Overview

This book provides practicing engineers and graduate students with a clear, comprehensive introduction to transport processes in environmental systems. Structured to suit a one-semester, introductory course on the subject, it begins with the basics of molecular diffusion and chemical partitioning and then progresses to more advanced topics including dispersion, particle transport, fractals and biofilms. Throughout, the author places an equal emphasis on both engineered and natural systems. Each chapter draws on realistic examples and problems to reinforce important concepts. Environmental Transport Processes is an ideal first textbook for environmental engineering students who have never studied mass transport, as well as undergraduate and graduate chemical engineering students with little or no experience in environmental topics. It is also a valuable working resource for professionals in those fields, and all researchers interested in transport processes.

Editorial Reviews

Ecotoxicology
...a comprehensive tour of the subject...a well prepared book for the library.
Booknews
Provides practicing engineers and graduate students with a comprehensive introduction to transport processes in environmental systems. Coverage includes the basics of molecular diffusion, chemical partitioning, dispersion, particle transport, fractals, coagulation, and biofilms. Logan (environmental engineering, Pennsylvania State U.) places an equal emphasis on natural and engineered systems. Appends transport equations, properties of chemicals, and mathematical functions and solution techniques. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
“It also would be useful for people that work with these issues. Environmental Transport Processes can be recommended both to undergraduate and graduate students seeking to gain a good comprehension of environmental transport processes.” (Environ Earth Science, 19 October 2012)
