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:
Characterization of contaminants in sediments being bioavailability the main issue
Effect directed analysis and toxicity
Benthos sediment quality assessment
Modelling of pollutant fate and behaviour
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 also available as part of a 4-volume set, ISBN 0444519599. Discount price for set purchase.
