Introduction -- Sources, properties, and case studies -- How is percholrate measured? -- How does perchlorate behave in the environment -- What are the implications of human and ecological exposures to perchlorate? -- What are the regulatory limits on perchlorate? -- How can perchlorate be treated? "Perchlorate: Environmental Problems and Solutions offers a comprehensive, single source of information on perchlorate contamination in the environment. Summarizing the state of the science and developments in engineering, the book describes: common sources of perchlorate; its behavior in the environment; methods for analyzing perchlorate in environmental samples; potential risks to human health and the environment; regulatory standards and criteria; and techniques for remediating environmental contamination." "The authors illustrate these points with case studies of perchlorate contamination in soil, groundwater, and surface. Organized to follow the logical sequence of identifying and solving contamination problems, the book provides the foundation necessary to understand perchlorate's occurrence, environmental behavior, regulatory status, and remediation."--Jacket.
