Sediment Quality and Impact Assessment of Pollutants by Damia Barcelo

Book Description

Volume 1 of the "Sustainable Management of Sediment Resources" mini-series is the first attempt to fill many of these gaps in knowledge and also in practice. The volume includes sections on: Sampling; Characterization of contaminants in sediments being bioavailability the main issue; Chemical analysis; Biological analysis; Effect directed analysis and toxicity; Identification evaluation; Benthos sediment quality assessment; Modelling of pollutant fate and behaviour; and, Sediment quality guidelines. This first volume is applicable to a wide audience, from students at the graduate level, to experienced researchers and laboratory personnel in academia, industry and government. This volume is also available as part of a 4-volume set, ISBN 0444519599. It offers a broad overview on sediment quality and impact assessment of pollutants, and is suitable for both newcomers to the field of sediment treatment and specialists alike. It outlines practical examples of methods used in sediment quality analysis.

Analysis, Removal, Effects and Risk of Pharmaceuticals in the Water Cycle by Damia Barcelo Analysis, Removal, Effects and Risk of Pharmaceuticals in the Water Cycle, Hardback (November 2013)

Provides an overview of the analytical methods for trace determination of pharmaceuticals in environmental samples. This book reviews the fate and occurrence of pharmaceuticals in the water cycle for their elimination in wastewater and drinking water treatment, focusing on the developments in treatment technologies.

Analysis and Risk of Nanomaterials in Environmental and Food Samples by Damia Barcelo Analysis and Risk of Nanomaterials in Environmental and Food Samples, Hardback (August 2012)

Covers ecotoxicological evaluation of nanomaterials in food and the environment, with both matrices being of considerable interest. This title shows how used chromatographic and spectroscopic methods can be added to the analytical arsenal of microscopic techniques that have commonly been used to characterize nanomaterials.

Analysis and Fate of Surfactants in the Aquatic Environment by Damia Barcelo Analysis and Fate of Surfactants in the Aquatic Environment, Hardback (August 2003)

Provides policy makers and industry with information on analysis and concentrations of surfactants and their degradation products in the environment. In addition to a general introduction to surfactants, this book comprises a comprehensive variety of analytical techniques.
