Contents Notes
Introduction to environmental quality -- Our environment : atmosphere and hydrosphere -- Our environment : soil ecosystems -- Soil nitrogen and environmental quality -- Soil phosphorus and environmental quality -- Soil sulfur and environmental quality -- Trace elements -- Organic chemicals in the environment -- Biogeochemical cycles, soil quality, and soil management -- The atmosphere : global climate change and acid deposition -- Remediation of soil and groundwater -- Risk assessment. "Soils and Environmental Quality, Second Edition presents an overview of basic soil science, hydrology, and the classification of pollutants. This completely revised and updated reference provides detailed discussion of the roles of soils and humans in the biogeochemical cycling of soil contaminants and substances of environmental concern. The authors examine nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur, trace elements, organic chemicals, greenhouse gases, and acid precipitation in depth, and emphasize the interactions of these potential pollutants with the soil, aquatic, and atmospheric environments."--Jacket.
