"In Environmental Soil and Water Chemistry, leading soil and water authority V.P. Evangelou presents a complete overview of the principles and applications of soil science, addressing the subject by viewing the interactions between soil and water as a basis for understanding the nature, extent, and treatment of polluted soil and water. The text opens with a discussion of principles - the fundamental tenets of chemistry needed to understand soil and water quality and treatment of polluted resources - and continues with a look at applications for the control and treatment of soil and water. This text is suitable for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students."--Jacket.
