With clear explanations, real-world examples and updated questions and answers, the tenth edition of Environmental Chemistry emphasizes the concepts essential to the practice of environmental science, technology and chemistry while introducing the newest innovations in the field. The author follows the general format and organization popular in preceding editions, including an approach based upon the five environmental spheres and the relationship of environmental chemistry to the key concepts of sustainability, industrial ecology and green chemistry. This readily adaptable text has been revamped to emphasize important topics such as the world water crisis. It details global climate change to a greater degree than previous editions, underlining the importance of abundant renewable energy in minimizing human influences on climate.
Environmental Chemistry is designed for a wide range of graduate and undergraduate courses in environmental chemistry, environmental science and sustainability as well as serving as a general reference work for professionals in the environmental sciences and engineering.
Stanley Manahan is Professor Emeritus of the University of Missouri Department of Chemistry where his career was devoted to teaching and research in environmental chemistry and related areas of sustainability and waste treatment. He has presented lectures on these topics as an American Chemical Society Tour Speaker and in a number of foreign countries including Mexico, Venezuela, Austria, France, and Japan. His book, Environmental Chemistry, now entering its 10th edition, was the first published on that topic and has been in print in various editions since 1972.
