Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment is a textbook for upper division undergraduate and graduate students studying environmental sciences in engineering, hydrology, chemistry, and other related disciplines. It covers the fundamental principles of mass transport and chemical partitioning, and the transformation of substances in surface water, in groundwater or subsurface environments, and in the atmosphere. Three major areas-surface water, ground water, and air-are covered, with descriptive overviews for each area. Each major section begins by describing environment: its controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. The book also contains examples of common environmental problems and includes problem sets at the end of each chapter.
Text that has been developed from a course taught at MIT
Broad-based coverage of the environmental sciences
A more rigorous treatment of transport than found in other texts
Exercise sets at the end of each chapter
Examples of current environmental problems fully integrated into the text
Ample references for access to the primary literature
Numerous illustrations throughout

This newly updated and expanded edition of Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment covers the fundamental principles of mass transport, chemical partitioning, and chemical/biological transformation in surface waters, in soil and groundwater, and in air. In this textbook, each of these three major environmental media is introduced by descriptive overviews, followed by presentation of the controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. Emphasis is placed on intuitively based mathematical models for chemical transport and transformations. Although developed for a one-semester graduate course, Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment, Second Edition, is also an essential reference for environmental practitioners in industry, consulting, and government agencies.
· Provides an integrated treatment of major environmental media
· Presents a quantitative treatment of fate and transport processes
· Is based on a graduate-level course taught for 10 years at MIT, augmented with practical consulting experience
· Features examples and illustrations throughout the text
· Includes extensive exercises at the end of each chapter
· Contains ample references to the primary literature
