The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry

Reactions and Processes

123 Jahrgänge | 1980 - 2020

Beschreibung

In over three decades, The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry has established itself as the premier reference source, providing sound and solid knowledge about environmental topics from a chemical perspective. Written by leading experts with practical experience in the field, the series continues to be essential reading for environmental scientists as well as for environmental managers and decision-makers in industry, government, agencies and public-interest groups.

Two distinguished Series Editors, internationally renowned volume editors as well as a prestigious Editorial Board safeguard publication of volumes according to high scientific standards.

Presenting a wide spectrum of viewpoints and approaches in topical volumes, the scope of the series covers topics such as

  • local and global changes of natural environment and climate
  • anthropogenic impact on the environment
  • water, air and soil pollution
  • remediation and waste characterization
  • environmental contaminants
  • biogeochemistry and geoecology
  • chemical reactions and processes
  • chemical and biological transformations as well as physical transport of chemicals in the environment
  • environmental modeling

A particular focus of the series lies on methodological advances in environmental analytical chemistry.

The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry is available both in print and online via http://link.springer.com/bookseries/698. Articles are published online as soon as they have been reviewed and approved for publication.

Meeting the needs of the scientific community, publication of volumes in subseries has been discontinued to achieve a broader scope for the series as a whole.
