Interactions of Toxic Organics with Subsoils Components

  • Conference paper

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIG,volume 32)

Abstract

Technological progress has certainly made life more pleasant but it has also increased the danger of environmental pollution. Groundwater is among the most seriously threatened environmental resources. Although groundwater contamination has occurred for centuries, population demands and agricultural activities, as well as increased industrialization, have certainly exacerbated the problem. Much of the concern over groundwater quality is due to the occurrence of anthropogenic organic compounds in these water resources; this concern is reflected by the U.S. priority pollutants list in which organic compounds are the majority (114/129≈88%) [Callahan et al. 1979].
