"Priority Pollutants Monitoring in Water: Protocols for Measurement and Analysis" addresses the critical topic of measuring and analyzing priority pollutants in the Earth s water systems. As the challenge of monitoring and measuring hazardous substances in our waters is becoming greater with the increasing number of chemicals being added to the list, the levels at which they are occurring, and the variety of sources of the compounds from which they originate, this book helps provide answers to the challenges that have created a need for new and robust analytic methods.
The book includes all current and emerging techniques for analyzing priority pollutants and hazardous substances, and describes the application of these analytical techniques to a wide range of matrices. Written primarily for analytical chemists and environmental scientists, this book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in priority pollutants, from legislation issues to sampling, analytic techniques, and data management.
