Description

Examines aquatic pollutants through a holistic approach in which the atmosphere, water, and sediment are considered interdependent compartments of an ecosystem. Four sections highlight air-water processes; water column processes; water-sediment processes; and case studies. Emphasizes the chemical and physical processes controlling solute behavior and fate in air and water. Integrates information on these processes into a systemwide picture of the cycling of inorganic and organic chemicals. Useful volume for both marine, atmospheric, and industrial chemists.

Contents

Method for Estimating Solubilities ; Vapor-Particle Partitioning ; Lake Sediments as Historic Records ; Pollutant Behavior in Fog ; Air-Sea Transfer of Trace Elements ; Mechanisms Controlling Trace Element Distribution ; Metal Speciation in Natural Waters ; Ion Budgets in a Seepage Lake ; Mechanisms of Alkalinity Generation ; Hydrophobic Organic Compounds ; Role of Particulate Matter ; Sediments as Archives ; Polychlorinated Biphenyls in Lake Superior ; Fate of Some Chlorobenzenes from Niagara River ; Role of Particle-Mediated Processes ; Element Cycling in Wetlands
