Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This handbook has many valuable features and provides a wealth of information for the professional...should have wide appeal." (Environmental Practice, June 2006)

"...a comprehensive catalog of the benefits and drawbacks of virtually every available tool and technique." (Journal of the American Water Resources Association, April 2005)

"...should greatly simply the decision making process when selecting the proper monitoring method or instrument." (E-STREAMS, April 2005)

"Each chapter gives a detailed description of the instrument and methodology at hand, which is supported by valuable case studies and enriched by discussions of common pitfalls and how to avoid them." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, March 31, 2005)

“…an excellent guide to the variety of the techniques used for environmental monitoring and analysis.” (Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, February 2007)
