Contents Notes
Introduction to environmental data acquisition -- Basics of environmental sampling and analysis -- Environmental sampling design -- Environmental sampling techniques -- Methodology and quality assurance/quality control of environmental analysis -- Common operations and wet chemical methods in environmental laboratories -- Fundamentals of sample preparation for environmental analysis -- UV-visible and infrared spectroscopic methods in environmental analysis -- Atomic spectroscopy for metal analysis -- Chromatographic methods for environmental analysis -- Electrochemical methods for environmental analysis -- Other instrumental methods in environmental analysis -- Experiments. "This unique reference focuses on the overall framework and why various methodologies are used in environmental sampling and analysis. An understanding of the underlying theories and principles empowers environmental professionals to select and adapt the proper sampling and analytical protocols for specific contaminants as well as for specific project applications." "With real-life case studies that illustrate the principles plus problems and questions at the end of each chapter to solidify understanding, this is a practical, hands-on reference for practitioners and a great textbook for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in environmental science and engineering."--Jacket.
