The third edition of <i>Chemical Fate and Transport in the Environment</i> explains the fundamental principles of mass transport, chemical partitioning, and chemical/biological transformations in surface waters, in soil and groundwater, and in air. Each of these three major environmental media is introduced by descriptive overviews, followed by a presentation of the controlling physical, chemical, and biological processes. The text emphasizes intuitively based mathematical models for chemical transport and transformations in the environment, and serves both as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses in environmental science and engineering, and as a standard reference for environmental practitioners.<br><br><ul><li>Includes many worked examples as well as extensive exercises at the end of each chapter</li><li>Illustrates the interconnections and similarities among environmental media through its coverage of surface waters, the subsurface, and the atmosphere</li><li>Written and organized concisely to map to a single-semester course</li><li>Discusses and builds upon fundamental concepts, ensuring that the material is accessible to readers who do not have an extensive background in environmental science</li></ul>
