Contents Notes
Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment covers the fundamental principles of mass transport chemical partitioning, and chemical transformation in surface waters, in groundwater or subsurface environments, and in the atmosphere. Each of these three major environmental media are introduced by descriptive overviews, including the controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. The text emphasizes intuitively based mathematical models for chemical transport and transformations within these three environmental media. pt. 1. Basic concepts -- 1.1 Introduction -- 1.2 Chemical mass and concentration -- 1.3 Mass balance and the control volume -- 1.4 Physical transport of chemicals -- 1.5 Mass balance in an infinitely small control volume -- 1.6 Units, error and uncertainty -- 1.7 Basic environmental chemistry -- 1.8 Chemical distribution among phases. pt. 2. Surface waters -- 2.1 Introduction to surface waters -- 2.2. Physical transport in surface waters -- 2.3 Air-water exchange -- 2.4 Chemical and biological characteristics of surface waters -- 2.5 Biotic chemical transformations -- 2.6 Abiotic chemical transformations -- 2.7 Conclusion. pt. 3. The subsurface environment -- 3.1 Introduction -- 3.2 Physics of groundwater movement -- 3.3 Flow in the unsaturated zone -- 3.4 The flow of nonaqueous phase liquids -- 3.5 Retardation -- 3.6 Biodegradation -- 3.7 Conclusion. pt. 4.
