings from these systems using various natural or engineered technologies. In most cases, these strategies utilize interdisciplinary approaches that rely on chemistry, ecology, toxicology, hydrology, modeling and engineering.
This book series provides an outlet to summarize environmental contamination related topics that provide a path forward in understanding the current state and mitigation, both regionally and globally.Topic areas may include, but are not limited to, Environmental Fate and Effects, Environmental Effects Monitoring, Water Re-use, Waste Management, Food Safety, Ecological Restoration, Remediation of Contaminated Sites, Analytical Methodology, and Climate Change.
