Professionals and students who come from disciplines other than chemistry need a concise, yet reliable guide that explains key concepts in environmental chemistry, from the fundamental science to the necessary calculations for applying them. Updated and reorganized, Applications of Environmental Aquatic Chemistry: A Practical Guide, Second Edition provides the essential background for understanding and solving environmental chemistry problems that arise most frequently. Diverse and self-contained chapters offer a centralized and easily navigable framework for finding useful data tables that are ordinarily scattered throughout the literature. The book explains how to interpret the significance of water quality data, including expanded tables with water quality parameters and chemicals that relate to water quality. It also contains EPA water use classifications and describes treatment methods for industrial, municipal, and agricultural waste discharges. Worked examples provide step-by-step details for frequently used calculations, drawing on case histories from real-world environmental applications. Chapters also offer tools for calculating quick estimates of important quantities and practice problems that apply the principles to different conditions. This practical guide provides an ideal basis for self-study as well as short courses involving the movement and fate of contaminants in the environment.Health Concerns Perchlorate interferes with thyroid functions because it is similar in size to the iodide anion and can ...
