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.
