'Written as an authoritative guide for analytical chemists, geochemists, soil scientists, agricultural chemists and environmental scientists at postgraduate level and beyond, Trace Metals in Soils provides an up-to-date, balanced and comprehensive review of the field. The text is divided into four sections: Basic chemistry and general principles - presents an overview of metal inputs, current regulations, basic chemistry in soils, and analytical tests, tools and protocols for content determination. Long-term behavior of trace metals in soils - reviews issues and major sources of metal inputs which will remain important in the future. Remediation and management of metal contaminated soils - discusses environment-friendly cleanup technology for metal contaminated soils. Individual metals. The book presents the latest advances in the field, bringing together subject matter currently dispersed across many different journals in order to produce a comprehensive overview of the source, regulation, analysis, chemistry, fate and management of trace metals in soils. Written from an applied perspective, the content is equally relevant to students, industrial scientists and regulatory bodies'.-- From back cover.
