  • 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

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.
