"Elements of Environmental Chemistry uses real-world examples to help readers master the quantitative aspects of environmental chemistry. Complex environmental issues are presented in simple terms to help readers grasp the basics and solve relevant problems. Numerous sample problems help readers apply their skills. An interactive textbook for students, this is also a great refresher course for practitioners."--Jacket.
