"Arsenic Contamination of Groundwater: Mechanism, Analysis, and Remediation includes an assessment of environmental health risks and economic impacts and the technologies available for dealing with the problem. It explores developments in the geochemistry, detection, measurement, removal, and toxicology of arsenic." This is a core reference for scientists working in the fields of geochemistry, analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry, and separation science and technology. It's also a great resource for academic and regulatory personnel working in these fields, plus aid agencies (such as the World Health Organization, World Bank, and UNICEF) and concerned nongovernmental organizations.
